Live Location of Alma af Frøya

The classic Hardangerjakt “Alma af Frøya” was completed in 2012 to a very high standard, by Norwegian boat builder Harald Sørensen. Since launched, Alma has been used a school ship by the Municipality of Karmøy, and hence maintained in pristine condition. The ship was sold to the current owner in 2021 and is now used for expeditions with guest in the northern part of Norway, Iceland and Greenland. Onboard Alma you will feel the link to the traditional Norwegian boat builder art, and a seaworthiness that allows free and safe movement during cruising.
The inspiration and design of Alma is based on the traditional “Hardangerjakt”. This design was also the basis of Roald Amundsens ship “Gjøa”, which was used to transit the Northwest Passage for the first time in 1906.
“Alma af Frøya” is a classical Norwegian “Hardangerjakt”. She is a solid and sturdy vessel, that is built for handling arctic conditions and is fully equiped with SOLAS safety equipment. She is also insulated and hence very dry inside without any problems with condensation. The home port of Alma is at the island of Frøya in the midle of Norway, and she is owned by Amundsen Adventure.
Alma is 52 feet long, weighs 45 tons, and is very strong and sturdy. This is a boat for the outdoors, with ample deck space that offers plenty of room to enjoy the mountain views, the midnight sun, or the northern lights. Perfect for Ski & Sail in Lofoten, expeditions to Greenland, Jan Mayen and Iceland or just sliding quietly along the Norwegian coast hunting for the best fish, food, hiking or simply adventure.

Traditional Sailing

Under deck there is plenty of space, with a cozy galley midship and a big salon/orlop that ensures a social experience. In Alma you get to experience life onboard the same way they did when Amundsen transited the Northwest passage, but of course with modern facilities like kitchen, 3 indoor bathrooms and showers. Alma has traditional sailing bunks in the main saloon.
