Polar Whale Safari

Come and experience the great creatures of the Sea. The coast of Northern Norway is the prime area for spotting whales.  Humpback whales and killer whales 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 happens from November to 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. We will pick you up in Tromsø center and take our boat Fjord Queen or Polar Queen out to the Whale Island where the adventure begins. This is a fantastic trip if you like to explore the beautiful nature around Tromsø while taking great photos. You can enjoy the view from the saloon or the lounge too!
