🗓 October - January

🕙 4-5 hours

In the winter season we have a fantastic light here in the North. We also have the possibilities to watch some of the world’s biggest mammals, the whales, in the Altafjord. This tour combine both fjord safari and whale watching. The most common species is the humpback whale, but also the orcas can be seen. We’ll dress you in warm suits, but we recommend that you have warm wool clothing under the suit. We will adjust the starting point by boat out from where in the fjord the whale is located. This will give us the best chances to see this amazing creatures. You will also be able to se other wildlife and get an insight in the history of Alta, from the Rock Carvings and to modern time.
