Tour Description

North Cape Sightseeing


Each of our guided North Cape Sightseeing tours is unique.

We show you our home as we know it and love it.

Let us take you on a scenic ride across Magerøya Island, here at the far North of Norway. Enjoy the beautiful landscape and numerous stops along the way, with the final destination: North Cape.

Each of our trips is different, we do not follow a strict itinerary, we change the sequence of our stops and adjust to the weather conditions as well as to our guests.

For us, it is all about your experience. Period.

Hurtig Special

"The No-Rush Tour"
Based on The Original - Optimized for Travelers who arrive by Hurtigruten

Tour Description

 

Based on the many requests we have received lately, Blue Puffin is now offering a shorter version of our original North Cape Sightseeing tour especially catered to Hurtigruten guests.

This is for their North-bound journey, with arrival to Honningsvåg at 10:55 a.m. and departure time at 02:30 p.m.

How does it work?

We prefer to be clear to avoid misunderstandings.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to join a 4-hour tour, if your ship is in town for only 3:35 hours… This is why we have created Hurtig Special!

Sorry to say, but we need to cut parts of the original itinerary – there is no way around it.

We chose to leave out the King Crab Show, because there is simply no time.

We also chose to stay at North Cape shorter than on our regular North Cape Sightseeing tours, which is the only way to still visit Kamøvvær, the most picturesque fishing village on our island. We believe this is still very much within reason. On our regular departures, we recommend to watch the panorama movie. It is about 15 minutes long. By not watching it, you gain some precious time.

Departure

11:10 a.m. (directly at the Hurtigruten pier)

Back at the ship

02:10 p.m.

Tromsø Tour "Why we live here..."

Tour Description

Tromsø Tour "Why we live here..."


Designing this tour, we asked ourselves, "What makes Tromsø special?"

Quickly, we indulged in a funny conversation. "Is it the snow-covered mountains, the deep, rich fjords cutting far inland and/ or unspoiled nature right in our backyards?"

What about, "You can get a tan, way past midnight during the summer (the time of the Midnight Sun)?" – or rather, "Our kids play hide-and-seek under the light cone of their headlamps during mørketiden (the dark time of the year)?" That's right. Arctic kids are tough! The brave ones, turn their headlamps off during hide-and-seek, though. They cope with all sorts of weather and play outside a lot. In kindergarten, even during a snow storm, while eating icicles non–stop!!...

The answers may be as diverse as the people around our table on that day – maybe as diverse as all the inhabitants of Tromsø. Soon, we discovered that our question essentially evolved to, "Why do we live here?"

Since 2022, our Tromsø Tour follows the clear and well-regarded concept of our Original North Cape Sightseeing Tour. Each of our guided tours in Tromsø is unique.

Be warned! This tour does not follow a strict itinerary. This tour might not be the right choice for you, if you are seeking a classical tour that takes you from one touristic highlight straight to the next one.

Instead, join your guide as she (or he) takes you to her/ his favorite places. Some in town, some outside, in the countryside. We leave that entirely up to your guide...

And yes, if you are curious, you may ask your guide yourself, "Why do you live here?"

Hi Sebastian
Just to say thanks for a second day of enjoyment with Michael and driver Steve after your trip yesterday to the North Cape region. Spectacular scenery and contrasts as we learned of more Norwegian lives and experiences. I will put something on social media like Trip advisor, etc later but just wanted to say a big thanks for all the organisation.
Now sailing
Best wishes

Tour Description of our Northern Lights in Focus Tour in Tromsø

Northern Lights in Focus Tour in Tromsø


Join us on our search for the fascinating Northern Lights.

Observing this natural phenomenon with the naked eye, as well as in the focus of your camera, is truly a particularly impressive experience.

You may be asking yourself: “Why do we actually have to look for the Northern Lights? I thought Auroras would be visible in the skies, all over the Arctic, in winter.

It's not that simple after all. Join us on our quest and find out what makes the difference!

Join our tour to one of the numerous locations we have explored in advance, to observe the Northern Lights in the best possible way. We are flexible, and we know our way around here.

Our committed, English- and German-speaking and, above all, local guides lead our Northern Lights in Focus Tour in small groups with a maximum of 15 participants per group.

Let the tour begin! We head North, South, East, or West, depending on where the conditions are most favorable on the day of your tour. In particular, throughout our tour, we take into account the locally varying weather conditions, which are often slightly different behind every mountain and behind every fjord. Each of our tours takes you out, into nature. We go, where it is dark. Search with us for a sky free of light pollution, and as free of clouds as possible.

Strictly speaking, we are not looking for the Northern Lights, but we are looking with you for the place where the probability of seeing the Northern Lights is greatest. As a general rule of thumb, you have the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights where you can see the stars. It is precisely this (magical) place – in the middle of nowhere – that we set out to look for, together with you – and to find it!

