Arctic Light Evening Cruise with Hermes II

This activity is conducted by Hermes II.

Join us on an adventure into the Arctic light – summer or winter.

It is truly beautiful – whether it is during the long, bright summer evenings in the midnight sun or on boat trips enveloped in the Arctic blue tones of autumn and winter, with darkness that can suddenly explode in a spectacular Northern Lights dance.

A true relic of the past, the Hermes II was originally constructed in 1917 as a versatile cargo vessel, tasked with transporting fish, coal, animals, and building materials. Over time, it took on new roles, including shrimp and capelin fishing. After decades of tireless service, the boat underwent an extensive restoration project from 2016 to 2019, earning it the status of a certified preservation masterpiece. In 2021, this dedication to preserving our maritime heritage was honoured with the prestigious Tromsø Culture Community Award.

Step into the world of total relaxation on board our venerable wooden boat, just minutes away from the heart of Tromsø. The Hermes II seamlessly blends the charm of a bygone era with modern amenities, including a heated lounge, a well-stocked bar, and comfortable below-deck facilities.
Delicious fish soup from fishmonger Dragøy is included. We will anchor and serve fish soup and bread during the trip.

Enjoy authentic coastal experiences, beautiful nature and great photo opportunities in the beautiful boat from 1917. Warm suits and blankets are available for lending.

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