What people are saying about Svolvær

Great and cold experience!!They provided us a warm uniform, goggles and gloves to be put on your personal ones. It was a very good experience out there! Big waves and a snow storm made it more unique and fun. Of course we got a bit wet but the scenario is breathtaking and you get to see many eagles. The duration is enough, I was exhausted and cold at the end. I suggest warmer stickers for feet and to cover very well all your face.

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!

It was an amazing experience! Our captain was very nice,the boat was comfortable and we had a great weather. We so lots of sea eagles! And even spotted a few Dolphins on our way back to Svolvaer. We got a thermal suit,goggles and gloves that kept us nice and cozy. Over all it was great
