Tromsø is famously known for its beautiful nature, thriving marine life and beautiful fjords that are located around the main island. What not everyone knows, however is how much history and points of interest that are located in these incredible areas. Vikings and Sami people have been living here for more than 10,000 years, and throughout history the sea has been the main natural resource where societies and villages have been built around the area during this time. This tour offers the perfect combination between a thrilling experience at sea, and a short history lesson alongside the opportunity to spot wildlife such as seabirds, eagles, and sometimes seals or porpoises (small whales in the size of a dolphin). We don’t always see the mammals inside the fjords where this tour navigates, but the stunning nature and fast paced experience is a really appreciated experience with excellent feedback from our guests.

There is something magical about seeing the northern lights in the sky, the colors and its movement. Sailing in a boat is a fast way to do it, in one of the best short cruises, leaving Tromsø city center: you will have a different perspective of the city, with beautiful views of the Northern Lights. We sail north or south, accordingly to the weather forecast and where the possibility of seeing northern lights is higher. We sail in a very cozy boat, with space outside and inside if you get cold just get inside and warm yourself with free tea, coffee and biscuits! You can also relax in our outdoor jacuzzi, under the northern lights or in the sauna onboard (subject to boat availability.) Our guides can also help you setting the definitions of your camera to better photograph the northern lights.
