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.
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.
Our marine mammal scientist will introduce you to the whales of Norway and the research program through an engaging presentation. At sea, our guests have the possibility to take part in the research and become a marine biologist for the day.
Afterwards, have a delicious warm lunch at Polaria Aquarium before exploring the site and discovering an array of fascinating marine life.
Discover the ethereal beauty of the Northern lights and enjoy an evening feast onboard our elegant tall ship, SS Johanna. Feel the history of this antique craft that has been sailing through the Norwegian sea since the late 1800’s.
Sleep-in, relax and enjoy the comfort of the hotel before checking-out. For those who wish to stay, an extra night can be added to the package for an additional cost.

Stephanie and Fred Erik made this orca safari so great. They find hidden fjords and calm places where you can enjoy the orcas wild behavour. The quality on both the boat and the hotel they got us, where very satisfying!
The best experience of my life to date!!! We saw ORCA’S!!!! The most wonderful, accomodating, thoughtful people, I could not have asked for a better experience! The accomodation was perfect, the restaurants were superb and the whales – oh the whales were breath taking!
Une sortie passionnante proposée par des passionnés ! Avant le départ Stephanie nous propose une petite présentation sur la baleines…
Stephanie and Fred are operating a family business and I believe it is a completly different experience then a regular touristic boat. Stephanie, a biologue, gave us a very informative presentation about whales. At the end we are happy to see bunch of orcas and a humpback.
