Small groups – Big experiences
Experience the famous midnight sun, scenic landscapes, impressive fjords and the arctic wildlife outside the spectacular island of Kvaløya. 2020 will be our fifteenth season and our knowledge about the area is your guarantee for a successful trip. We assure a unique and unforgettable experience where we share our passion for the area and its wildlife.
During the trip you will learn about the history, landscape, small villages, fjords, islands and the unique wildlife of Kvaløya. You will get the chance to see the characteristic island Håja, which gave its shape to the Arctic Cathedral in Tromsø. Ersfjord, Skamtind and Sommarøya are other highlights. We get close encounters with the local wildlife, which can include whales, seals, otters, sea eagles, puffins, and many other arctic bird species. We stop several times during the trip to enjoy the scenery and take photos. If you like, you could also be given the opportunity to try some fishing.
This is a fantastic experience for photography enthusiasts as we get extremely close to the elements. Throughout the trip we will take high quality photos and we are always glad to share them with you afterwards.
Staying safe and warm in the Arctic
We will start the trip with a safety briefing, and we ensure you dress properly for the conditions with suitable flotation suits, boots, hat and gloves. We run the trips with our 10,5m long Kloster Patrol charter boat, custom built for sightseeing and fishing trips. The boat provides a comfortable, stable, and seaworthy ride. It has a walkaround deck with 10 seats and offering great space for sightseeing and fishing. The heated wheelhouse is equipped with modern navigation electronics, 10 seats and a toilet. The boat is equipped with twin 300hp Yamaha engines. It has an unsinkable hull supplemented with flotation elements. Kloster Patrol boats are among the safest boats ever built in Europe and have passed tougher tests than any other boats in Norway.
