Northern Lights Whale Watching

Nature lovers are in for a real treat as they set out on one of our Northern Lights Whale Watching tours.

With the chance to catch sight of the magnificent Orca/Killer Whale in its natural environment, our Orca Whale Watching Holiday is not to be missed. This voyage will take you to Andenes, a popular feeding spot for Orcas, greatly increasing your chances of a sighting. There’s plenty of other wildlife on this journey, including potential sightings of the Humpback Whale along with seals and the huge variety of birds which live along the Norwegian coast. In the evenings on this tour there is ample opportunity to search the skies for the Aurora Borealis. Indeed, catching a glimpse of both the whales and the Northern Lights is sure to make an unforgettable trip.

For a more romantic getaway, the Northern Lights Valentine Break Vesterålen is perfect. What better way to spend Valentines than with your loved one under an Aurora sky? With nightly Northern Lights searches, we provide the best opportunity to do just that as the experienced guides take you on an exploration of the local area to the best viewpoints for the Aurora. During the day you can take to the waves as you search for the Orca and Humpback whales that reside in these waters. Remember to keep an eye open for other creatures too such as the White-Tailed Eagle, various species of seals and even dolphins. This Northern Lights Whale Watching break is the ideal trip for Valentines everywhere.
