Fishing in the fjord

 

           

Fishing equipment provided

Feel the fresh sea breeze on your face, take in the spectacular views of fjords, mountains and arctic wildlife.

In late January the returning sunshine marks one of the most beautiful times in the Arctic calendar. Join us on this excursion and learn about the history of Tromsø’s waterways. Explore the Tirpitz battleship wreck, take in the breathtaking views and perhaps you will even catch a fish or two!

Fjord Cruise Tromso

A guide and skipper team will join your group of no more than 12 guests on the voyage. We will provide you with insulated floating suits. A hot locally prepared stew, hot drinks, and snacks are included.

This 4 hour trip is entirely by boat (no bus transfer required). Cruise directly from Tromsø Harbour to locations such as Ramfjord, which is one of the narrowest fjords in the area.

Your guide will meet you at the pick up point and you will take a short walk down to the harbour where your skipper will welcome you onboard our cabin cruiser, the Orca Express.

During your adventure we will stop and try our luck to catch some fish. You may be lucky and catch a Cod, one of the most common salt water fish in Norway. Norwegian Cod is known as Norway’s “white gold”.

Fish

Fjord Cruise Northern Norway

You are welcome to stay warm inside the spacious cabin, enjoying hot drinks, snacks and our complimentary wifi, or experience the Nordic sea air and go out on the 360 degree walk-around deck. Your guide will point out interesting sights, and will answer your questions about the area and any wildlife we spot.

As we cruise back to Tromsø, enjoy a warm meal prepared by Tromsø’s Mathallen, a popular local restaurant. After what we hope will be a memorable day, all you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy your journey back to the city.

Arctic Fishing

Due to the shortness of the days during these months, you will witness both sunrise and sunset whilst out on the water. This can also be a truly beautiful experience, and a photographers dream as there are two chances to shoot in the ‘golden hour’.

As always, with nature and animals in the wild, we can never guarantee that wildlife will come out to play. However, our guide and skipper team are experts in finding activity, and will do their very best to find some action.
