Fjord Cruise & Five senses
We invite our guests to a multiple senses experience in Tromsø! Start heading out on a cruise around Tromsø, where you will start with the two senses: Sight and hearing!
Set sail from Tromsø city center accompanied by a knowledgeable, English-speaking guide who will give you an introduction to the local history and culture. You will see the beautiful Norwegian landscapes and mountains, the local wildlife (if you are lucky you can spot small whales, eagles, reindeers, dolphins and even seals), learn it all about the weather and the arctic eco system, the war and the Viking history, industries like fishing and aquaculture.
After the boat part of the trip, you will conclude with the final last three senses: Touch, smell and taste!
