Northern Lights Cruise on electric schooner Opal

Experience the arctic night and northern lights on the award winning electric sailing ship, Opal.

Experiencing the Northern lights from a ship is a truly magnificent sight. Opal is comfortable inside and out. She provides a silent and stable way of travelling, where you can comfortably enjoy the spacious deck and cozy interior. We will serve hot drinks and a light dinner.

Schooner Opal was restored as a traditional two-mast schooner from the remains of an old oak fishing boat. In 2015 she was retro-fitted with an electric engine. Combining this traditional mode of transport with new technology, and magnificent wildlife gives you an experience you will never forget. You can read more about Opal here.

This trip takes you sailing out of the beautiful Kaldfjorden. If the weather allows it you can take part in hoisting the sails.

Our crew is highly skilled and professional with extensive knowledge about whales and the arctic wildlife. If we encounter whales we follow the strict Whale Watching Guidelines developed by Visit Tromsø.

Don’t forget to bring a camera, warm footwear, hat and gloves.
