Whale Watching with bus transfer from Tromsø

The Ultimate Whale Watching adventure on the TOP of the World. If you want to go on a whale-watching adventure and observe an authentic natural feast among orcas and humpback whales, join us on this amazing tour!
Departing from Tromsø by bus, by early morning (05:30 am), into Skjervøy, you will experience the stunning landscapes of the Lyngen Alps, on your way there, and then embark on an authentic Norwegian boat in Skjervøy (around 09:45 am), to meet the world’s largest mammals: humpback whales, orcas/ killer whales, harbor porpoise and others.

The guide onboard will welcome you and explain to you all about the whales and their behavior and help you find them along the journey.

This is an excellent and recommended option for guests who easily get seasickness, as the amount of time onboard is diminished since guests are transported into and back the whale area by bus, and they won’t experience the open sea, with a lot of waves.

From late October to late January each year, a big amount of herring can be found around the coast of Troms, in the Skjervøy area. This is the perfect location for humpback whales, killer whales (orcas), and other species, to come to visit and feed on the area, making it the perfect location to whale watch. This whale-watching will last for 3 hours, with lunch included (vegetarian option available) onboard.

You will be back to Skjervøy around 13:15 to take the bus back to Tromsø, where you will arrive around 17:40.
