Before going to the boat I had a picture of a nice little boat with a hot tub on top of it, but boy was it so much more! First off all I was suprised of the size of the boat and with all it had with it. Everything was well organized and in order. We were out on a... More

We had to wait for the boat that was late, there were (in my opinion) to many people on board. the bathtub outside was NOT hot enough, we had to go in the sauna to heat up. Bathing in the sea was a good experience though. And then the food, a completely RAW bacalao, with no taste. we were very... More

A friend of ours that works on the boat suggested we go so we did and it was totally worth it! I had never heard of a spa boat but it such a great idea and very well set up. There is a hot tub, sauna, zen lounge and hammam all of which you can use at anytime and in... More

The Vulkana cruise is absolutely a must-do while in Tromsø! An amazing boat, where you can see the beautiful northern lights while relaxing in a hot tub. Great people who work there, and jummyjummy food :)

We had found this activity on TripAdvisor and we were not entirely clear on what it was, so we proceeded to call it the Crazy boat. This would turn out to be accurate. To start with we felt a little out of place as we were the only non-Norwegian-speaking people on the boat. But once we were out on the... More

I'm not sure if this is review of a restaurant or an attraction.... Either way it is execelent! The boat it self, the view, the food, the hospitality is all worth it. Bring your friends, your colleagues or your family and enjoy the icecold water, a nice warm sauna or some fishing. Highly recommended !

I came to Tromso to fulfill my fiancé's bucket list of seeing the northern light but Vulkana was my little treat. As I was reading the To Do List on trip advisor Vulkana caught my eye because it said you could jump off the ship and into the arctic sea. I'm always up for an adventure and what could be... More

We went out on a three-hour trip on the Vulkana as part of an itinerary arranged by our host, and it was undoubtedly the BEST part of our Norway trip. Our hosts on board were friendly and laidback, and we felt free to do whatever we wanted, from helping ourselves to beers, to relaxing on deck.. There's a hamam, a... More
