TOURENBESCHREIBUNG

During the last 5-6 years the fjords and coastline outside of Tromsø, this has been an arena for a spectacular meeting with some of the biggest whales in the sea.

Orca, or the killer whale as it’s more commonly known as, travels every year a long distance up to Troms to feed on the massive amounts of herrings we have in our fjords.

During the 50’s and 60’s overfishing became a big problem and drove them away for many years.

It’s not by accident that names of villages, islands and fjords has been name in relation to this magnificent animal, at a time when nature was in balance. Examples of these are «Kvaløya» (Whale Island), «Kvalnes» (Whale Cape), “Kvalsundet” (Whale Strait), and “Kvaløyvågen” (Whale Bay).

We are very delighted to see that nature is starting to become more in balance again, and it’s great to witness the whales returning to our coastline.

Photo hunting these great animals often creates a memory for life for anyone lucky enough to be a part of it.

Our excursion consists of a short ride in a minibus from the center of Tromsø, to our boat at Kvaløya. From our dock it’s a short trip to where the whales have been hunting herrings for the past years.

There’s no guarantee that we’ll see the orcas at every excursion, that’s why the trip in itself, the nature and the photo hunting is an important part of the experience.

During this time of the year there’s also good possibilities to see humpback whales and the northern light as well, and because of this we can guarantee an amazing experience with nature.

Tromsø is situated at approximately 70 degrees north and because of this it should normally have a cold climate with icy fjords most of the year, but fortunately that’s not the case.

The gulf current brings a temperate water all the way from the Mexico Gulf and run upwards the Norwegian coastline. During the winter months the temperature in the sea is mostly around 4 degrees Celsius.

There’s open water all year along the coastline, and there’s only a few fjord areas during the winter months where you’ll find frozen water created by the freshwater running out from the rivers.

This creates a unique opportunity for photo safaris most of the year, and in this environment a varied amount of species thrives, both on land and in the sea. Among them white-tailed eagles, auks, puffins, crutch birds, cormorants, seal, humpback whales, mink whales and harbour porpoises.

Arctic Safari is co-operating with The Northern Lights Hunter and together we can bring you and your friends along one of the most exclusive orca safaris out there.

We can guarantee exciting trips in a unique and grand Northern Norwegian nature, where you’ll be provided with interesting information, and guided both in Norwegian and English. Guiding in German or Chinese is possible for an extra fee.

Come onboard the M/V “BigFisher II”, our 14,75 meters long Striker completely from aluminum sport fishing boat. Captain Morten, an experience fisherman, will use his local knowledge to bring you to the best spots for whale safaris.
