Are you looking for a different kind of experience? Then you are definitely on the right course. On board the Hermes II, you can choose between everything from a simple boat trip to the full package, consisting of a party menu, entertainment, activities and whatever else you want. Together we will find the perfect programme for your experience on Hermes II.
We also offer overnight trips. Please contact us in good time before the dates you would like to book.
Number of participants: Max 18 / 10 for fine dining in the lounge below deck.
Meeting point: Hermes II departs from the floating pier by Kystens Hus at Stortorget. Please show up 10 minutes before departure.
Hermes II could be the setting that provides an unforgettable extra dimension for e.g. a company outing, a board meeting or a 40th anniversary. You can enjoy the peace and quiet on board this 100-year old beauty.
Tailor your trip
On deck, we can offer a buffet and simpler dining, or we can serve up to 10 people in the lounge below deck, from a single hot dish to an exclusive, multi-course tasting menu supplied by Mathallen, one of Tromsø’s best restaurants.
The lounge is also suitable for meetings and pleasant conversations, or as a warm and cosy place to get some heat. There is also a small bar and facilities for presentations and intimate musical performances.
The boat and its crew are available for hire for shorter or longer trips.
Hermes II has a capacity of 36 passengers on shorter trips.
We usually recommend a maximum of 25 people in order to get the best experience possible. We can also carry out overnight trips for up to 10 people.
Welcome on board
Hermes II is equipped with top-quality modern navigation and safety equipment. On board, you will meet highly qualified and experienced skippers and hosts with upgraded safety training. A trip with Hermes II should be a pleasant and safe experience for everyone.
You can wander around on deck and enjoy the atmosphere or relax on the seating. Blankets and seat mats are available when you want to warm up a bit. If it’s still a little too cold for you, we have thermal insulation suits you can borrow.
Below deck you will find a nice and warm lounge with seating, dining table, bunks, bar and toilets. There are also screens that show films about the boats the company owns. From dramatic scenes from deep-sea fishing in the Barents Sea to scenic trips in glorious sunshine with Hermes II. All the screens that the skipper has on the bridge can also be viewed down here. You can follow the boat’s course, observe where other boats are located, check the depth around the vessel and try to see if there are fish nearby.
We recommend eating a good meal before going on board. The serving concepts vary on the different trips. On the short trips we provide a range of selected local specialities. We also serve hot drinks and, if you like, you can purchase alcoholic drinks.
On a longer trip, we serve a simple meal and hot drinks on the trip to Finnkroken, while the return trip to Tromsø also includes a full lunch. Then you can enjoy a culinary experience with a delicious selection of known – and perhaps unknown – flavours from the best local food producers.
We plan the tailor-made trips in cooperation with you. There are many options, from a pure boat trip without food, to various servings on deck, to multi-course tasting menus in the lounge below deck. Contact us, and we will find a programme that suits your wishes and needs.
Tromsø lies approximately on the edge of the Arctic ice. It is cold here, but it is even colder out at sea and it’s more exposed to wind. We therefore recommend that you keep abreast of the weather forecast before your trip and dress accordingly.
WE ALSO OFFER
Finnkroken for groups
