Europe : Whale Watching

Discover the creatures of the deep when you travel to Europe for Whale Watching breaks

Whether you consider yourself to be a wildlife expert or you merely possess a passion for nature, travelling to Europe for Whale Watching tours is an incredible way to encounter a range of animals in their natural habitats.

Our variety of holidays allows you to combine whale watching with Aurora activities, photography trips and cultural excursions. Expert guides will take you to sea in RIBs to witness Orcas, seals and dolphins and, as you tour coastal locations, you may also be fortunate enough to see the seabirds that frequent the shores, searching for prey.

The Creatures of the Deep

Set sail with us on Europe Whale Watching holidays and you can look forward to possible sightings of Orcas, Humpbacks, Sperm and Minke whales. There is also the possibility of seeing Pilot Whales and Harbour Porpoises, depending on your location. Opt for a trip to Husavik in Iceland, for example, and some 23 species are known to inhabit the local waters there.

Although sightings can never, of course, be guaranteed, we use local knowledge, scientific predictions and sealife movement patterns to give you the best possible opportunities to encounter these creatures. Whales and dolphins follow North Atlantic Migration routes along the gulf stream and pursue shoals of herring in search of food. If you are going to see these wonderful creatures, we know the best places to take you.

Wildlife and the Aurora

See the Northern Lights when you travel to Europe on Whale Watching holidays

Travel during the latter months of the year and you can spend the days searching for marine life and nights looking to the skies for the astonishing glow of the Northern Lights.

An appearance from the Aurora will be an added bonus to your holiday and, with expert guides available to give you top tips about how best to photograph them, friends and family back home can also share in the delight of your experience.

The Money Shot

Many of our customers opt for trips to Europe for Whale Watching in search of the perfect wildlife shot. Our guides, on these adventures, are experienced and, indeed, recognised photographers in their own right who work as guides to indulge their passion and share it with the many visitors who come here year after year. They will be able to advise you on capturing the perfect image and will, no doubt, educate you on the difference between wildlife and Aurora photography and how to set up your equipment for the best results in each case.

Whale Watching Short Breaks

It doesn’t matter how much or how little time you have to spare, as our short breaks are packed with exciting activities, allowing you to experience all the highlights of a wildlife tour in Europe. View the most spectacular vistas as you speed across Norway’s landscapes on a husky dog sled and discover the traditions of the local Sámi people during an Arctic feast. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about the area’s indigenous reindeer and can even try your hand at lassoing them when you visit a local reindeer farm.

A Romantic Retreat

Surprise your partner with a Valentine’s Day to remember when you take them to Norway for a spectacular whale watching break. This carefully crafted couples’ holiday is perfect for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers as it introduces you to the most beautiful regions of the Vesterålen archipelago. Enjoy an exciting day of whale watching and book additional excursions to enjoy with your loved one. Fun-loving couples can take to the hills on a sledge, or meet the friendly, local husky dogs, before taking a sled through fairytale forests.
