What people are saying about Skjervøya

Absolutely recommended and one of the best tours we did in Tromso. The bus driver took us early morning to the whale watch and he was super friendly and helpful. Then on the whale watch everybody was very receptive and welcoming and we saw so many whales plus the view from the surroundings was fantastic! And then driving all the way to the lavvos and the team in there couldn’t be better! Food was delicious, we saw the aurora and they were so nice that they even took photos of us as we had no proper cameras. After that a lovely bonfire at the beach with thermal suits provided and a nice cup of tea and muffins. Breakfast next day was the best ever! The whole team was so fantastic and we would go back again for sure. Thank you!

Magnificent, the captain and his assistants took the time to explain to us what we were going to do, made us feel at ease. The crew are warm, we really had a good time. Seeing the whales as well as the orcas was amazing.

Very impressive! And absolutely recommendable. Our guide brought us very close to the whales and the whole team was super competent, everyone made sure that they were all dressed safely and warmly.

Great once of a lifetime experience! Firstly to see the whales, but also the fjords beautiful nature! This company offers the longest time to be around the whales.
