Full description
This tour offers the perfect combination between a thrilling experience at sea, and a short history lesson alongside the opportunity to spot wildlife such as seabirds, eagles, and sometimes seals or porpoises (small whales in the size of a dolphin). You won’t always see the mammals inside the fjords where this tour navigates, but the stunning nature and fast paced experience is always well received. You will be provided with warm safety suits, goggles, gloves and boots to make this Arctic experience in the fjords as comfortable as possible. Your skipper is both experienced and certified and you will always tour in a small group of no more than 12 people, allowing plenty of space on the boat and plenty of time to ask any questions you might have. Before your tour takes off you will meet at the Base camp in central Tromsø for a briefing and to get dressed in the necessary gear to stay dry and warm. The RIB boat is located about 200 meters from the base camp, you will get your own seat and an assigned small locker where you can keep a small bag or a camera safe. During the tour, there will be opportunities to take photos and ask questions when you stop at points of interest. At the conclusion of the tour you will gather again in the warm lounge to enjoy a cup of fresh coffee or tea.

    Gliding at full speed in a speedboat through the Tromso fjords is an experience in style. The incomparable landscapes. You can see eagles, cormorants, etc. Reindeer farms lining the coast, and the island where the entire city is located. The pilot / guide was extraordinary and above all very attentive. The equipment they give you for the adventure is complete and the hot drink and the cinnamon cake at the end of it are very replenishing. I definitely recommend it !!!

    Great fun

    Really fun activity, even if it was snowing and very cold! Got to see eagles and porpoises which was great. Jonas was lovely and provided us with information throughout. The lounge area for tea, coffee and cake was very welcome after the cold trip and was a nice touch. I would recommend.

    Fjord Fun

    I have never been on a RIB boat or a Fjord. What a fun way to traverse the waters around Tromso. Pukka tours delivered on all levels from the knowledgeable guide, warm snow suits, and goggles to a comfortable and sporty ride. We learned a lot about these waters, nature and local wildlife while having blast. We finished our tour with warm beverages and refreshments in the Pukka lounge complimented with the wonderful Norwegian hospitality.
