What people are saying about Nordland County

Felt very safe with the captain and the boat trip out to Trollfjorden. Nice to hear the guide tell about the culture and events up here. Seeing the eagles was the highlight of the whole holiday I want to repeat the safari more times. Good clothes did not freeze were lent out Top experience

Wonderful trip to the Trollfjord on a modern vessel. We enjoyed amazing views on the mountains and the fjord. We had a little stop and watched a live stream from an underwater drone, the crew was super friendly, ready to help and to provide information. An absolute recommendation.

Great tour! The weather was perfect - blue skies and sunshine, our guide was very nice, answered a lot of questions about the sea eagles and fjords and showed us some great spots. Definitely a highlight!

Saw at least 20 sea eagles! They are fed a little, not too much, justifiable with nature. Beautiful scenery, great fjords and cool fast boat.

Great experience, great guide! Despite language difficulties on our part, we had a lot of fun on this tour! We actually caught fish !!!
