All Our Norway Holidays
Orca whale off Andenes | Holidays to NorwayOrca whale off Andenes | Holidays to NorwayLooking for whales on foredeck of trawler | Holidays to NorwaySperm whales off Andenes | Holidays to NorwayKiller whale diving off Andenes | Holidays to Norway

Get 'up close and personal' with whales at the apex of the Vesteralen/Lofoten archipelago some 190 miles north of the Arctic Circle from a high speed RIB and a carvel hulled modified trawler. Proximity to the edge of the Continental Shelf means sperm whales have a deep feeding canyon with squid and larger fish like Halibut and Cod all year round, whist seasonally Humpbacks, Fin whales and Orca come to feed on the herring as they move in to the fjord . You'll also be smack bang in the middle of the Aurora Zone, the span of latitiude in which there are the best chances of seeing the Northern Lights which you will have a chance to spot on a guided snow shoe hike.
