MS Vulkana is the result of a dream and a wild idea between friends. The owners of the boat share a passion for the beautiful nature in Northern Norway, sauna and bathing as well as excellent food. Together with the respected Finish architect; Sami Rintala, they transformed what once was a old worn out fishing vessel into a adventure boat, inspired by bathing cultures around the world.

The Vulkana gives you a unique way to access the majestic coastal area of Northern Norway in a comfortable setting. We focus on high quality food with seasonal and local ingredients, comfortable cabins, service minded crew, cleanliness and a low key but still exclusive feeling.

Vulkana has taken us in to the fjords and down the coast; bathing, skiing, hunting, fishing, eating, drinking and enjoying life in the sauna, hot-tub og Hamam under the midnight sun and the northern lights. Vulkana is a place for activity and energy as well as an oasis for tranquility and contemplation.

Welcome on board for your adventure

I had emailed Vulkana several weeks before our trip to enquire about the drop in spa and was told it would only be open on one day of our trip. This was perfect as it was our last day and we were looking forward to a little relaxation on-board before going home. I had informed Vulkana we would be coming... More

Dear Richard! Thank you for your comment! We are truly sorry you came to the Vulkana only to find out we were not available that Sunday due to a charter arrangement on board! We totally understand the misunderstanding, as you were told earlier this is a offer you don´t need to make a reservation for. The idea is that this... More

Excellent experience! Thoroughly enjoyed sitting in a hot tub on a deck surrounded with snow, sauna with window views of the stunning fjord scenery and taking a quick plunge in the Arctic waters! The fish stew (minus the fish for me) was prepared as we sailed and was truly a delicious and very filling meal. Highly recommend this very unique,... More

The Vulkana is a converted fishing boat, with a hot tub on deck (heated by a wood-burning stove) and a sauna and Turkish bath below. The sauna has windows so you can watch the scenery as you sweat. The whaling watching tour gave us great views of orcas after a cruise of about 1.5 hours north from Tromsø. On the... More

The Vulcana experience + whale watching was absolutely fantastic. Everything worked perfectly well, the weather, the hot tub, the breathtaking scenery, the saunas, the fabulous lunch with very tasty soup and the dessert you can dream of, a very friendly and professional crew, and, on top of it all, loads of "playful" orkas, kind enough to swim pretty close to...

We were in Tromso over a Sunday and didn't realize that almost everything is closed on that day. Thankfully we planned on visiting the Vulkana and loved our time there. The whole experience is so easy, from popping on and getting a tour to enjoying the first dip in the hot tub. My only regret is not hopping in the... More

We were a group of 7 and we booked a private trip with this boath. We have chosen the 3 hours spa and lunch cruise and we enjoyed the saltwater hot tub, the wood fired sauna with a panoramic window and the lounge. The team is young and great and the fish soup is really tasty. I highly recommend this... More
