North Norway Whale Safari

2021/22 Departures Available | Explore the northern Norwegian coastline in search of humpback whales, orcas and the Aurora Borealis on this seven-night Arctic winter cruise. You will sail aboard an historic schooner that is perfectly suited for sailing among the islands and narrow fjords of northern Norway. Available Nov-Feb.

Outline Itinerary

  1. Day 1: Board your ship in Tromso

    The voyage starts in the town of Tromso, sometimes referred to as the ‘Paris of the North’, because of its romantic setting and lively street scene. Here your vessel will be waiting in the harbour, ready to set sail tomorrow morning!

  2. Day 2: Set sail in search of whales

    Early in the morning, we depart from Tromso sailing either clockwise or anti-clockwise around Senja, Norway’s second largest island, notable for its spectacular fjords, islets and mountains.

  3. Day 3-6: Whale-watching

    The next four days are spent sailing along the northern coasts of Senja and Andfjorden, where various species of whale, including orca, sperm and humpback. are frequently sighted in the early winter months, as they follow the herring shoals north into the Arctic Circle.

  4. Day 7-8: Sommarøy

    Continuing our journey around Senja, we arrive at the small island of Sommarøy. Here there are good opportunities to see the Northern Lights as well as fantastic walking trails. You spend the last morning of the cruise exploring the island’s small bays and white beaches, where you can climb 211 metres to the summit of Mount Hillesøya for panoramic views of the rugged coastline.
