Arctic Blue Light Tour by boat around the Isle of Tromsø

Sørøya Havfiskecruise has been operating since 2006 and we can proudly introduce ourselves as pioneers of winter tourism by boat in Tromsø. We are a local North Norwegian Company with local skippers and crew.

This tour is conducted by Sørøya Havfiskecruise.

Winter 2024/25: This tour is available during the preiod 20th October 2024 to 26th March 2025.

Local Norwegian skippers and crew with years of experience, makes this a memorable, safe and comfortable trip. We use our solid and cozy catamaran MB Havcruise. In the winter time the owners live on board themselves. A maximum of 12 guests per trip provides a social and a cozy atmosphere.

This is a two hour trip which goes around the beautiful island of Tromsø. Due to the weather we might change the route to other wonderful places.

This is mainly thought to enjoy the bright winter colours and scenery of our Arctic winter landscape. From about 21 November to 21 January, Tromsø experience the Polar Night. We also call it the blue light season. This trip is during the time of day when the intense blue light comes out.

Sometimes we see porpoises, white -beaked dolphins, seals, eagles and other seabirds. We often tell local stories, and are open to questions about the city and other things.

We serve hot drinks and homemade cakes on this trip.

We are very serious when it comes to safety. Yearly checks are done to our equipment and boat at an authorized ship yard. All our passengers are well insured on board.

Our slogan is quality over quantity!
