What people are saying about Austvågøya

Our guide, Julie, was a fount of knowledge about the culture, stories and the environment that we explore. Having a marine biologist is always a plus, particularly one who is multilingual and genuinely enthusiastic about the experience she was providing. The addition of the underwater drone was fascinating and educational. I appreciate that there was a strong environmental preservation message!

Beautiful tour of the Trollfjord with competent and trained staff. Very good Italian guide, friendly and very nice who illustrated (in English) the peculiarities of the place and the underwater fauna that we saw with an underwater drone. The boat, very beautiful, stopped in all the places of interest making us enjoy the splendid tour to the fullest. Not to be missed!

Very enthousiast crew, very nice sunny weather en calm sea. Ingredients for a fantastic trip. We enjoyed every minute of it. The underwater drone pictures were stunning as was the goal of the trip; Trollfjord itself

We had such a fine time with the Silent Trollfjord cruise! The best part was the trollfjord (of course...) and the lovely guide - Julia! The whole crew was so nice and proffesional! highly recommended!
