Join us on this scenic tour from Tromsø, to the beautiful Reisafjord where pods of whales are feeding on herring shoals. We will be travelling by minibus from Tromsø to Nordreisa, where the Whale Safari tour has its base. On this trip from Tromsø we will drive along the beautiful and mighty fjords of Norway! We also cross the famous Lyngenfjord by ferry, which in itself is a great opportunity to watch the stunning alps of Lyngen and its amazing coastline.
From Late October to mid-February many pods of whales visit the Fjords outside Nordreisa, Skjervøy and Lyngen to feed on great shoals of herring. These conditions offer the best opportunity to get a close-up view of these majestic sea-dwelling mammals. The most common species of whale we can see is the Humpback whale, Killer whale (Orca) and even the Fin whale sometimes. In addition to the large whales, the smaller porpoise is also known to make an appearance. This tour comes highly recommended and is an absolutely “must do” while visiting the Tromsø area.
Why choose our Whale Safari?
We perform Whale Safari in what we believe to be the best way possible! By using a medium sized boat with good space arrangement, we can get very close to the gentle giants, without disturbing their feeding.
And while we are searching for feeding whales, you will be comfortable aboard our boat “Constance”. She carries twelve people, has comfortable seating inside where hot food and beverages can be enjoyed, windows for viewing, room temperature cabin, and toilet facilities are available if needed. Outside and around the boat are viewing decks, which lets you experience the ocean up close. This is a really enjoyable tour and will most likely make you memories to cherish for life.
We depart from the point closest to the last whale observation. Departure can vary from Skjervøy Harbour, Nordreisa Harbour or Oksfjord Harbour. We provide the necessary transport and logistics, in order to ensure you get a smooth and time efficient experience.
