Boat ride to Trollfjorden in Lofoten

Hello there, was wondering if a boat ride/ sailboat or RIB boat tour to visit Trollfjorden in Lofoten is worth it? Its kind of expensive for 4 people so wanted to be sure before I book it.

Thanks Much!

Hurtigruten makes a nice photo stop at the entrance to the Troll Fjord. The Fjord is only 3 miles, rt. Hurtigruten offers an option small boat ride thru the Troll Fjord. If I recall correctly, it's one-way, you rejoin Hurtigruten at its next stop in the Lofoten. I would assume other cruises do too.
Weather poses a problem. What if you book way ahead & it's rainy day with low clouds?

Yes, worth it. Amazing impression.

Use RIB boats from Svolvær or Hurtgruten southbound - bus from Svolvær to Stokmarknes. embark as pedestrian and disembark at Svolvær.

Regular cruise ships are too big to drive into Trollfjord. Hurtigruten ships are smaller and drive into if not too much wind, turn on plate at fjord's end and drive out.

Thanks for the feedback! Will book RIB boats from Svolvær as we are staying near that place. Think it's cancelable 24 hrs before, just incase of bad weather.
