This tour is conducted by Tromsø Friluftsenter. A tour that pays homage to Tromsø`s farming and fishing history, in a rib boat you will travel to an old farm and learn about the local culture.


After visiting the farm, we will go to the old fishing storage unit- The restaurant "Full Steam" and taste and smell the fish.

As a local family surviving on fishing and farming through 4 generations, we will welcome you to our home, and give you authentic north Norwegian charm and hospitality.

In a Rib boat we will quickly take you through amazing scenery out to our small community with 270 inhabitants. This village has a local fish factory that is 100 years old, and the fish racks and the small fishing boats will give you an insight into how the people have lived their lives here.

From there we will go to Risvika, our old arctic farm where fishing and farming was the way of survival. We will go ashore and take a stroll around and give you a glimpse of how the family has lived their lives, and how the culture has changed through the years. We will sit around the bonfire in a sami lavvo and enjoy a cup of coffee while the bonfire allows your mind to contemplate.

When our boat has taken us back to Tromsø we will now visit Full steam, a new restaurant in Tromsø located in an old traditional storage unit used by fishermen. This place sets the ambiance of what full steam is all about. While inside you can see, smell and taste the history of cod fishing in Tromsø. After the tour is finished you can choose if you want to sit down and explore more of the traditional food, Full Steam gives you a discount if you want to purchase a meal.
