trollfjord cruise




This five-hour tour is a scenic luxury cruise to Trollfjord, the most magical and iconic fjord in the Lofoten Islands. The cruising route is spectacular due to its steep-sided mountains, waterfalls, white sand beaches, teel blue water, plentiful eagles, occasional whale and dolphin sightings, and absence of roads. Remote areas, like Trollfjord, are only accessible by boat which ensures this wild and magic place can be preserved for years to come. ​


With only 12 guests on a 100 foot sailing yacht, you can admire the scenery in a slow, quiet and relaxed atmosphere. With plenty of space and time, you can sit inside or outside, walk around, have coffee, take photos, lay down with pillows and blankets, look for wildlife through binoculars, and upgrade your tour to include the outdoor hot tub to experience ultimate scenic luxury. 


Learn about the history & culture of the local sites from the onboard guide, or just enjoy the peace and quiet of the nature that surrounds you.  A traditional slow-cooked reindeer soup with fresh bread will be served on the return cruise. ​


This is a great activity for small groups, families or couples who want to experience both nature, local cuisine & exclusive service on a luxury sailing yacht, while getting a chance to go to one of the most unique fjords in the Lofoten Islands.

We depart Svolvær harbor, the main town of the Lofoten Islands. As we cruise Lofoten and out to Vestfjorden, watch for orca, dolphins and minke whales. Once inside the inlet of Raftsundet, you’ll feel the immensity of the surrounding landscape. This 25 km strait connects the Vestfjorden in the south to the Hadselfjorden in the north. As we set our course to Trollfjord, you might find yourself in awe. Trollfjord is a very narrow fjord, just 100m wide at its opening. It is also a short fjord, just 1km long. With towering 1000m mountains rising straight up from the sea, the dramatic landscape will have you at a loss for words. Once through the narrow opening, the fjord opens up providing 360 degrees views. Depending on the time of the year, this stunning fjord may be fringed with snow-capped mountains, awash with sunlight and waterfalls or even blanketed with Northern lights. Sit back in the hot tub or top deck lounge, take a deep breath and enjoy the scenery and silence. Your local guides will share the history and culture of the local sites as you pass by. Northern Norway, known as Nord Norge, has a unique history - a special combination of geology, 10,000+ years of human inhabitants blending Norse and Sami culture. This is what sets this region apart from the rest of Norway. On our peaceful and silent fjord cruise, you’ll also have the opportunity to taste a traditional slow-cooked reindeer soup. The return cruise is casual with time for eating, soaking in the sights and photography. As your Lofoten adventure comes to a close, we slide back into the Svolvær harbor. You can now say you’ve visited Lofoten and fully experienced Trollfjord, one of the best places in Lofoten.

Frequently asked questions about this tour

How long is this tour?

This Cruise is about 5 hours long. It depends on the weather, the wildlife sightings, the wind and the current. We prefer to do a slower tour so you have time to internalize the experience and take photos, watch the wildlife and scenery, and just relax in nature. ​


Is there a minimum number of participants for the tour?

Yes, we have a minimum of 6 guests for our tours. We always strive to do a Trollfjord Cruise each day within the season, but if there are too few people booked, we will reschedule your tour to another day or provide you with a full refund. We cancel because it is both financially and ecologically unsustainable to do a cruise with groups any smaller. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility. ​


What happens if it is raining all day?

Our Cruise will continue rain or shine. If the weather conditions are unsafe (high winds or storms), we will cancel the tour and either reschedule or provide a full refund. Sailing Yacht Stella Oceana, our ship, has warm indoor spaces so you can opt to stay warm and dry. On rainy days, the clouds hang low in Trollfjorden which gives the fjord a mysterious and dramatic feeling. The storytelling is at its finest on a grey, foggy day. ​ If you wear waterproof clothing, you'll easily be able to enjoy the whole tour outside.


What food and drinks are available?

Coffee, tea, water, hot chocolate and cookies are included. A reindeer soup with local root vegetables and fresh bread will be served for lunch. A soup that suits your dietary restrictions can be prepared if notified in advance. No other beverages or food are available for purchase onboard. Alcohol is not allowed to be brought onboard.


What wildlife/animals will I see?

You never know what you might encounter in the sea, but some common wild animals that we see are dolphins, orca, minke whales, white-tailed eagles, puffins, migrating birds from all over the world and arctic birds. ​


Will I get seasick and what if I need medical attention?

We can't guarantee that you won't get seasick, but most people don't experience this discomfort because the boat is so stable.  However, in the small chance that you do get seasick, the crew has a lot of experience and can help you so you can enjoy your trip.  Northern Norway tends to seem remote and isolated, however, we will always be sailing along the coast where help is never far away.  There are local rescue ships and the Norwegian Coast Guard is always operating throughout the entire coast.
