Your Destination

Tromsø is situated in the centre of the Northern Lights zone and is, therefore, among the best places on earth to observe this natural phenomenon that has been drawing visitors for decades. The gateway to the Arctic and the capital of northern Norway, Tromsø also has many cultural sights and excellent restaurants guaranteeing you an exciting stay. Visitors to Tromsø are often surprised to find such a vibrant and cosmopolitan city so far north – here you are a staggering 320 km inside the Arctic Circle!

Tromsø is the home to the world’s northernmost University, a beer brewery, a Cathedral, a Glassblowing hut, a Botanical Garden and an Electronic Music Festival. The city is surrounded by snow-topped peaks and glass-like lakes, providing spectacular scenery and great skiing, with evenings often bathed in the glow of the Northern Lights. In wintertime, rides in reindeer-driven sleighs, dog sledding, ice fishing and snowmobile trips followed by traditional Sami meals in lavvus or Sami tents will provide life-long memories. Book today to discover the land of Midnight Sun and Polar Nights.

Silent whale watching (1st Nov-7th Feb)

Your Optional Excursions
Brim offers a unique perspective on the feeding frenzy of Humpbacks and Orcas that come to Tromso in the winter. The team use a hybrid engine to reach the whale’s feeding grounds at Skjervøy in less than 3 hours and in time to enjoy the hours of daylight. You can enjoy fresh pastries and coffee in the comfortable salons as you take in the spectacular Arctic morning light, sailing past snow-covered landscapes, the Lyngen Alps, islands, fjords and fishing villages.

There is a good chance of spotting white tailed eagles, Europe’s largest bird of prey, and porpoises along the way. Our professional guide will give you an in-depth lecture about marine life during the trip. As you near the whales, our silent electric engine allows us to get close to these majestic animals without disturbing them. An underwater drone and hydrophone will also be able to capture the whales communicating as they cooperate to hunt the herring in the deep narrow fjords.
Please note that whales are wild animals, and constantly on the move. We can guarantee that we will do our best in finding them but cannot guarantee sightings.
