Day 2 - 7
Full days of exploration
We are now on an expedition cruise and our itinerary remains flexible and largely determined by weather and wildlife. We travel in November, just before the polar darkness settles over the region and when there are still enough hours of daylight. Even when the sun is below the horizon, we can enjoy enchanting dusks and dawns - the light at this time of the year is captivating. In clear weather we will see and photograph the spectacular Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) dancing in the sky. The region is known as one of the best destinations if you dream about watching this fascinating phenomenon.
Since 2010, huge shoals of herring have overwintered in the fjords around Tromsø , which has attracted many orcas and humpbacks and we will experience unforgettable encounters with these incredible mammals. The area is also a popular haunt for white-tailed eagles. They can be seen soaring above us with their impressive wingspans.
During the trip, the focus will be on the Northern Lights and whales, but when the opportunity arises, we will head out on exciting Zodiac cruises and refreshing hikes to explore Tromsø's dramatic islands up close. Kvænangen, Loppa and Vannøya are examples of places we hope to explore. Perhaps the first snow has fallen and settled over the high mountain peaks, offering marvelous sceneries together with the small picturesque houses and the beautiful fjords.
On board, we will listen to inspiring lectures by Christian and Beau, learn new Lightroom and Photoshop techniques from Gerry and Johan, enjoy delicious food and drinks and keep a lookout for wildlife and Northern Lights out on deck. For those who are interested in fishing, there will be opportunities to try your luck from the ship.
In the morning we disembark the ship, transfer back to Tromso airport, and begin our respective journeys back home.
