Description - What to expect

Board your comfortable and spacious catamaran in Tromsø and cruise in one of the prettiest Norway’s fjords. Your ride will take you along majestic arctic scenery and you will have the opportunity to spot impressive humpback whales, killer whales (orca), or harbor porpoises. You might even get really lucky and see a fin whale. Late October to mid-February is when some of the world’s biggest mammals visit the coast outside Tromsø to feed on herrings. Once you reach the whale feeding site, you’ll have 1-1.5 hours to take a close-up look at the feast.

During your cruise marvel at the Arctic landscape and capture with your camera some impressive photos of the mammals and the arctic landscape. Enjoy your hot coffee or tea while admiring the unique natural setting. If you’re still hungry, there is a kiosk on board to purchase hot expedition meals, snacks, and cold drinks.