Our local knowledge, our understanding of wind and weather, and our flexibility in choosing the best location are key to your experience, increasing your chance of seeing the Northern Lights in their full glory many times over.

Arrived at our destination – maybe somewhere, along a lonely shore of a hidden fjord – we make ourselves comfortable around the campfire, snuggle up in warm thermal overalls and wait patiently for the show to begin. We serve homemade soup, homemade cookies, hot chocolate and tea.


Photos! … Oh, yeah! We pay special attention to photography on our Northern Lights in Focus Tour. Our selected guides are also professional photographers. During this tour, your guide will take numerous photos with her/ his professional photo equipment, including portraits of each of our guests – of course, ideally with the Northern Lights in the background. Our guides will be happy to allow you to look over their shoulders and advise you on choosing the right setting for your photo camera. After the tour, we will send you the best pictures, which your guide selects according to his professional standards, in medium resolution, as a souvenir.


Our Northern Lights in Focus Tour starts right at the port. At the end of the tour, we will, of course, bring you back to the port.

The fine print:
Natural phenomena are not made to order. We take our time, are familiar with the area and flexible. Despite all preparations and our commitment, we cannot guarantee that you will see the Northern Lights during our tour.

Exception – The Sunset & Northern Lights Show (March 25, 2023)
Exception – The Sunset & Northern Lights Show:
Our tour on the evening of March 25, 2023, will be carried out in 5 hours. Since the AIDAmar is in the port of Tromsø for a relatively short time on this day, we adjust our tour accordingly. This means that you will be back on board in good time on this tour as well.

Due to this set time frame, it is advisable that, as a precaution, you do not focus this tour solely on observing the northern lights, but that you better approach this tour with the following attitude: Look forward to a nice evening. We head out in the last light of the day, feverishly awaiting the sunset, sitting comfortably together around the campfire – and with a bit of luck having an option to see the Northern Lights that day. Of course, we hope for a spectacular Northern Lights show this evening as well. We have a time window of about 2 – 3 hours. So, the chances of observing the Northern Lights are actually quite real. Maybe it is simply a matter of having the right attitude, to truly enjoy this evening tour! ;-)


 

Meeting Point

Tromsø has two wharves/ quays for cruise ships, right in the city center and Breivika. Your guide will pick you up right at the port. At the end of the tour, we will, of course, take you back to the port.
Detailed information will be provided according to where your ship docks and where your tour starts.

 

Restroom Stops

Our tour takes you out, info nature, to observe the Northern Lights at its best. Restroom stops are possible at the beginning of the tour and towards the end of the tour (close to the city). In between, Mother Nature calls. Exceptions are possible, depending on the exact destination on the day of the tour. However, please do not assume this and prepare yourself accordingly.

Tromsø - Northern Lights in Focus

Tour Description

Northern Lights in Focus Tour in Tromsø


Join us on our search for the fascinating Northern Lights.

Observing this natural phenomenon with the naked eye, as well as in the focus of your camera, is truly a particularly impressive experience.

You may be asking yourself: “Why do we actually have to look for the Northern Lights? I thought Auroras would be visible in the skies, all over the Arctic, in winter.

It's not that simple after all. Join us on our quest and find out what makes the difference!

Join our tour to one of the numerous locations we have explored in advance, to observe the Northern Lights in the best possible way. We are flexible, and we know our way around here.

Our committed, English- and German-speaking and, above all, local guides lead our Northern Lights in Focus Tour in small groups with a maximum of 15 participants per group.

Let the tour begin! We head North, South, East, or West, depending on where the conditions are most favorable on the day of your tour. In particular, throughout our tour, we take into account the locally varying weather conditions, which are often slightly different behind every mountain and behind every fjord. Each of our tours takes you out, into nature. We go, where it is dark. Search with us for a sky free of light pollution, and as free of clouds as possible.

Strictly speaking, we are not looking for the Northern Lights, but we are looking with you for the place where the probability of seeing the Northern Lights is greatest. As a general rule of thumb, you have the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights where you can see the stars. It is precisely this (magical) place – in the middle of nowhere – that we set out to look for, together with you – and to find it!

Our local knowledge, our understanding of wind and weather, and our flexibility in choosing the best location are key to your experience, increasing your chance of seeing the Northern Lights in their full glory many times over.

Arrived at our destination – maybe somewhere, along a lonely shore of a hidden fjord – we make ourselves comfortable around the campfire, snuggle up in warm thermal overalls and wait patiently for the show to begin. We serve homemade soup, homemade biscuits, hot chocolate and tea.
Photos! … Oh, yeah! We pay special attention to photography on our Northern Lights in Focus Tour. Our selected guides are also professional photographers. During this tour, your guide will take numerous photos with her/ his professional photo equipment, including portraits of each of our guests – of course, ideally with the Northern Lights in the background.

After the tour, we will send you the best pictures, which your guide selects according to his professional standards, in medium resolution, as a souvenir.

Tour Guides

The difference between a shuttle bus and our North Cape Sightseeing tour is your guide.

