Boat and fjord tours in Northern Norway

With more than 1,000 fjords in Norway, you will find it hard to visit this country without going on a fjord trip.

If you are asking yourself where the most beautiful fjords in Norway are, some people might answer the fjords in Western Norway as these are the most famous, but up here in Northern Norway, the fjords are just as gorgeous and will leave you wanting to see more!

We offer some of the best fjord cruises in Norway as well as other boat tours all year round in Tromsø, Senja, Lofoten and Lyngenfjord! With a choice of one-hour cruises, half-day tours and full-day tours, there’s something for every traveller!

Explore the fjords and waterways a thousand ways

We believe that the best way to see the fjords of Northern Norway is by boat! Fjord cruises are a great way to relax and admire the landscapes full of beautiful mountains, islands, and picturesque Norwegian villages. You can travel in modern comfort on board a hybrid electric catamaran, at a slower pace on a sailing boat, or on board an old wooden boat for an authentic experience. For the more adventurous, you can opt for a rigid inflatable boat (RIB) tour and feel the adrenaline when the RIB picks up speed! Kayaking trips at Sommarøy, “the summer island”, are also available (check them out here).

Boat and Fjord tours in Tromsø

Boat and fjord tours are a great way to explore the nature surrounding Tromsø and its landscapes. You are welcome to bring your camera and take portraits and landscape photos during your tours and fill up your memories and camera. If you are lucky, you might spot reindeer, moose or white-tailed eagles.

We have several tours that go all-year round, both during winter and summer time, for you to experience the landscapes around Tromsø. If you would like to fish while in Norway, we have an all-year round Fishing & Fjord Cruise tour available for you, a Fjord & History Cruise or a cultural and historical tour with our 1-Hour Photo & History Cruise .

You can also join a Rigid Inflatable Boat and discover the surroundings of Tromsø and the arctic wildlife at Hella with our 3-hours RIB Excursion to Beautiful Hella. If you would like a private tour with just your group of friends and family, this is also possible by booking a Private RIB-boat excursion to Beautiful Hella.

During winter time

Discover the nature and snowy mountains and learn about the fishing tradition in Norway, with our Arctic Fjord Cruise. In the evening, you can try to spot the northern lights by going on a Northern Lights Sailing tour during the evening or, if you would like it to include dinner onboard a modern hybrid catamaran, try our Aurora Dinner Cruise. If you would love to try a true Nordic fishing experience, check our 3-hour Fishing Tour by boat.

During summertime

If you would like to experience the midnight sun onboard a silent comfortable catamaran around Tromsø we recommend our Midnight Sun/ Sunset Sailing.

If you would rather experience Tromsø earlier, we have the same tour starting earlier (at 12:00 noon) on our Arctic Summer Sailing Safari.

Boat and Fjord tours in Lofoten

The Lofoten islands are extremely popular during summertime, due to its nature, beauty, and life. Visiting and getting to know the Lofoten islands by boat is a great way to get to know the area, as you will avoid traffic, having to find parking, among other issues.

Will you be passing by Svolvær? This is the main starting point for many tours in Lofoten. Visit Skrova and Litlmolla, two beautiful islands, departing from Svolvær, with our Sailing, Hiking and Fishing Tour to Skrova and Litlmolla.

If you are looking for a boat trip to the famous Trollfjord, we have available our Silent Trollfjord Cruise and our Arctic Sail Safari to Trollfjord. If you would like to go on a Sea Eagle observation, join our Sea Eagle Safari to Trollfjorden.

If discovering Henningsvær, in the Lofoten, is part of your bucket list, then we recommend you our Henningsvær Cultural Tasting Cruise.

Riverboat tours at Reisa National Park

Located in the municipality of Nordreisa, in Troms county, known for its nature and beauty, valleys, waterfalls and its fauna and flora. If you enjoy nature, hiking, water and exploring new tracks, we recommend you our Riverboat and hike to Imo waterfall in the Reisa National Park or our Riverboat to spectacular Mollis waterfall in the Reisa National Park.

From sightseeing trips to wildlife and Northern Lights cruises

From sightseeing trips to wildlife and Northern Lights cruises

Most of the fjords in Northern Norway remain ice-free thanks to the warming Gulf Stream, meaning you can explore them all year round!

In the summer, embark on an evening boat trip in Tromsø and soak up the golden light of the Midnight Sun, and from early September to late March, observe Lady Aurora during a Northern Lights cruise!

You can also join sightseeing tours, dinner cruises and fishing trips in Tromsø or the Lofoten islands.  All these trips give you the opportunity to learn more about Norwegian culture and history.

From birds to swimming moose! 

Experience a wildlife in Northern Norway

If you are into Arctic animals, join a fjord and wildlife cruise in Tromsø or go on a whale watching tour from Tromsø (the whale-watching season is usually from early November to late January).

In Lofoten, the Trollfjord cruise is a popular choice. Trollfjord is only 2 km long but is one of the most famous fjords in Norway!

It’s not uncommon to spot golden eagles and sea eagles and sometimes seals or dolphins!

Bird-watching excursions are also organized during the summer in Senja.
