Sea sightseeing with an historical twist

Get to know Tromsø on a rib-boat tour where we stop at different areas worth seeing and provide you with some interesting facts about Tromsø. The tour also includes a trip to Ryisland, Ryøya and Hakøya.

During the tour you will also get to see Polstjerna, a vessel made for hunting seals. It is a important part of Tromsø's history.

We leave Tromsø island and set for Ryisland, an area known for its strong currents and lots of fish and bird life. Ryøya is an uninhabited island, the only animals on the island is Musk Ox. If you are lucky you will see them grazing by the shore! (Not guaranteed)

We will also take you to Hakøya, where the Germans suffered one of the biggest defeats during the 2nd world war, as their ship called Tirpitz was sunken here by the Englishmen. After some storytelling by your guide, we return to Tromsø.
