Observe humpback whales and killer whales at a time when the nights are long, and the Northern Lights also can be admired far away from other artificial lights.
Ecperience orcas, humpback whales and Northern Wildlife.
This trip allows us to observe for hours humpback whales and killer whales that come during the fall to the fjords of the wild coast of Troms, and especially those of the island of Kvaløya near our outdoor center. This activity takes place at a time when the nights are long, which also gives us the opportunity to admire the northern lights far away from other artificial lights. While on the field, we can observe otters, seals, eagles and many sea birds wintering in Northern Norway.
During this cruise you will learn a lot about the cetaceans with two conferences given on board by Mario Acquarone, doctor in marine biology & marine mammals.
Every night the yacht, a comfortable polar base camp, anchor or stops at a berth in well protected bays where it is possible to go ashore for a walk or just to stretch your legs before dinner. The evening provides an opportunity to revisit the highlights of the day in pictures or videos.
