Cruise around the Tromsø island onboard the silent, electric and non-polluting ship Brim. As the gateway to the Arctic, Tromsø has attracted generations of explorers and innovators whose testament to history leave their marks on the town – both above and below the surface. Take in the atmospheric Arctic night and light in all its majesty with 360 degree uninhibited panoramas, both outside and in. In warmth and comfort, we cruise around Tromsø island, past snow-covered mountains, landmarks like the Arctic cathedral and through icy waters. We’ll launch an underwater drone and lights to discover the mysteries of the depths below. And as the darkness of the ocean reflects the stars above, if we’re lucky the Northern Lights may appear. Below the surface, you might discover both marine life and one of World War II’s pivotal events: the sinking of Germany’s largest warship Tirpitz in the icy waters outside Tromsø. Hear the story of British air raiders who bombed and sank this ship that Churchill called “the Beast”. Today 15,000 of the ship’s original 50,000 tonnes lay scattered just 10-15 metres below the surface at Håkøya south of Tromsø.You will be served Arctic flavors tasting platter during the trip and with that you can enjoy warm or cold local beverages that can be purchased on board.
