What people are saying about Nordland County

Our tour guide was amazing, very knowledgeable coming from marine biology background, and was very passionate about it too. The catamaran was stable, silent, and with glass all around so we could comfortably check out the surroundings without freezing. We could go out whenever we wanted and come in again. Next to us there was some other tours on small open boats and I felt really sorry just watching them they have frozen in these temperatures even with the uniforms on so I was grateful we found this tour instead. From an ecological perspective it was also better since in our tour they didn't feed the eagles just to get them closer but respected nature instead. We still saw them close to us throughout the tour and we also had goggles provided to see the ones who more far off too. The current didn't allow for an underwater drone on that day but the guide showed us some videos of it from other days. Only first and last 10min of tour are really shacky, rest of the time was great

The tour leads through the dreamlike landscapes of the Lofoten and offers impressions that can only be reached by boat. The guide speaks perfect and very understandable English. In addition, he knows what is important. He managed to get the sea eagles very close to the boat without feeling uncomfortable. Overall an outstanding experience.

Solo traveler verified! This was an absolute blast. During the winter months, be sure to bring your most warm gear to wear underneath their provided stuff; it was very very cold! Overall, amazing experience and highly recommend during your time in Lofoten!

Outstanding experience! Sea Eagles are AMAZING and the scenery is beautiful. They provide all the needed equipment to keep you dry and warm. Wear layers!

great experience! guides were knowledgeable and made sure everyone was safe. The eagles are beautiful!
