Full description
Board your comfortable catamaran in the Tromsø city center. As you sail you’ll learn about Norway’s wildlife, fishing, aquaculture, local villages, and weather from your knowledgable guide. Marvel at the Arctic landscape and the beautiful fjords. Take photos from either the indoor or outdoor viewing decks. Enjoy hot coffee or tea, as admire the unique natural setting. If you’re still hungry, there is a kiosk on board to purchase hot expedition meals, snacks, and cold drinks.

Late October to late January is when some of the world’s biggest mammals visit the coast outside Tromsø to feed on herrings. During this period you’ll have the highest possibility of seeing a humpback whale, killer whale (orca), or harbor porpoise. You might even get really lucky and see a fin whale. Once you reach the whale feeding site, you’ll have 1-1.5 hours to take a close-up look at the feast.

Keep in mind that the weather in the arctic can be rough some days. If you think you might get seasick, please bring sea-sickness medicine with you and take it half an hour before the trip starts.
