All this while enjoying nature and pleasant company. Feel the calm on board when we sail out of the harbour. Enjoy yourself on the deck and enjoy the nature around you.

There are also a lot of great photo opportunities along the entire route.

Excellent trip for both local and visiting guests, whether you want to enjoy the boating experience and the surroundings, or if you are passionate about old boats and history.

The boat was built in 1917 and was originally a cargo boat for fish, coal, animals and building materials. Fishing for shrimp and capelin was later added. After many years of hard work, the boat was completely renovated from 2016 to 2019, making it a certified preservation project. In 2021, the work and dedication to preserving this boat were rewarded with the Tromsø Culture CommunityAward. Welcome to an amazing piece of Norwegian history!
