Fishing & Fjord Cruise - Hermes II

This activity is conducted by Hermes II.

Welcome aboard the Hermes II for an unforgettable fishing and fjord cruise. This beautifully restored vessel promises a day filled with adventure and tranquillity on the open sea. You have the option to bring your own fishing gear or use ours, or simply join us to soak in the maritime experience.

Join us for an authentic coastal experience as the captain guides us to prime fishing locations amidst breathtaking scenery. Whether you reel in a trophy-sized catch or not, you'll relish the mesmerizing views, savour the tranquillity of the open sea, and uncover the captivating tale of this venerable vessel. And if luck is on our side, we'll prepare and serve the day's fresh catch with butter and flatbread, turning a memorable day into an unforgettable feast.

Picture this: moments of serene calm with a warm cup of coffee in hand, swiftly transitioning to pure excitement when you feel that exhilarating tug on your line. Whether you're a local or a visitor, this trip offers a chance to test your fishing skills and luck in a spectacular setting.

The Hermes II, originally constructed in 1917 as a cargo ship transporting fish, coal, animals, and construction materials, evolved to include shrimp and capelin fishing in its repertoire. Following years of painstaking restoration work from 2016 to 2019, it was rightfully designated a certified preservation masterpiece. In 2021, our unwavering commitment to preserving this vessel earned us the esteemed Tromsø Culture Community Award.

Welcome aboard and be a part of this incredible chapter in Norwegian history!
