Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:

Tromsø / Grøtfjord

Tromsø is the gateway to a series of sparkling fjords, narrow sea inlets protected by steep mountain slopes. Aboard an agile RIB vessel, several small islands -- many with only a few inhabitants calling them home--can be explored. The low island of Gåsvær is uninhabited with a few scattered buildings along its shores. Musvær boasts six inhabitants who operate a milk production facility. The fishing villages of Vengsøya and Kaldfjorden have 100 residents who live in cabins, and Grøtfjord, an idyllic village, is located about 35 kilometers from Tromsø, with a beautiful white-sand beach that attracts many visitors to its shores.

What you will see along the way:

The thrill of ridding in a RIB (rigid inflatable boat) is matched by the spectacular landscapes you'll see along the way. Begin in Tromsø, then see a series of small islands and the iconic fjord scenery. These areas attract marine life, which in turn draws birds to their shores, so expect to see and hear wildlife. On the motorcoach portion of the tour, drive though the city center and pass the airport before leaving Tromsø and heading across the bridge to Kvaløya, where striking scenery and reindeer can be seen in the pastures.

Snack:

In Grøtfjord, enjoy a light snack of muffins and hot coffee.
