Whale watching, even on a 3D cinema screen, will never be the same as a personal encounter with these creatures. When you feel a gentle giant approaching your boat and sense the size of its smooth body gliding across the water there is a real sense of majesty to behold. Whales often reveal themselves arching their backs and flipping their tales against the water.
The Vesterålen district in Nordland County is famous for amazing whale safaris during the summer months. Sperm whales are most common in the area, but pilot whales, humpback whales, killer whales, and mincle whales often appear in sight as well. Besides whales, you are likely to see dolphins, seals, white-tailed eagles, guillemots, cormorants, puffins and other seabirds, especially at Anda Fyr.
