All in one Tromsø: Northern Lights, Whale Safari & Overnight Sailing

An all inclusive tour tailored for you with the best of the Arctic in mind

If you are visiting Tromsø, you have the chance to sail through the fjords, see the Northern Lights and go on a whale safari in one affordable package. In our effort to provide you with the absolute best of Tromsø, we designed a tour with the most unique accommodation where you will sail under the Northern Lights and wake up to humpback whales and orcas outside your window.

Experience the Northern Lights and watch the whales hunt for herring in the fjords in one exclusive overnight package. 

We believe the two most incredible activities you can do while in Tromsø is experience the Northern Lights and watch the whales hunt for herring in the fjords. These moments are absolutely amazing and in this unique overnight package we provide both, in addition to maybe the most exotic sleeping arrangements in the Arctic.

Your Floating Hotel: Onboard our 72ft sailing vessel, Duen III, your comfort, safety and personalized experience is very important to us. The skipper and crew’s main priority, other than your safety is to get to know you, adjust the tour to your needs and help you get the most out of your time onboard. 

Northern Lights: When sailing through the polar night, your crew will prepare a homemade Norwegian meal while waiting for the Northern Lights to dance in the sky above us. We will take you to secluded spots to watch the lights from the deck, or if the weather permits, from the warmth of the heated hot tub on the aft of the boat. The boat also offers 360 panoramic views from inside the warm, indoor saloon if you prefer.

For the rest of the evening, you are free to sit outside with a cup of warm tea, or coffee, read a book in the saloon, or call it an early evening in the comfort of your very own cabin.

The skipper and crew’s main priority, other than your safety is to get to know you, adjust the tour to your needs and help you get the most out of your time onboard.

Whale Safari: In the morning you will wake up to fresh coffee and a delicious breakfast spread while the crew will to our favorite whale watching spots! We are always looking forward to greeting the majestic whales who seek food in the fjords during the winter time. Humpback whales and Orcas come far into the fjords each year to hunt for herring. This is a very unique phenomenon to witness while sailing in a luxurious and safe atmosphere onboard a catamaran.

The arctic fjords are breathtaking, but with the presence of the whales, words can truly not describe how magical the experience is, and we have made it our passion to combine the experiences of sleeping onboard, watching the Northern Lights, enjoying food and making new friends with an epic day out at sea the next morning.
