What people are saying about Troms County

Thank you Brim Explorer Tromsø and our guides Sam and Frederick for taking us on such an inspiring and unforgettable journey through the fjords of Northern Norway. We had the amazing chance to admire several humpback whales, orcas and some white-tailed eagles in the most considerate way possible. What.a.spectacle!! I love the crew's enthuziasm and professionalism. I was a bit seasick, so i recommend some pills against that, if you know you might have it, but the guys made the experience memorable even so. I dare you not to fall in love with the crew, their love and respect for nature, the Arctic, Norway and it's views.

The tour was well organised, we were told the basic information about the wales and the service on board is very good! The scenery you get to see is incredible and totally worth it the price. We were lucky to see the wales on our day and the weather was fantastic what made it unforgettable! the best part is to stand outside and watch at the mountains etc., so I recommend to book it with a good weather forecast.

Really nice experience. We even saw a big group of humpback wales and then even a whole family of orcas, even though it is already end of January. Lovely guides, who give a lot of information about the region, the wales and the sea. Long boat trip with an amazing scenery, overall definetly highly recommended.

Had a really nice time, and was lucky enough to see many Orcas in addition to Finn whales. Fun presentations and help with spotting the whales from the excellent guides Daniel and Gonzalo made it even better :)

It was a professionally organised trip. Sam and his collegue from France made it very exciting. The service was perfect, they taught us a lot about whales.
