I came to Tromso to fulfill my fiancé's bucket list of seeing the northern light but Vulkana was my little treat. As I was reading the To Do List on trip advisor Vulkana caught my eye because it said you could jump off the ship and into the arctic sea. I'm always up for an adventure and what could be more adventurous than jumping into the arctic sea half naked in January. Vulkana did not disappoint. We signed up for the Laundry Day special which is held only on Saturdays. For 2 hours from 12pm - 2pm you get on the boat and enjoy the salt water hot tub, dry sauna, and the meditation room while the ship sails around Tromso. It was a good change of scenery literally and figuratively since it gave us view of Tromso from the sea. In the middle of the trip the ship anchors and you are given chance to jump into the arctic sea. The trick to staying alive in the 3 degree C water was to stay in the sauna as long as you could bear then run out and jump without hesitation. Few beers before the jump didn't hurt either. The trip ended with delicious fish soup and bread.
Few things to keep in mind. They do charge extra for robes and towel so bring your own. The beers were also very expensive. They also don't have the steam room open during the Laundry Day but they do have 30min massage you can purchase. If you need an activity to do during the day while waiting for the northern lights then give Vulkana a shot.
