Worth every penny. We were lucky and had fantastic weather. The staff is super friendly and explains everything you need to know. There are blankets and lambskins on the boat to keep you warm outside - but inside you almost feel like you are outside through the large panes. We were able to see and photograph many many eagles. It was the highlight of my trip in Lofoten :)

Wonderful trip to the Trollfjord on a modern vessel. We enjoyed amazing views on the mountains and the fjord. We had a little stop and watched a live stream from an underwater drone, the crew was super friendly, ready to help and to provide information. An absolute recommendation.

The trip was really nice, very interesting; the guide Maurizio was really perfect, so kind and gave us a lot of valuable information. Really satisfied!
