Boat tours in Tromsø

Norway has a long coastline and it is popular to travel along the country by boat. Tromsø island is surrounded by water which makes boat tours a popular activity, whether you choose to rent a kayak, seek adventures on a RIB boat, go fishing, or maybe you just want a seaside view of our city. 

Kayak and RIB in Tromsø

Bring your friends to Tromsø and explore our city from the seaside. Going on a kayak trip under the Midnight sun is a once in a lifetime experience, and exciting for both young and old. In Tromsø region there are several rivers and waters where you can rent kayaks and paddle peacefully around in the middle of nature. If you’re more of an adventure seeker and want some action, we recommend going on RIB tours around the islands surrounding Tromsø. Many of the RIB tours are also combined with wildlife spotting, or visiting cultural places along the coast. See all of our tours below. 

Go fishing

Fish your own lunch or dinner from the fjords surrounding Tromsø. Halibut, wolffish, haddock and mackerel are just some of the fish you will find in these waters. Our suppliers take you out day or evenings and are eager to teach you all they know about fishing. If you visit us during summer you will be able to go out on fishing boats under the Midnight sun and red skies, and if you visit during winter you might be lucky to get a glimpse of the Aurora. 
Salmon fishing in Målselva is a popular sport, both for locals and visitors from all over the world. They open for fishing in in June, but remember that you will need a fishing licence. 

Fjordcruise and sailing in Tromsø

Cruise the arctic fjords and try fishing, explore Arctic wildlife, or learn how to sail. Our suppliers offers a wide range of fjordcruise and sailing activities summer and winter. Watch the Northern Lights eating your dinner out at sea, or relaxing in a jacuzzi in the middle of the ocean. Learn more about Norwegian culture and life along the coast, or sail into the endless horizon of the Midnight sun during summer. You can go on short day trips, or choose longer trips over a number of days, seeing more of the Tromsø-region.
