Whale & Arctic Wildlife Safari
Each year the world’s largest mammals visit the coast of Tromsø.
From mid of October to January, some of the world’s largest mammals visit the coast outside Tromsø to feed on the Atlantic Herring. No other fish plays that large role in feeding the life in the Norwegian Arctic as the Atlantic Herring.
The most common whale species that migrate to Arctic Norway to feed on this nutritious fish is the Humpback Whales, Killer Whales, also known as the Orcas, Harbour Porpoise, and sometimes even the Fin Whales. Join us on Whale & Arctic Wildlife Safari and enjoy a near encounter of the feast at sea.
