fjord cruise tromso




This 5-hour polar fjord cruise provides the opportunity to see arctic landscapes, historical sites, and wildlife such as seals, dolphins and eagles in a comfortable, relaxed and luxurious atmosphere.


Enjoy personalized service, guiding and a traditional local meal of reindeer soup. Snuggle up with wool blankets amongst the beautiful arctic scenery and upgrade your tour to stay nice and warm in the hot tub on the exterior deck. ​If you're up for it, you can take the polar plunge and jump in the ocean and go back in the hot tub.


Cruising through ice, seeing the Tirpitz shipwreck or decommissioned submarine base is dependent on the weather, but one thing is for sure, the phenomenal landscape scenery will not disappoint.  What is unique about going on a fjord cruise aboard Stella Oceana is that you can enjoy the warmth and luxury of the spacious interior saloon, relax with your feet up like you're lounging in your own living room with blankets and pillows, read a coffee table book, take a nap, play cards, sip hot drinks, eat lunch, chat with your crew or fellow worldly travelers, look out the windows right above the waterline and go outside when you feel like being part of the outdoor scenery. 

This is a great option for small groups, families or couples who want to see cruise the arctic fjords in a small group tour, on a safe, unique and luxurious sailing yacht.

We depart Tromsø harbor, the main town of Northern Norway. As we sail out to Ballsfjorden, watch for porpoises, common eiders and sea eagles as you sit snuggled under cozy blankets with a mug of hot chocolate. If there is fresh snow on the deck and you’re feeling inspired, build a snowman on the deck and pose for photos! Depending on the weather and tides, you may sail past the Tirpitz shipwreck, cruise through ice floes, or see Olavsvern, a former Royal Norwegian Navy base. This Cold War-era base is an immense feat of engineering; 900 meters into the mountain exists an entire military base including; housing space, offices, storage and even a submarine dry dock! Your local guides will share the history and culture of the local sites as you cruise by. On most cruises, we sail deeper into the fjords where there's a chance to see a frozen fjord that is fed by many freshwater rivers and it is this freshwater that floats on top of the salty seawater, and freezes. It is unusual for fjords to freeze, since they are usually entirely salt water but here, the locals have adapted to this frozen fjord. We’ll sail in as far as we can, but we don’t want to break up too much ice. Although our hull is ice-class, it is important to respect the locals who call this palace home. They use the ice for ice fishing and if we break it apart, it becomes very unsafe for them to go fishing. Sit back in the top deck lounge, take a deep breath and enjoy the scenery and silence. You’ll also have the opportunity to taste a traditional slow-cooked reindeer soup. Join us in the warm saloon for a hearty lunch of soup, fresh bread, cookies, coffee and tea. The return cruise is casual with time for sipping hot drinks, taking in the sights and incredible photo opportunities. If you’ve upgraded your cruise to include the hot tub, now is the time to soak! Watch the beautiful fjord slip by in the winter light as you sit soaking in the deck top hot tub. As your polar fjord cruise comes to a close, admire the skyline of Tromsø in the lingering sunset light as we approach. We’ll slide back into the harbor in time for you to enjoy your evening in town.
