The best way to see northern lights, whales, fjords & arctic wildlife is offered on this ultimate overnight tour in Tromsø and out to Skjervøy. All of this will be experienced aboard your floating hotel, one of Pukka Travel’s cosy and comfy catamarans.
Tromsø is the place to be for northern lights. However, it doesn’t stop there! It has a plethora of attractions in petto for you and this tour covers them all! The tentative plan to make all of this work looks a bit more like this:
20:30 Access the lounge. Here you can take a break from your travels, charge your phone, camera and enjoy a complimentary coffee or tea with some snacks.
22:00 Time to board. You will sail out of Tromsø harbour onboard a comfortable catamaran under a starry sky. After getting accommodated in your cabin the sailing route will be explained together with the plan for the night and the coming day.
22:30 First chance to witness the northern lights. From the moment you reach the non light polluted areas the chase for the lights can start. You also have the chance to learn more about sailing and navigating your way through the Arctic.
23:30 Light homemade Norwegian evening meal is served. You can enjoy a cosy meal in the heated saloon while the guy keeps watch over the chances of seeing northern lights outside the window.
00:30 The green lady is dancing! Enjoy a last part of the evening either on the deck of our catamaran, on the comfortable nets, or where ever you may wish.
01:00 Your cabin is warm and the pillows are amazing. Get yourself comfortable in your cabin while the water touches the haul outside. The crew will take watches on deck as you sail towards the area where the whales are located.
07:30 Fresh coffee is brewing & breakfast is served. No better way to start your day in a private bay, right? The breakfast offers something for everyone and fresh coffee and tea is brewed.
09:30 Whale Safari is our most unique experience. Whale watching is on the schedule together with other wildlife such as eagles and lots of sea birds. It is a truly unique experience seeing orcas and humpback whales.
11:00 Learn how to navigate a sailing yacht in the fjords. Here you will get the chance of learning the basics of sailing and navigating a sailing boat. This is an educational and enjoyable moment to get your picture taken as captain of the boat or to ask the skipper about navigating in the far North.
12:30 Preparation of a warm meal. If the conditions are right you can have a go at catching your first fish and afterwards learning how to prepare a fresh fish. Afterwards the freshness can be tasted in a tasty traditional fish soup.
14:00-18:00 Fjord Cruise through Lyngen Alps. On the way back to Tromsø we will sail through the epic Arctic fjords of the Lyngen Alps. There are only a few places in the world with such vibrant wildlife and majestic surroundings. Here you will have plenty of time to enjoy the scenery of the Lyngen Alps on the 6 hour sail back home.
18:00/19:00 After a unique experience at sea with some unforgettable moments it is time to say goodbye to the crew and the boat. With a 2 minute walk back to the Base Camp, you can relax, pick up your luggage and get directions for further activities or your way back to your hotel in case you decide to stay for some more time in the beautiful Tromsø .
