What to expect

Tromsø is well known for its magical fjords that are located around the main island and for its thriving marine life. What you might not know, however, is the amount of history and points of interest are located in this area of Norway. Vikings and Sami people have been living here for over 10,000 years and throughout history the sea has been the main natural resource around which societies and villages were built.

If you are looking for a fun and affordable means to explore these surroundings then you will love this RIB speed boat tour around the fjords with an experienced and certified skipper. After being briefed about the tour and getting dressed in the necessary gear to stay dry and warm, you will head to your assigned seat on the RIB boat. You will also have a designated a locker where you can keep a small bag or a camera safe from the water.

During the tour, you will learn about the history of the area and you might be able to spot wildlife such as seabirds, eagles and possibly seals. You will also have many opportunities to take photos and ask questions when you stop at points of interest. The group number is kept small so you can benefit from a more personal experience and connection.

This tour offers the perfect combination between a short history lesson and a thrilling experience at sea with speeds that go up to 45 knots. You will be provided with warm safety suits, goggles, gloves and boots to make this Arctic experience in the fjords as comfortable as possible. After the tour you will gather at the basecamp lounge and enjoy a cup of fresh coffee or tea to discuss your adventure and warm up.
