TIAMA is available for charter worldwide, see below for our 2018 sailing schedule


Tiama’s great adventure 2018, Amsterdam to Svalbard (80 degrees North).

Please hereby find Tiama’s sailing schedule for the Northern Summer of 2018.

See if there is an adventure that may be of interest to you.

I have given a brief outline of every voyage, but can provide more detail if you want it.

We can also change the route a bit and go to different areas depending on the interests of people.

The cost per day per person differs greatly from the open Sea voyages to the coastal cruising voyages, in Lofoten and Svalbard.  This is a reflection of our cost in terms of extra search and rescue Insurance, Local permits and extra equipment  (Guns etc.) needed to operate in the various areas.

Voyage 1

6 Day/ 5 Night – 500 Nautical mile open sea voyage from Amsterdam to Bergen, Norway. Sailing from Amsterdam North through the Eastern North Sea to Norway and into the fjords spending the last night at anchor inside the fiords and then go on to Bergen.

Costs per person 6 days @ 125 per day = 750 Euro.

ETD Amsterdam 12 May – ETA Bergen 17 May

Voyage 2

10 Day/9 Night – 500 Nautical mile Coastal voyage along the Norwegian coast from Bergen to Bodo which is the beginning of the Lofoten region. We will be sailing mostly through the inside passages, anchoring some nights in the fiords and small coastal settlements, Viking country.

We will also sail on the outside open sea for a few nights while making our way north to Bodo.

Cost per person 10 days @ 190 per day = 1900 Euro

ETD Bergen 20 May – ETA Bodo 29 May

Voyage 3

12 Day /11 Night – 285 Nautical mile relaxed coastal cruising voyage in the famous and magic Lofoten area starting in Bodo cruising around the Lofoten area for a week and then north through the inside passage to Tromso. On this voyage we will have lot more time to visit towns and places of interest, go for walks and the fishing is supposed to be very good.

Cost per person 12 days  @ 260 per day = 3120 Euro

ETD Bodo 2 June – ETA Tromso 13 June

Voyage 4

8 Day / 7 Night – 600 Nautical mile mostly open sea voyage sea from Tromso Norway to Longyearbyen Svalbard we will be sailing into high Arctic waters passing close by and a possible stop at the remote island of Bjornoya. I have given this voyage a few extra days to be able to stop at this island or in some anchorages in Svalbard before we get to Longyearbyen. This is all getting pretty remote country and should be very interesting

Cost per person 8 days  @ 200 euro per day = 1600 euro

ETD Tromso 16 June – ETA Longyearbyen 23 June

Voyage 5

The first of 2 Svalbard voyages, voyage 5 and 6 are the same but on different dates.

14 day/13 Night – 600 Nautical mile Coastal cruising voyage in the High Arctic along the west coast of the Island of Spitsbergen going right up to the fiords along the top of Spitsbergen. These voyages are all about sailing in a very remote Arctic environment with lots of history together with an amazing amount of wild life around you including Polar Bears. We will be going on walks almost every day but will always carry a shotgun just in case any polar bears need scaring off.

We will be departing and returning to the main town of Longyearbyen were there is a good airplane connection to the rest of the world. On these voyages we will go as far north as we can ice permitting and explore the more remote northern fiords.

Lots of wild life and history around.

Cost Per person 14 days @ 380 Euro per day is 5320 Euro

ETD Longyearbyen 29 June  – ETA Longyearbyen 11 July

Voyage 6

Has the same itinerary as voyage 5 with different dates

Cost Per person 14 days @ 380 Euro per day is 5320 Euro

Voyage 7

A private voyage with my family – brothers and sisters.

Voyage 8

Is the return voyage home from Longyearbyen to Amsterdam

22 day – 1700 Nautical mile combination of a coastal and open sea voyage over about 3 weeks

stopping in Tromso, Bode and some of the inside passages and fiords on the Norwegian Coast

Cost per person for the whole voyage 22 days @ 150 Euro per day = 3300 Euro, less if you come for a shorter period.

This trip can be broken up in smaller segments for those who can only commit for a shorter period of time.

ETD Longyearbyen 7 September – ETA Amsterdam 28 September

Some General notes;

All the prices are inclusive of all boat costs, food, fuel, harbour fees, permits, boat insurance etc.

Your extra costs are, flights and accommodation before and after the voyage, and personal travel insurance.

The maximum number of passengers per voyage is 4 or 5 people plus crew.

So for most of the voyages we will be 6 possible 7 people onboard including the crew.

For the Svalbard voyages we need a minimum of 4 passengers per voyage to make it work.

If there is not enough interest for the two Svalbard voyages then we will condense them into one Svalbard voyage.

If you want to charter the boat as a group then the fee is 1520 Euro per day for the Svalbard area. This includes a skipper and food, fuel for the voyage.

Looking forward hearing from you,

Kind Regards
