Northern Norway Tromsø

Orca & whale watching - The Arctic Drive

  • Strandvegen 6, Tromsø
  •  /  km From You

Join us on an educational and responsible sailing trip to view the wild Orca and Humpback whales in Northern Norway.

Every winter the herring come back to the Norwegian coast to spawn. Cetaceans have always been present in Norway, but the orca and humpback started coming to Tysfjord in Lofoten in the 1980´s to eat the herring. As sea temperature rises, the herring have moved further and further north to spawn. Now the herring are no longer in Lofoten and have been coming to the coast of Troms and Finnmark. Norway is the only place in the world where orca and humpbacks have been observed to work together to eat the herring. We do our best to make our trips enjoyable, educational and safe for the passengers, and we treat the orca and humpbacks with care and respect - this means minimum intrusion.
We have adequate safety provisions, offer high standards of customer care, have an onboard naturalist, and support whale conservation.
