    The excursion is not suitable for guests with back injuries.

Exclusively for guests on a Platinum fare, this exciting boat ride brings you on a tour of the coastline between the scenic island chains of Vesterålen and Lofoten.

Feel the wind in your hair and the spray on your face as we speed through the water, passing the dramatic scenery of Raftsundet on our way to the Trollfjord. This relatively small fjord is just 1.6 miles long and 110 yards wide at its entrance. Its steep mountain sides are dramatic and it is common to spot Sea Eagles here. Here, you’ll learn about the Battle of Trollfjord in 1890 between traditional open-boat fishermen and the privately-owned, steam-driven trawlers.

From the Trollfjord, we’ll continue to the island of Skrova before arriving in Svolvær. Skrova has two nicknames: One is ‘Photo Island’, given the permanent outdoor photo exhibits found throughout the island. The other is ‘Hawaii Island’, because of its sunny climate and impressive scenery.
