Whale safari in Tromso – an unforgettable experience

If there is one place to go to observe the magnificent whales at first hand, it is for sure the coast of Northern Norway. Whales are something we believe must be experienced up close, as their way of being is hard to capture from only photos and videos.

Whale safari in Tromso is one of the most popular tours to join, not so surprising seeing how a whale might not be something you see everyday. Well then – come and experience the great creatures of the deep seas. The coast of Northern Norway is the prime area for a whale safari.

Join us at Polar Adventures for a whale safari you will never forget. Here you can see humpback whales as well as killer whales swimming right by the boat, as they are curious animals just like us. While taking part in whale watching here in Tromso, you will also experience the beautiful nature and most likely see several other polar animals, such as sea eagles.

Get close to the whales

Humpback whales and killer whales(Orcas) often come close to the boat to check what is happening as they are very curious. Catch a glimpse of other animals on the tour, such as sea eagles and all sorts of birds. Whale watching in Tromso happens from November and lasts to the middle of January when they come up to Northern Norway to feed on herring. Remember to bring your camera, as there is a good chance for fantastic photo opportunities.

Whale watching: Create memories for life

Whale watching is something suited for all ages, so bring your family and friends on an unforgettable experience. Don’t forget to bring your camera, because here in Tromsø there are countless picturesque scenes to capture.

To join our whale watching tour, we will pick you up in Tromso center and cruise to Skjervøy where we from there start the whale watching adventure.

Our whale tour lasts around 8 hours. It is the weather at sea that controls how long the trip will last. Safety is very important to us, and of course we have everything we would need on board the boat. To ensure a comfortable experience, we recommend that you bring warm clothes, gloves, a hat and warm shoes. During the whale safaris at sea here in Tromso, the temperature can drop below minus 30 degrees, so warm clothing is strongly recommended.

During the whale watching, hot soup will be served. In addition to this, we also have a selection of snacks that you can help yourself to should hunger arise. In this cold winter weather, we of course have coffee, tea and hot chocolate for everyone.

Polar Adventure's whale watching is a guided tour, and has put together a tour that everyone is guaranteed to be satisfied with. We look forward to showing you all the wonderful Tromso and the northern Norwegian coast have to offer in terms of fantastic nature and exciting wildlife.
