  •  /  km From You
Overview

Did you know that the old word "Fjord" means "Crossing" or "Passageway"? Fast fun adventures with safety oriented staff. A Rib boat adventure is the best way to see the sights.

Description and itinerary:
Our trip leaves Tromsø island. Every tour visit points of interest along the route. Old fish farms, and glacier arms used to define the landscape. Here the first settlers, arrived by boats. Then came Sami, Russians, Vikings and Finns, and it became crowded. In the Fjord, where Tromsø lays, was the border of the old kingdom of Hålogaland. From here on, was nothing but outlaws and barbarians.

The RIB is fast, and nimble. It gives a good impression of how animals of the area use the water to move around. The waterways give a snapshot of a much more global reality.

Fjords are deep, with strong currents. The geological history is visible in the narrow straits outside the “Whale island”. The word “Troms” is in fact belived to derive from the Norwegian word for current “Strøm”. The glacial scars are visible.

By the ocean, you feel smaller. The horizon opens up and you see why the Arctic is a strategic location. Here are new shipping routes, fishing banks and oil.
