    Comfortable boat - I’m a dreadful sailor but this boat was very smooth and with the electric power there was no engine vibrating which usually doesn’t sit well with me. The crew were very friendly and informative and the visit ashore to see the museum was interesting . The use of the underwater drone was a real bonus

    The cruse was very nice even though it was snowing at the beginning and at the end. You can be outside (2 floors) or inside to observe the fjords, if you want to have good seats inside I suggest you arrive sooner than the meeting’s time on your voucher. The cruse starts by going all the way up the fjord until ice is blocking the way, then we get to see the underwater floor with a drone. After that we go in the opposite direction to make a stop to a traditional fishing fridge, learn how they used to fish and have a little tasting of local fish and beverages. Then we head back to Tromsø. There are drinks, food and everything you need on the boat at a reasonable price. The staff is great, very friendly and has great knowledge of the area and the arctic circle and its wildlife in general. Great cruising experience to do while in Tromsø !

    The ship was nice and big. The weather was not so good, but with the good seating and large windows we had a good view and could enjoy nature from the fjord side. The staff were sweet and welcoming and completed the trip in a professional way. The soup for breakfast was a bonus - super good.
