Snorkeling with orcas in Norway

A great event takes place in northern Norway every winter. Large schools of herring pass along the shore, attracting numerous orcas and humpback whales. The breathtaking show takes place here, in the cold and dark waters of the Norwegian Arctic, and it does not stop even during the polar night. Swimming with orcas in an extreme and unforgettable experience.
We provide accommodation in a comfortable hotel. We will use a large daily vessel with heated cabins for going out to the sea and zodiacs for approaching the whales.
This is a snorkeling/freediving trip only, as it's impossible to use tanks when diving with orcas, so you dont need to have a diving skills to join the expedition.

  • Large schools of herring
  • Orcas, several pods per day if we are lucky
  • Humpback whales
  • Fin whales, sei whales and minke whales are possible
