High summer sailing and exploring in the Orkney Islands
Norway is generally a very safe country for travel with punctual and clean public transport. Nearly all Norwegians speak excellent English and are very helpful. If you have any difficulties you shouldn’t have any trouble finding someone who can point you in the right direction. Remember at this time of year there is no ‘night’.
Wideroe for internal flights within Norway.
Sky Scanner has quite flexible search options.
Google Flights is an easy way to do flight research on availability and prices but does not seem to list Norwegian Air which often has the cheapest flights.
The Airport at Bodø is served by frequent buses and it takes 5 mins to the centre of town .
Check Bodø Airport bus times
Bodø Lufthavn (airport) is the airport stop. Here is a very nice Google interactive map for selecting your stop in town. Just put Bodo in one of the boxes and the map pops up. If you zoom out you can see the airport.
Train journeys in Norway are spectacular. Bodø Station is at the end of the line in the North of Norway and will be within easy walking distance of the boat. Train Travel in Norway is clean and surprisingly reasonably priced. Trains go to Trondheim, Bergen and Oslo among other destinations. If you have the time it’s a good way to glimpse the interior of Norway.
The exact location of Trinovante is finalised only on arrival in port. Assuming we have internet coverage we then email joining crew and update the Google Map below. For Bodo we have put boat icons on all the berths we have previously been allocated. This map gives you enough information to plan your travel and familiarise yourself with the area but remember for many reasons we may be on a different pontoon or quay on the day. You can always phone us to check on the day.
You can also follow Trinovante on AIS which will give an accurate location of our position in port. Vessel Finder is just one web site that provides free AIS ship tracking. Many of our crew now use AIS apps on their smart phones to find us.
