Discover Tromsø, Norway and its spectacular surroundings aboard the renowned historic vessel, Hermes II! During this year-round tour, you'll take in the sights, relax, and learn more about the ship's fascinating story!

Hermes II is a Skandfer cutter that was built in 1917 and is one of three such vessels that still exist. While this unique wooden ship has a captivating history, it is also outfitted with the latest in navigation technology and safety equipment. 

Throughout the 2.5-hour cruise, you can enjoy the views of the snowcapped fjords and local wildlife from the deck or head below, where you'll find comfortable seating and the Hermes II's fully licensed restaurant and bar, which offers a variety of snacks and beverages.
