On this trip you get the chance to get up close and personal with some mighty sea eagles and get captivated by the Trollfjord.

The trip starts from the quayside in Svolvær, and takes you through Raftsundet before we ride through the narrow entrance to the Trollfjord (Trollfjorden) inviting you to explore one of the most scenic landscapes in the Lofoten Islands.

A large population of sea eagles inhabit Raftsundet, and one of the greatest thrills of this trip, is when a white-tailed eagle circles just a few meters above your head. With a wingspan of over 2,5 meters ( 82 ft), these majestic birds are known for being the largest bird of prey in Norway.

During the trip you will also get to know some of the history of the places you are passing. This includes some places that played a significant role during the Viking Age.

From an open RIB boat you get close to the elements. Your captain has a high focus on safety and will ensure that you have a comfortable trip.

This trip is one for the memory books - both in terms of fun and beauty!
