Sea Eagle Safari in Trollfjorden – Havila excursion

Trollfjord Jagged Mountains Lofoten

On this Sea Eagle safari, take a boat trip on a passenger boat, bringing you close to nature and wildlife in the magical Trollfjord. The hope is to encounter the majestic sea eagle in the bright summer evening.

This is an optional excursion which you can add to your Havila cruise booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The excursion will appear during the cruise booking process, with prices and details.

Havila Trollfjord

Havila ship sailing into the spectacular Trollfjord

The excursion is suitable for most people, but disembarkation from the Havila Voyages ship to the tour boat takes place in the open sea.

The white-tailed sea eagle has a wingspan of almost 2.5 metres and is Northern Europe’s largest bird of prey. See this giant with characteristic “fingers” on the outer wings and bright yellow, sharp claws sweep over you in stunning surroundings.

The Trollfjord is both majestic and mighty with pointed peaks and steep mountain sides that are worn smooth by regular winter landslides. You can only get here by boat.

The violence of nature also gives rise to dramatic stories from vibrant communities and displaced clusters of houses. Once upon a time smaller, traditional fishing boats fought against new, steam-driven fishing boats in a battle for cod in what has been named the Trollfjord Battle. On this excursion, you make a peaceful mission to the fjord on a boat with a large outdoor area that enables you to get close to eagles and nature.

What our customers say:

  • On behalf of the group I would like to thank you and your colleagues for organizing our wonderful tour of Norway. Everything went very well including the weather, which was spectacular. We enjoyed all the hotels, the central locations you chose and the amenities, especially the lavish breakfasts. Three extra days in Oslo allowed us to tour the city at our leisure and to enjoy more of the important sights including the newly opened National Museum. The Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing and made much easier by using your recommended porterage service between hotels in Oslo and Bergen. Both the train journeys and the boat trip were spectacular, and combined with a night in the beautiful Kviknes Hotel made for an unforgettable two days. We were very impressed by the Hurtigruten cruise, particularly the way they combined a working ship with a cruise ship, the comfortable accommodations, the food and service. It was fascinating to visit all the various ports, islands and fjords and the two included tours were excellent and informative. In the end we were glad to have the extra night in Kirkenes, to visit their lovely museum and take a trip to the Russian border. It was a good way to end the tour. Again, thank for staying with us through 2 years of pandemic postponements and changes. We certainly will recommend Fjord Travel in the future.

Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all. I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!
