Fjord & Whale Adventure
In winter, whales come to the herring-rich fjords in northern Norway to hunt. This is a unique opportunity to experience the whales up close while exploring the beautiful Fjords of northern Norway.
You will get to enjoy the beautiful winter skies, while surrounded by mountains and the fjords wildlife.
We adjust the start point of this trip to where the whales have last been seen to maximize your chance of seeing them. This can mean that we first have to drive for up to 1 hour to get to our harbor.
Once on the boat we will make our way out into the fjords to look for humpback whales and Orcas. We will keep a safe distance and turn off our boat engines to minimize the disturbance to the whales. The whales are just as curious about visitors as we are about them, so they will most likely come and swim around our boat.
Please note that while we try our best, we can not guarantee that we will actually see whales on the trip. The season start and end date can be adjusted according to whale migration patterns.
Meet us at our Æverntyr Adventure Store in the city center 5-10 minutes before the start of the Tour.
The Tour will start with a short briefing. You will also get warm suits, gloves, boots and googles to wear on the boat. Afterwards your guide will take you on a beautiful drive along the fjords and mountains to our harbor in Baddern.
Once at the harbor we will start our trip out on the fjord. Your captain will search for the whales and try to get you as close as possible without disturbing them.
After returning to the harbor we will serve you a warm lunch before returning to Alta.
We will get back to our Adventure Store in the city center.
