Orcas and winter in Norway! Does it sound appealing to you? Or even to snorkel with them? Do you find it thrilling to encounter Humpback whales, Fin or even Sperm whales and want to enjoy Northern Lights in the polar night? Or do you prefer the summer and midnight sun? A Whale watching trip to the majestic Sperm whales or a Bird watching trip to Bleiksøya, one of the largest bird cliffs in Northern Norway with its Puffins and White-tailed eagles.
Andenes in the north of the Vesterålen islands is situated just close to "Bleik-canyon" a deep-sea canyon at the edge of the continental shelf and whales the whole year around. In only 15 - 50 minutes we reach the whales with our RIB Boats and get close to these intriguing animals. In order to find whales we collaborate with local whale-researchers like the Norwegian Orca Survey and we do surveys from the Andenes Lighthouse. Through our networks we do know what whale species are currently in our proximity.
Only a few kilometers from Andenes there are the important bird-cliffs Bleiksøya and Forøya, known in Norway for their diverse and rich bird life. Besides many thousands of nesting Puffins we find White-tailed eagles, Shags, Guillemots, Razorbills, Gulls and the beautiful Gannets.
We invite you to spend an unforgetable time in Andenes (Norway) and experience arctic wildlife at its best at close range.
