Hermes II

This tour is conducted by Hermes II. This fjord- and photo cruise around Tromsø gives you a blend of well chosen photo spots in our incomparable surroundings and the unique history of the authentic old wooden boat.
Find total relaxation on board our authentic old wooden boat and enjoy the experience just minutes from Tromsø town centre. Hermes II is an old boat with modern technology and facilities. Among other things, it has a heated lounge, a bar and toilets below deck.

The boat was built in 1917 and was originally a cargo boat for fish, coal, animals and building materials. Fishing for shrimp and capelin were later added. After many years of hard work, the boat was completely renovated from 2016 - 2019, making it a certified preservation project. In 2021, the work and dedication to preserving this boat was rewarded with the Tromsø Culture CommunityAward. Welcome to an amazing piece of Norwegian history!
