Experience the Lofoten Islands from the ocean. We offer rafting trips on RHIBS. Come along and join us on an unforgettable journey through the prime of what Lofoten has to offer.
The Trollfjord sea safari
The open ocean, the steep mountains, the narrow inlets and the lush islets. The ever changing light and the crystal clear water. Snow-covered mountains that rise directly up from the ocean. An experience that you will never forget. Trollfjorden is beautiful and breathtaking year around.
Trollfjorden is two kilometers long and only 100 meters wide at the outlet at the west side of Raftsundet. The mountains Trolltindan rises 1045-1084 meters above sea level at the south side, and there is always a risk of rockfall down the steep mountainside. On the north side, the mountain Blåfjellet rises 998 meters above sea level. In the west, the lake Trollfjordvannet lies at 162 meters above sea level with lumps of ice floating around even in the summertime. It is a spectacular landscape that you can lose yourself in.
The Lofoten Islands have a rich population of eagles. We have gathered knowledge about the whereabouts of the sea eagles through many years. The result is that we are able to find the birds at almost every trip. We bring along a treat to coax the bird as close to the boat as possible.
The sea eagle is part of the accipitridae family, and is the largest raptor in Northern Europe. The largest eagles have a wingspan at 240 cm. They can get up to 50 years old, and often uses the same nest several years in a row. After the stock was preserved in the 60’s, the eagles have increased considerably in numbers and a big part of the Norwegian population nests in Nordland.

Safety is in focus on all our trips. Our boatmen have a solid nautical education and work experience. We have accurate knowledge of the water around the Lofoten Islands. Our company has developed our own security handling system pursuant to Norwegian laws, and all our boatmen have received training in the system. Before takeoff, we go through our security routines, and our passengers get equipped with personal mandatory survival equipment. We distribute thermal flotation suits, life jackets and goggles. Caps and gloves are distributed if needed. Our passengers should wear warm underwear and warm shoes.
Many people are under the impression that RHIB-tours are only for those who likes high speed and action, but that is not the case. Our trips are appropriate for most people. All passengers are assigned their own seat with back support. We adjust the speed to what is comfortable for our passengers. Often those who are the most skeptical when entering the boat, are the most pleased when they get out. Our boats are very stable and secure, and they can handle most conditions. The weather will seldom be a cause to cancel a trip. Personal equipment such as cameras and mobile phones are brought along at your own risk.
