Whale & Arctic Wildlife Safari with RIB
This is a Whale and Arctic Wildlife Safari combined with a Rigid Inflatable Boat tour.
From late 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 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.
You will join us on the regular Whale and Arctic Wildlife Safari on the main ship leaving Tromsø, and before we reach the area where the whales usually are, it's time to change clothes and dress warm before embarking the RIB boat for a true Arctic near encounter experience with these beautiful and fascinating big mammals.
