Troms, Northern Norway, November 2017
This November has been spent in Northern Norway, where I’m currently guiding whale trips for Waterproof Expeditions.
.Together with an awesome crew and co-guide, I’m here to find the many Orcas and Humpback whales that annually have been gathering in the picturesque winter fjords of Troms for the last 7 years about.
.M/S Malmö is our cozy floating home and mobile whale searching base during these trips. In addition to 7 crew and 2 guides, we have space for up to 15 enthusiastic guests onboard this comfortable vessel.
.From M/S Malmö, we use two zodiacs to get our adventurous guests in the water with the gentle, majestic giants.
.With the first trip starting in early November, we still have plenty daylight to search, find and spend unforgettable time together with both Orcas and Humpback whales...
.The whale migration has been moving north lately, which is why we now also find ourselves further north than recent years. Thanks to the herring, which is the reason to the great whale gathering here, we therefore get to explore new fjords and islands.
.A very weather depending activity it is, and so is also the ever changing scenery. The mountainous landscape surrounding us is not only fairytale lookalike, but also very colorful, or the total opposite when the grey beauty takes over. Every day on the fjord is a new adventure with a unique and different setup!
.For each day that passes by, the daylight hours drastically decline. Now, in the very end of November, the sun doesn’t appear above the horizon any longer, leaving some few blue twilight hours left at noon before the long, dark Arctic night starts over again.
.I so much enjoy sharing my strong passion for nature and the wildlife and feel very fortunate to be able to share the many unforgettable moments we get to experience during these trips.
