Our most recommended Svolvær Rentals
1. From Svolvaer: Sea Eagle Safari to Trollfjord
Begin the sea eagle safari from the quayside in Svolaerr. Travel by boat through the beautiful Raftsundet strait before entering Trollfjorden. This is one of the most dramatic sceneries that Norway has to offer, and in an open boat, you can appreciate its spectacular natural beauty. There is a large population of sea eagles in Raftsundet. See if you can spot these majestic birds which have the largest wingspan in the world, at a length of up to 2.65 meters. Keep your camera at the ready to snap photos of the eagles, and if you are lucky, see them circle above the boat.
It was amazing to see the sea eagles catch fish in the beautiful fjord. The speedboat was fast, which made it fun, but at the same time I always felt safe.
2. Lofoten Islands: Trollfjord Cruise By Silent Electric Ship
Departing from the Svolvær harbor in the morning, you’ll set out for Trollfjord, about an hour away. On the way you can take in the breathtaking views in comfortable, panoramic lounges and multi-level decks. Experience a unique perspective on the mysterious depths of this fjord with incredible underwater drone stream. What do you think hides beneath the surface? Spend some time in Trollfjord, exploring white-tailed eagles soaring against the backdrop of soaring mountains. The engaging crew will tell you about the wildlife, landscape and history of the resilient communities that live in this epic coastal landscape. Onboard there’s a selection of beverages and local foods for purchase.
The electrical boat is perfect for such a trip. The guide had a nice way to give historical information about the place and trip.

What people are saying about Svolvær
Worth every penny. We were lucky and had fantastic weather. The staff is super friendly and explains everything you need to know. There are blankets and lambskins on the boat to keep you warm outside - but inside you almost feel like you are outside through the large panes. We were able to see and photograph many many eagles. It was the highlight of my trip in Lofoten :)
Wonderful trip to the Trollfjord on a modern vessel. We enjoyed amazing views on the mountains and the fjord. We had a little stop and watched a live stream from an underwater drone, the crew was super friendly, ready to help and to provide information. An absolute recommendation.
Very interesting course with a presentation of the Fjords and several points to observe sea eagles. We had mixed weather between rain and sun which did not prevent us from having a great time. You must be dressed very warmly and take waterproof gloves.
Great tour! The weather was perfect - blue skies and sunshine, our guide was very nice, answered a lot of questions about the sea eagles and fjords and showed us some great spots. Definitely a highlight!
It was a really great experience. The guides are very nice and especially the silent boat is amazing! Would definitely recommend!
