Whale watching bus tour from Rovaniemi to Tromso, Norway.
(3 day/2 night) november-february
Whale Safari included in this tour!
Located next to a sea “boiling” with whales, Tromso City offers you in winter the opportunity to see these enormous animals. Norway is chosen by Humpback Whales and Killer Whales for the vast supply of fish and clean water. The experience here in the North Norwegian waters is completely different from the rest of the world because the whales are here to feed and hunt, and they are extremely active. Remember to bring your camera, and you could take the shot of your life, not just of whales, but also other wildlife like seals or sea eagles.
