Polar whalesafari to Skjervøy - Polar AdventuresAddress: 9008 Tromsø Show map
Address: 9008 Tromsø
Make your way to a centrally-located meeting point in Tromsø, where this tour begins, then board a sightseeing bus for the tour to Skjervøy Island.
The mineral-rich water off the Skjervøy coast supports a huge population of herring and plankton, which in turn attract humpback and killer whales, making it one of the finest places in Norway to see them. Find a spot on deck to scan for the whales, as a guide describes the unique ecosystem beneath the waves, and the fish and whale species that are found near Skjervøy. Watch for sea birds, as well, especially the distinctive sea eagle, whose wingspan can reach 8 feet (2.4 meters). If you’d rather keep warm and out of the wind, head below decks to the lounge, which is also fitted with wildlife viewing windows.
This tour is a combination between bus and boat.
