Full description
Departing from Tromso, board a RIB boat, or rigid-inflatable boat - a lightweight but high-performance boat. Set off to explore the beautiful Hella region, navigating along the Ry tidal current. Discover how this current attracts fish, who in turn attract birds. Keep your eyes peeled for lots of local wildlife species during the ride. Dock the boat, and walk 5 minutes to a small boathouse where you can enjoy coffee, tea, and muffins. Admire the beautiful views of fjords, mountains, and wildlife surrounding you. Observe the strength of the current you just navigated. Finally, start the short hike back to the RIB boat and begin your exciting navigation back to Tromso.

    Päivämatka peruuntui, ilmoitus tuli kun olin jo matkalla tapaamispaikalle. Siitä hieman miinuksia, mutta keskiyön auringon matka olikin ehkä parempi! Sama ihana opas, joka oli Skervøyssä valasretkellä. Osaa todella hommansa! Ihana sää, rauhallista ja tyyntä. Näimme hylkeen, merikotkan, merimetson, uskomattoman kauniita vuorimaisemia ja ja tietysti paljon aurinkoa. Hyvin järjestetty, turvallisuudesta huolehdittu, oikein mukava reissu!

    Good to be out in the sea

    Probably best if you bring a binocular to see the birds and seals up close. Also try to go when it's not rainy or cloudy. Can be cold but that's why you get suited up but it's not as comfy. Also the lesser stuff you bring to the trip, the better. You can only take pictures when the boat stops, unless you have waterproof camera (but too you're busy hanging on). And note, no toilet for 2 hours, the entire time you're on the tour.
