Go on two safaris in one day, trying to spot 2 unique natural phenomena: Whales during the day and Northern Lights during the evening.

 

INCLUDED:

A full-day adventure, including dogsledding during the day and Northern Light Aurora Camp during the evening. Between the 2 activities, you have around 2 hours in Tromsø to relax before you head out for your evening activity. Lunch is included in the dogsledding adventure, a hot meal is included in the evening activity.


YOUR DAY:

Rise and shine, as today you head out to Skjervøy to encounter orca's and humpback whales, surrounded by Arctic fjords and mountains!


We depart from Tromsø at 08:00 in the morning and head out to the whales’ feeding grounds in time to enjoy the few hours of polar daylight. On the way you can take in the breathtaking views of frozen landscapes in comfortable, warm lounges with panoramic windows. You’ll find a selection of food and drinks for purchase on board.


While we search for the whales, our passionate guides will share personal stories about interesting sights along the way and give you in debt information about the Orca and Humpback Whale. Once the whales have been spotted, we switch to our electric and silent engine to minimise disturbance to the whales. Purpose built for whale watching, our boat has multiple decks, giving you space and great views. You will be back at Tromsø between 15:00 - 17:00.


Time to relax. We welcome you back at 18:15 at the Radisson BLU hotel for your evening activity: joining us at one of our Aurora Safari Camps, looking out for the aurora!


We drive in a spacious and comfortable bus, to one of our camps. We have camps in different locations, allowing us to choose the one with the better forecast on any given night, to show you the aurora borealis (last season we had a success rate of 85%).


At the camp, you will find plenty of space inside and outside, a local host, a warm shelter (a small house, a Sami tent, or another type of structure), toilet facilities, tripods to use free of charge and thermal winter suits for your disposal. We might also have a campfire and can sit outside on benches if the weather allows us. We will be back in Tromsø between 23:30 and 01:30.
