Whale & Arctic Wildlife Safari

Get your tickets here

Each year the world’s largest mammals visit the coast of Tromsø. Join our wildlife safari for the chance to spot humpback whales, orcas, harbour porpoise and more.

From mid of October to January, some of the world’s largest mammals visit the coast outside Tromsø to feed on the Atlantic Herring. No other fish plays such a large role in feeding the life in the Norwegian Arctic as the Atlantic Herring.

The most common whale species who migrate to Arctic Norway to feed on this nutritious fish is the Humpback Whales, Killer Whales, also known as the Orcas, Harbour Porpoise, and sometimes even the Fin Whales. Join us on our Whale & Arctic Wildlife Safari and enjoy a near encounter of the feast at sea.

The destinations we decide to go to on the tour will differ from day to day. The tour schedule is based on the weather conditions and the probability to observe the whales.

Note: If you don't see any whales on your tour, you can book a second tour for free. (Subject to availability on the next tour).
