What people are saying about Svolvær

The crew of the electric catamaran was very friendly, helpful and explained a lot. We thought the tour was a great success, even with children. Saw sea eagles and black guillemots and a whale skeleton. The underwater camera also showed great pictures. Food and drink delicious. Completely satisfied

Coolest experience! The kids loved it (14+11 years). Helpful, funny, serviceminded organizators/ guides. Cool ride, speady but safe, a lot of birds, facts and funny facts + history about the sorroundings. We will be back

The tour to the Trollfjord is very well organized. The passage into the fjord is scenically a dream. We set off in very bad weather and the cloud cover has broken up in the fjord. The tour was worth every euro.

Lovely cruise and awesome crew on board! Cruise was great with scenic views. The staff giving commentaries was funny and engaging. I would highly recommend this activity.

We really enjoyed the trip, it’s one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen.
