Whale Watching Safari & Fjord Cruise
Are you ready for an experience of a lifetime? Join us on this Whale Safari & Fjord Cruise where we will search the beautiful Norwegian Fjords for one of the largest mammals in the world – Whales! In our modern and safe boat we take small personal groups of guests on an exciting and thrilling ride on the Norwegian Fjords to find and watch these majestic giants in their natural environment.
From Late October to mid-February many pods of whales visit the Fjords outside Nordreisa, Skjervøy and Lyngen to feed on great shoals of herring. These conditions offer the best opportunity to get a close-up view of these sea-dwelling mammals. The most common species of whale we can see is the Humpback whale and Killer whale (Orca). In addition to the larger whales, the smaller porpoise are also known to make an appearance.
This tour comes highly recommended and is an absolutely “must do” while visiting the Lyngenfjord Region and Tromsø area.
