Whale Watching in Norway
Best time for whale watching in Norway?
During the winter is the best time of the year to go whale watching in Northern Norway. From late October to late January is the high season, but you may see them as late as in February, At daytime during full moon weeks, there might be greater chances to spot the whales closer to the Tromsø area because the herring is deeper in the fjords, and the whales don’t need to dive and are closer to the surface quite more often.
Usually the whales are spotted in the area around Tromsø but recent years if has been easier to spot them around the Skjervøy area, approximately two hours away from Tromsø by boat.
