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

Everything worked out wonderfully. The welcome on site, the briefing, the guides. Everything perfect. Nice and competent. We saw a lot of white-tailed eagles and the guide knew the places where they can be found very well. He could also tell a lot about the fjord and the stories of the houses you can see. Incredibly beautiful tour. Especially with sunshine and 29 degrees :-). Just to be recommended. Many thanks say Nicole and Frank

It was a very nice boat tour in the Trollfjord, which can only be reached by boat. We saw a lot of white-tailed eagles, also up close. The guide was great, he gave us a lot of interesting information about the sea eagles and the area. We could also ask questions at any time, which he was happy to answer. This tour comes highly recommended.
