Far North, far East, off the beaten track 

For the past 10 years the fjords North-East of Tromsø in Northern Norway  probably have been the best whale watching area on the planet? Where else is it possible to see orcas, humpbacks and fin whales at such a close range that you can almost touch the animals? They swim alongside the boat, they dive under you, they just stay floating around, they breach, they jump, They eat and have fun. 

They are here because of the herring that stay inside the fjords from late October till late January. That is what they have been doing for some years now. And where there is herring there are whales. Plenty!

The Northern Lights - Aurora Borealis - is always in the sky. For the best displays wee need it to be dark, as little clouds as possible, no light pollution - and a fairly good Northern Lights forecast. If the display is good, it will blow your mind. As will the whales.

We started to do these trips in 2014. In total we have made 25 trips/80 days at sea,  and have seen whales on every trip and every day. Hundreds of whales.
