There is an Archipelago outside of Tromsø that is a truly unique and fairly unexplored destination consisting of hundreds of islands that are inhabited by several hundreds of seabirds alongside puffins, eagles and seals. We want to take you to this magnificent destination, therefore have created a thrilling rib excursion suitable for the entire family.
A fast, thrilling adventure around Tromsø.
This tour offers the perfect combination between a thrilling experience at sea, and a short history lesson alongside the opportunity to spot wildlife such as seabirds, eagles, and sometimes seals or porpoises (small whales in the size of a dolphin). We don’t always see the mammals inside the fjords where this tour navigates, but the stunning nature and fast paced experience is a really appreciated experience with excellent feedback from our guests.
We provide warm safety suits, goggles, gloves and boots to make this Arctic experience in the fjords as comfortable as possible. Your skipper is an experienced, certified skipper and we always keep the groups small (up to 12 people) for you to get the personal experience and connection with our guides that we strive for at Pukka Travels.
Before the tour takes off we will meet up at our Base camp in central Tromsø for a briefing and to get dressed in the necessary gear to stay dry and warm. The RIB boat is located about 200 meters from the base camp. You will get your own seat and an assigned small locker where you can keep a small bag or a camera safe. During the tour, there will be opportunities to take photos and ask questions when we stop at points of interest. After the tour we will gather again in our warm lounge and enjoy a cup of fresh coffee / tea.
