What You’ll Do

During the winter and spring seasons, the humpback and orca whales, as well as porpoises, dolphins, and eagles, are very active around Kvaløya, and the surrounding fjords because of the calmer weather conditions. Join Explore the Arctic for an incredible tour where their highly qualified guide will provide valuable information about the wildlife, surrounding nature, and history of the region while you enjoy a tour around the surrounding fjords.

The charter boat comes equipped with both an outdoor observation deck and an indoor panoramic area, providing great options to make the whale watching tour more enjoyable. 

The tour will depart from Lauklines Kystferie promptly at 09:00 and will take you for a tour around the nearby fjords for a few hours. Following the tour, you will be served a lunch of local specialties before the return trip to Tromsø.
