After visiting the farm, we will go to the old fishing storage unit- The restaurant "Full Steam" and enjoy a cup of coffe.
As a local family surviving on fishing and farming thru 4 generations, we will welcome you, and give you athentic north Norwegian charm and hospitality.
In a Rib boat we will take you thru amazing scenery around the area, and tell you the history of Tromso. The wind in you hair, and the small fishing boats will give you a real insight into how the people have lived here.
We will also go by boat to the places where the battle ship Tirpitz was destroyed, Polstjerna- our old sealerwessel, the old Seaplane airport, and our whaling station. All now history, but the architecture can be seen from the boat.
When our boat has taken us back to the port, we will visit Full steam, a new resturant in Tromso located in a old traditional storage unit used by fishermen since 1902.
You will be served a warm cup of coffe, in a beautiful, old porcelain cup. Now you can sit back and dream away about of how hectic it must have been there in 1902 when the storage unit was buildt. A perfect ending to your tour, where we have taken you back in time.
