About Whale Watching in Norway
Whales. These giants of the ocean visit the Norwegian coast every year, showing off for tourists and locals alike. In Norway, they are most commonly found along the Vesterålen coast during the summer. The most common whale to spot during the summer season is the sperm whale, but if you are lucky you may also see pilot whales, minke whales, humpbacks, dolphins and killer whales. By joining a whale safari, you will also be able to enjoy a magnificent scenery, lots of fresh sea air, and natural surroundings guaranteed to make a lasting impression.
Best place to see whales in Norway? In open sea it’s very difficult to see whales and orcas. You’ll get the best chances in between the fjords where there are a lot of fish on which the whales can hunt. Whale safaris in Norway are mostly arranged from Tromsø and Andenes (end of December to end of March).
