Operator's Itinerary

Ever wanted to explore the high Arctic Norwegian fjords, observing orcas as they feed under the pink winter skies, chasing the Northern Lights, and tasting Scandinavian whisky?

We've put together a one-of-a-kind trip with special guest trip leader Tashi Wangchuk Tenzing Sherpa - three time summiter of Mount Everest, motivational speaker, and wildly interesting guy who also happens to be the grandson of the first sherpa to summit Everest.

The trip begins in Oslo visiting some great local spots, later heading up to Tromsø where you'll step on the ship for seven days during which you'll visit the world's northern-most whisky distillery, take a night hike over an idyllic Norwegian island (hopefully under the Northern Lights!) and explore an abandoned NATO base, among various other adventures we have planned.

On the second last day, after disembarking the Kinfish, you'll step on board a "spa boat" for a final day of luxury topped off with a 5-star meal of local ingredients and then relax in a beautiful hotel room right next to the Tromsø harbour.

About The Ship

  • A great illustration of how perfect this little ship is for exploring the ice is that she was originally a research and rescue ship, saving 17 vessels from total loss during her service.
  • Ice Class 1A
  • She has just 12 passenger capacity and can reach places that larger ships cannot go.
  • Facilities include two lounges and an open bridge and there are two zodiacs available for landings.

This little ship has such incredible character and being so small, she really gives an exclusive expedition experience.