Image

Monika Dąbkowska


Monika is the founder and owner of Blue Puffin.

Monika was born and raised in Gdańsk, Poland. She first came to Northern Norway in 2003 as a student of Scandinavian Studies, in which she has a masters degree.

Her work experience ranges from guiding tours through being a language school manager, a Norwegian teacher, musher, while working with huskies and dog sleds to being a full-time mom. As you can see, it never got boring... oh, yeah, and she has a professional bus driver's license, too, and worked as a bus driver for local bus companies. Monika also tried having "a real job" when living and working in Oslo, but learned that that's just not quite her thing and moved back North.

Whenever not working, Monika is found someplace all over the planet. Monika is a dedicated traveler, as so to say. Her extensive journeys have brought her to all continents (except Antarctica - no reindeer there, though) and many would be jealous about all the places she has been to.

Monika started Blue Puffin in 2018. She had been the manager for a local tour operator for three years before that and had been in charge of developing and running North Cape Sightseeing tours. After this company decided to not longer continue business, Monika took over the concept in mutual agreement and continued the same concept she had originally developed. ... Blue Puffin was born - same tour, just under a different "legal" name.

Monika is fluent in Polish, English and Norwegian and speaks "some" German as well as "un poquito" Spanish.

 

Sebastian Borgwardt


Sebastian is Monika's partner.

Sebastian grew up in Leipzig, Germany. After finishing school, he bought a plane ticket and went off to discover the world. His journey, by bicycle, brought him to the End of the World, where he found his base camp in Southern Patagonia, Chile.

He has been working as a tour operator, specializing in adventure and nature travel in Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, Chile and Argentina for 17 years. Sebastian also owned a hostel in Punta Arenas, Chile.

Besides using his local knowledge in the production of several TV documentaries and commercials, Sebastian also enjoyed the opportunity to work with environment protection projects. Working close to nature for most of his life has resulted in his awareness of environmental issues and led to his most important projects together with National Geographic Photographer, Maria Stenzel, and the re-known conservationists Douglas Tompkins and Kristine McDivitt Tompkins. The latter led to the establishment of the first trekking trail in the (now not anymore) future Patagonia National Park, of which he was in charge. With pride, Sebastian sees this accomplishment as the personal highlight of his career and a small, yet very real step in long-term environment protection.

For Blue Puffin, he guides many North Cape Sightseeing tours, ties the strings in the back office and is in charge of international marketing, which pretty much means, he surfs the web a lot...

Sebastian is fluent in German, English and Spanish, gets along in French and Norwegian.

 

Kathi Goller

Kathi Goller

Kathi is our "tunnel digger" and also one of the most experienced guides at the North Cape.

She knows her mountains from her childhood home in Tirol, but she soon learned that Norway offers more than that: fjords! - hard to find in Austria!... ;-)

Kathi first came to Norway in 1999 and quickly found a new home in the beautiful, rugged North. She has been living and guiding tours here on and off since 2004.

Kathi studied geography/ cartography and actually does work for a tunnel construction company full time. Every year, she comes back to Magerøya Island to guide a few of our North Cape Sightseeing tours.

In her free time, she likes to get lost in a thick jungle in Surinam or some remote mountains in Kazakhstan - places well off the beaten track.

Kathi is fluent in German, English, Norwegian and Spanish and as a far-traveled adventurer juggles with a few more languages on top of it.
Anita Holmgren

Anita Holmgren

Anita is the youngest member of our international guide team. She is a full-blooded Magerøyan, a true North Cape girl, as so to say. She grew up in this harsh yet friendly corner of the world and probably knows all and each reindeer by name! :-)

Anita is currently studying marine biology at the University of Trondheim, but comes home during the summer to either help at her parents' family-run business "Nordkapp Camping" (www.nordkappcamping.no) or to show off her land to our guests as a guide of our North Cape Sightseeing tours.

Anita is also a passionate singer and actress. Whenever she finds time, she enjoys performing at our friends' at Perleporten Kulturhus for the "Our Northermost Life" theater show. Highly recommended! www.perleportenkulturhus.no, performance in English.

Anita speaks Norwegian, English and some German.
Michelle Ernst

Michelle Ernst

Michelle grew up in a small town in between grapes in the famous German wine region Rheingau.

After completing her studies in hotel management, she worked on a cruise ship on the Rhine river. Later, she gained experience working for different airlines in different fields, including the lost luggage department at the Frankfurt airport - imagine: most people Michelle met there were probably not in the best of all moods, as you can imagine...

In 2003, Michelle settled over to Patagonia, Chile's wild South, where she worked as a guide, including extended, multi-adventure and bus tours throughout the country. This is also, where Michelle first met Sebastian around 15 years ago. They worked together in several occasions.

Michelle is strengthening our team at North Cape from summer 2019, before searching for the next summer in South America.

Michelle is fluent in her native German in addition to English and Spanish.
