This company, 71 Nord, offers a number of exceptional tours. But, the one not to be missed is the King Crab Safari. You start off by donning warm, floatation wetsuits. Then, you board a sleek Zodiac boat for your 10 minutes ride over to the crab traps. After pulling up a trap, and grabbing a few king crabs (with photo opportunities galore), you head over to 71 Nord's private camp. There, you are escorted into a teepee, as a warm fire burns in the middle. Seated on furs, you watch as your crab catch is cooked and served to you. It's really a wonderful experience, and the professional guides of 71 Nord take you though everything with a high degree of safety and enjoyment. Make this trip one you try at least once in your life. The tour lasts about 4 hours.

Had a wonderful time taking the ATV Safari to the hilltop overlooking the harbor. Cold day, but the suits provided kept us warm. Guides were both at the front and back of the group so we could all stay together. Would have like more time to view some of the sights, but it was an enjoyable ride. Glad to have done this adventure.

Get ready for an adventure! Put on your suits, board the boat, and get ready to travel from the fjord out to the Barents Sea. Along the way you'll see puffins and other birds nesting on the high cliffs. Once out in the sea, Ojan will pull up the crab cages, pick out the 2 best crabs, and then speed back to his home so he can prepare them for you. While he is steaming them, you will wait in a warm and circular building with a fireplace in the middle and then prepare yourself to eat the most succulent, delicious crab legs you have ever had. We couldn't even finish all the crab. And this was served with hot bread and beer. An amazing experience!
