Explore the hidden gems of the Tromsø Fjords

Upon departure we will explore the gorgeous fjords closest to Tromsø. These arctic fjords are filled with history and interesting sights. We can see the location of the old polar bear zoo on land and spot the remnants of the german battleship Tirpitz in the fjord. We will use our underwater drone to livestream the little bits that are still visible of this WWII ship and our guides will bring the story to life.

Immerse yourself in Tromsøs rich fishing history

Afterwards we continue south too Rya, where we step on land at an old fishing facility. Here we will go into the facility and our amazing guides will walk you through a small exhibition and share the stories of the industry that has shaped life, culture and tradition in the Arctic & Tromsø. They will also show you some of their rare catches, as well as let you try our northern speciality of dried fish and some fish oil. You can also get close to the famous fish racks outside.

Capture the beautiful Ersfjord

From here we switch to a bus and we continue overland to Ersfjord. Erfjord is a stunning fjord hugged by tall mountains that go straight down into the fjord. Along the way we might spot some wildlife. Once in Ersfjord, we will spend 10-15 minutes at this picturesque and iconic fjord for a photo stop. Afterwards we will return back to Tromsø. Our on board cafe has a selection of local food & drinks available for purchase.
