Day tour from Tromsø

Northern Yachting

This tour is conducted by Northern Yachting.
Do you want to experience Tromsø from the city's best side - the sea? With Northern Yachting you can get up close to nature, history and northern Norwegian culture.
All trips to Northern Yachting always start with a safety brief. Guests get information about the trip; where we are going, what they can expect and should look for.
This unique journey around Tromsø takes place in a well-equipped catamaran sailboat, and you get up-close to the rich wildlife in and around the sea. Here you can enjoy the splashing sea and fresh air, while sailing with the sea birds.

Get to know the local history
While sailing with Northern Yachting, the local captain will guide you through local history. The location of the historic battleship Tirpitz is not far away, and you get, among other things, the opportunity to see where the ship ended its days.
You will get to know Tromsø from a new perspective, learn more about the city's rich history, while taking some impressive photos. The tour will normally head towards Balsfjord.
