Hi George, The Arctic and Northern Waters guide was quite helpful in our Atlantic crossing stopping at The Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland last season.

Hi George, I wrote a few years back:
1. We used 3 cruising guides: Norwegian Cruising Guide by Nickel and Harries (lots of hiking/walking suggestions), RCC Norway by Lomax, and Havneguiden (can be downloaded with harbor pic s, diagrams and some English descriptions). They complement each other well. No one guide does it all. There are many duplicate harbor names so if you look up a harbor, make sure it is the one you want information about.

Charts and cruising guides - Norwegian Waters from Fling Fish 2014-1

Our favourite is the Norwegian Cruising Guide by John Harries and Phyllis Nickel, OCC, available in both electronic and paper versions from www.norwegiancruisingguide.com. (Reviewed in Flying Fish 2010/2, and currently updated to May 2013).
The Havneguiden harbour guides, with summaries in English, are complementary to the Norwegian Cruising Guide with diagrams and photos, particularly of natural harbours, including indications of where it is possible to tie up alongside.
We also used Den Norske Los, which is only available in Norwegian but is very useful and comprehensive.
