All about the Whale Research & Northern Lights, 5 Days, Whale Safari, Norway.

Whale Research & Northern Lights

Our unique Whale Safari in Norway combines whale watching, one of the most incredible displays nature has to offer, with a captivating, in-depth research experience.

Every winter off the coast of Tromsø, the gateway to the arctic, a great number of orcas and humpback whales gather to feast on rich feeding grounds.

 

Day 1

We start our arctic journey with a Northern lights dinner cruise. Discover the ethereal beauty of the aurora and enjoy an evening feast on-board our elegant tall ship. Feel the history of this antique vessel that has been sailing through the Norwegian sea since the late 1800’s.

Day 2

Go on a dog sledding adventure in the heart of Norway’s wilderness. Experience the great outdoors firsthand as man’s best friend takes you for the thrill of a lifetime. If you are looking for a softer adventure, you can choose to go on a reindeer sledding journey and let the indigenous people of Norway invite you into their home. Warm up around the fire for storytelling and enjoy a traditional Sámi meal.

Get ready for an evening filled with beautiful lights dancing in the sky! Chase the Northern lights by bus and let our expert explain how this extraordinary phenomenon takes place. We end the day at the Aurora Glam-camp and get ready to spend the next couple of days living the Wild Arctic.

Day 3

We explore some of the most beautiful fjords to view the pristine, dramatic landscape while searching for whales, sea eagles and other incredible wildlife. Start whale watching and see the whales where National Geographic come to film their Blue Planet documentaries and live the moment instead of watching it on a screen.

Our marine mammal scientist will introduce you to the whales of Norway and the research program through an engaging presentation. Take part in the research and become a marine biologist for the day as we enter the realm of the whales. Participation is strictly voluntary, so those who simply want to enjoy the whale watching are welcomed to.

We have a wonderful dinner at the aurora glam-camp under a sky filled with dancing lights and enjoy an evening sharing laughs by the fire.

Day 4

We go on a second day of whale watching and exploring the spectacular Norwegian fjords and experience nature at it’s best. The whales, dramatic mountains and polar lights will once again leave in awe. We then begin our way to Tromsø city, also know as the Paris of the North, and drive though the spectacular Lygnen Alps.

Check into a lavish hotel and unwind in the beautiful surroundings of Tromsø city. Enjoy a 5-course dinner in one of Norway’s most highly acclaimed restaurants offering a fusion of traditional Norwegian dishes influenced by French cuisine and international dining trends.

Day 5

Sleep-in, relax and enjoy the comfort of the hotel before checking-out. An extra night’s accommodation and additional activities can be added for an extra cost.
