We simply loved it! We really enjoyed the scenery, being on the water around such nature is something we didn't experience before. Luckily we also caught three cods for the fish soup. The guides are very friendly, have everything under control and seem to know where to catch fish. Relaxing trip!

This tour was awesome - comfortable sail boat, beautiful scenery of the fjords, delicious soup (we caught one big-ish cod for it). We couldn’t see much of wildlife, but we got super lucky with the weather - it was not too cold or windy and a clear sky. Altogether, supported by our great guide and skipper Anton, this activity made our day. We liked it so much that booked a Northern lights tour on the same boat the very same day and had an amazing experience again. Highly recommend Pukka Travel and their sailing tours!

A lovely boat, well equipped and clean. Cannot be certain of the crew's names but I have in mind John & Max (could be totally wrong) but either way they were very friendly and nothing was a problem.

This trip did include fishing which my partner done but unfortunately no joy for anyone as I think a large fishing boat had got ahead of us.

I booked the trip more for my partner to experience as I have done one previously and seen orcas, had I been alone I probably would not have done it but was still nice to be out in open air and take in the views.

A very nice boat with warm and friendly staff apart from the warm and cozy cabin on the boat. The trampoline at the front of the boat (not for jumping) offered a nice vantage point for the cruise during good weather.

We managed to get a nice clear blue sky day as well as being in the middle of a snow-shower while on the fjord. Since we went outside of whale season, we did a bit of fishing which ended in a hearty fish soup cooked by James (I think). Both James and Dave were very helpful and insightful about the key places around the fjord and the local islands as well as providing novice fishing tips :-)

On land the Pukka Travels facilities were as expected but the check-in staff were welcoming and friendly and provided useful guidance regarding parking which was much appreciated.

Definately recommend.

We were in Norway for 11 days, and this was the highlight for me. Our Captain, Tobias was just incredible. So personable, courteous, and knowledgeable that he honestly felt like a friend and we didn’t want to have to leave. The boat itself is very nice. Clean, modern, sturdy, and even more importantly warm! We sat out on the deck in the warm body suits that are provided on the voyage out to take in all the sights. Once we got to the fishing location, 3 of us ended up reeling up 6 fish but only keeping 4. Tobias was very encouraging and helpful, making sure we had the right poles, lures and technique. He then cleaned the fish right on the spot and served us the fish soup which was so delicious. The best part, I wrote to the company and they actually gave me the recipe! The ride back inside the ship was filled with hot coco, soups and friendly conversations with fellow travelers. All in all it took about 4-5 hours and we were very pleased with everything. We even wanted to come back later in the week for the northern lights tour just to get that kind of experience again! I recommend this to anyone considering northern Norway and we will go again whenever we get back out there.

We had a fantastic trip sailing with pukka travels! It was a truly magical, freeing experience!

Our guides were helpful, kind and incredibly knowledgeable about not only the surroundings but the culture and the history of Tromsø- we certainly learned a lot!

The boat is gorgeous and has ‘trampolines’ on the front which were nets that you could sit on directly over the water. The snow covered mountains and tiny colourful houses speckled throughout the snow is a view I will never forget.

Also the fish stew was delicious!

Thank you for a wonderful trip we really, really enjoyed it!

My friend and me have had the most wonderful experience we could have imagined. We booked the "Classic Tromsø Winter Package" including the following activities:

1 Northern Lights workshop before/during tour
1 Northern Lights Sailing
1 Northern Lights Minibus Chase
1 Arctic Sail Safari
1 Snowshoe Hike

Sailing through the arctic ocean (if you're lucky having the northern lights above you're head) chasing the northern lights with a bus or hiking up a mountain in the middle of nowhere is literally one of the most amazing experiences we have ever had.
If you want to feel the absolut bliss about spending quality time in an incredible nature, you're looking at the exact right company here. The standard here is of best quality, the equipment you receive ranges from gloves to boots to arctic snowsuits etc.
But what made the experience so special was not the activities themselves but especially the people behind this company. They have warmly welcomed us and made us feel like we're part of them. They're all super friendly, open and very very accommodating. These people make you're journey unforgettable. We will definitely come back!

Thanks to Tome, Max, David, John and Charles who have made this unforgettable :)

We went on the arctic sailing safari and both hosts, Anthony and Jamie, were super friendly, accommodating and made the nicest fish soup! We all caught some big cod and saw some big eagles!
Would definitely recommend and will be back for sure!
