Activity description

Explore the Arctic waters of northern Norway aboard a historic vessel while trying your hand at fishing and enjoying the scenery on this immersive 4.5-hour cruise! 

The Hermes II is a renowned Skandfer cutter that was originally built in 1917. Restored in 2019, this unique wooden ship has a fascinating history. It is also outfitted with modern navigation technology and safety equipment. Below the deck, you will find comfortable seating as well as a heated lounge with a fully licensed bar where you can purchase local food and beverages. 

With an experienced skipper at the helm, you'll be provided with all of the necessary fishing equipment for an adventure out on the water! Should luck be on your side, you'll be served your cooked catch with butter and flatbread in a traditional Norwegian style. In addition, you'll also be offered warm beverages throughout the tour. 

Don't miss out on this cruise that combines the thrill of fishing with the serenity of the open water!
