Arctic Explorer invites you to come on board and join the team on an adventure that will take you as close as possible to the world's biggest mammals!
Norway has so much to offer but the most amazing thing you can experience is getting up close and personal with the local wildlife. From late October to mid-February, the Norwegian fjords around Tromso welcome very special guests: whales, the world’s biggest mammals that visit to feed on herring!
The most common whale species you'll be able to see are the humpback whale, orca, harbor porpoise and sometimes even the fin whales. The islands and waters of the Norwegian fjords are also home to sea eagles, seals, and many different bird species!
This is a whale safari combined with a RIB tour. You will join us with the regular Fjord Cruise & Whale Safari on the catamaran out from Tromsø and soon before we reach the area where the whales normally are, it´s time to dress warm and jump in to the RIB boat for a real arctic close meeting with these beautiful big mammals.
After meeting in Tromsø's city center, you'll get briefed on the safety rules on board and you'll also have a presentation about the whales you can spot during our trip!
This is a fantastic experience for wildlife and photography enthusiasts! Even though Arctic Explorer's team can't guarantee sightings, since it depends on these wild creatures, they can guarantee you will have a great experience!
