This was experience was way better than I expected. The guides often came to our group to discuss with us. One guide was speaking in a microphone that could be heard everywhere inside and outside on the boat, explaining the history of the surrounding areas and the behaviors of the whales and some animals that live around Trømso. We were lucky enough to see many white tailed eagles, and a TON of whales (around 10 humpback whales). The wales were spotted in the distance, and we were able to get a bit closer. At the end some came very very close to the boat, it was epic. My only regret is not bringing a camera or binoculars with me! Another thing I appreciated with this tour is that it uses a hybrid propulsion system, which is less impactful on the climate and the whales. Aboard the ship they had food that looked good and a good selection of beverages. Overall this was a great experience and I would highly recommend it.
Incredible and unique experience! We saw several pods of orcas, as well as humpback whales all feeding and feasting on shoals of herring. We expected to see one or two individuals but instead were spoiled by Mother Nature. Additionally, the crew were absolutely fantastic, helpful, kind and very knowledgeable. The Captain ensures to respect the animals in their natural habitat by keeping a healthy distance, allowing these beautiful creatures to approach the boat instead, once they feel comfortable enough to do so. A must do in Tromsø.
Due to bad weather condition, we were not able to see the North light in our naked eyes but our nice tour guide was able to capture in his camera some glimpse of north light. But we had the great experience during the trip. Edward (tour guide) was very effective and informative. Jacuzzi helped us a lot to comfort us while waiting the appearance of Aurora Borealis. Looking forward for the rebooking but didnt hear anything from the agency.
We did see the northern lights, and we could not go dog-sledding due to lack of snow. But no human can do anything about that... Thanks to kind and knowledgeable staff, we still had a great night out. Sitting by the fireside, meeting the huskies (such a wild but cuddly bunch!) and having a nice dinner in the "gamme" - a really good experience. Also, well-arranged transport from downtown Tromsø and back.
That was the best experienced to be in a camping site and waiting if theres a chance to see a northern light while drinking hot drinks on your choice but dont worry the Huskies are there to Pamper you and a very nice tour guide Will also help you to chat and ready to explain if you have some questions. Perfect place and can be recommended to everyone. Specially if your a dog lover
