Whales head north during the winter in search of herring 

Northern Norway’s Tromsø is one of the world’s best bases for spectacular whale watching. October through January is the best period for whale watching because the sea mammals migrate to the waters here in search of herring along Tromsø’s beautiful coast. We usually see Humpback whales and Orcas frolicking in the feeding grounds. Whales are very social animals, so don’t be surprised if they put on a little show for you. 

Didn’t see whales? Don’t despair! We guarantee a second chance! Our experienced crew will do everything they can to ensure that you see humpback whales or Orcas on the trip. If you don’t get to enjoy these impressive animals, we will give you a free voucher for our next available whale safari within the same season.
