What people are saying about Troms County

Lovely and very quiet trip. Nothing for an impatient soul, but nice when you are on a trip with a soulmate. We had a trip in the first half of May - and even though we can borrow a warm suit, WEAR ENOUGH CLOTHES that you can fit in a large warm suit (do not take a coat, take a short down jacket, stilongs, etc.). Nice operators who took us to some areas where there were occasional eagles to see, we did not have luck this time, but anyway wonderful scenery and wonderful skies. It does not matter that we had a trip a week before midnight sun, the sun is barely below the horizon anyway.

Nick was very good and explained all about local culture and history. We had very good sunny day after couple of rainy day, trip made natural wow factor as we go. Nick tried to capture our photos as well as given opportunity to take ample photos for our own. Various photo stops was great considering sunny day. Snow covered mountains and fjords was looking great .

Excellent fjord cruise in opulent comfort on a serene electric catamaran. Great service, lovely food and drinks. Only thing that let it down was the weather, but the captain found a dark location where some clouds cleared and stars were viewed. Alas, no aurora. But highly recommended trip. Would do it again!

A perfect day exploring the fjords of Norway. Our guide had a perfect knowledge of the region and great kindness. I recommend.

It was very nice also because we were lucky to have sunny weather.
