In the winter herring comes into the fjords of Northern Norway, and with that, also the whales join the fiesta. This is the best place to come meet the whales (humpback whales, fin whales, orcas, among others that might show up). The whales move after the herring, and are not always as easy to find, but being on the ship gives us a good opportunity to find them and take a closer look without disturbing them, while they are feeding.
The water is about 5-7ºC, so we recommend bringing a dry suit or a good 7-9 mm wet suite. If you don´t have one, you can rent or buy one from Kingfish, the organizational company, before departure.
In general, the trip is suitable for anyone. We do however recommend having swimming and snorkeling experience and that you are ready to snorkel in open water. We also recommend that you are able to get in and out of the inflatable boats. Of course, our skilled and trained guides will be there to ensure everyone has a good time.

Arrival to Tromsø. Check in and accommodation onboard MS Strønstad.
On the boat. We are out looking for the whales, trying to get in the water. In the beautiful fjords of Northern Norway, we can also meet other wildlife like white tale eagle and seals. In the evenings we can relax in the jacuzzi, looking for Northern lights under what hopefully will be a starry sky. Even the last day we will have a full day of whale searching. We will sail back to Tromsø at night.
Breakfast, then departure.
