Tromsø

Arctic Fjord Cruise

As we set off from the harbour of Tromsø, you will get to admire the city's skyline in the morning light. Next, we will set the course to one of the region's most beautiful fjords: Ramfjord. This fjord is rich with stories, from the marine life that flourishes here to the historic Cold War facility of Olavsvern.

In contrast to other fjords, Ramfjord receives a high volume of freshwater from various rivers and creeks, which makes the water less salty and causes it to freeze over for a large part in wintertime.

Once we leave Ramfjord again, we continue cruising passed the mountains of Malangen and crossing Ristraumen towards the island of Kvaløya.

While onboard, you may purchase something to drink and eat. Warm, indoor lounges with panoramic windows will provide fantastic views of the epic coastal scenery of Arctic Norway.

For a big part of this trip, we will turn on our electric engine so you can enjoy the sights in silence and serenity.

In Kvaløya, we will dock the boat and visit a local fishing facility where you will learn more about the role the fishing industry has played (and still plays) in the history of Northern Norway, as well as how it has shaped the culture and family life in the Arctic. Then, enjoy a taste of our local products.

During the tour, our guide and captain will continuously look for wildlife sightings, from reindeer to white-tailed eagles and other birds. If the weather allows it, we might deploy our underwater drone into the fjord to give you a live view (on screens) of the marine life below the surface.
