Whale Expeditions
Arctic Sea Expedition are happy to have this exclusive traditional expedition ship in our fleet, operating during the winter 2022/23. Nice cabins with shared facilities and a highly motivated crew and expedition staff, we are now ready to deliver unique northern lights & whale adventurs in Northern Norway.

Whale Expeditions – Northern Norway

Few places are still as undiscovered as the hidden fjords of Northern Norway during wintertime. The rough, high-peaked mountains are powdered with snow and the winter light can be incredible. Even in December when the sun is not rising above the horizon, the blue pastel colours of the sky are magnificent. In addition, the mysterious landscape is often illuminated by the legendary Northern Lights during clear nights, making up for the relatively short days of “daylight”. Cruising through this spectacular wilderness scenery has a humbling impact on those travellers entering the great northern land, filled with wildlife and a fascinating human history.

We invite you onboard the comfortable small expedition ship M/S Tromsø. We will cruise the sheltered coastline, inside and along a beautiful archipelago of islands, keeping our eyes peeled for wildlife and occasionally exploring the land by snowshoes.

For the last couple of years huge numbers of Orcas and Humpback Whales have joined an annual hunt for herring in the North-Norwegian fjords during wintertime. We are sailing in the area where the herring feast is expected. But, as the traveling pattern of both the whales and herring is rather unpredictable we aim to be highly flexible with our schedule and route.
Join us onboard for one of our exciting tours in true expedition style! We will have great opportunities to discover the hidden places seldom visited and experience the wildlife living there.

We are operating with M/S Tromsø as our plattform for overnighting vessel offering both topside and swimming with whales.
