Location - Tromsø

Tromsø is situated about 350 km from the Arctic Circle, and is the largest city in Northern Norway. The city was established in 1794, but people settled in the area already 11 000 years ago. During the 1900s Tromsø became a starting point for various research expeditions to the Arctic, and it was named Gateway to the Arctic. 

Today Tromsø is a vivid city with various activities all year round. During the winter season the area is a good starting point for whale watching and hunting the northern lights.

In Tromsø, Arctic Whale Tours is located at the main harbor, the pier next to Clarion Collection Hotel With (Sjøgata 35-37). Please be at our boat Blasius II at 08:15.

Location - The fishing village Stø

At 68° north, 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, you find Stø, a small but living tradisional long-line fishing village. Stø, with its 200 inhabitants, is situated in Øksnes municipality, (Nordland County). The municipality has a population of about 4500 people, of which 2800 live in Myre, the administration centre. The closest town is Sortland, which is situated 50 kilometres south of Stø. From May to August Stø is swarming with life due to yearly greenland halibuts fisheries. Anda Lighthouse, five kilometres northwest of Stø, is the home of one of the Northern Norway largest puffing colonies and the island also houses a big harbor seal colony.

Arctic Whale Tours reception is located in a big, red building on the pier in the middle of the harbor. Our whale watching tours depart from the pier right next to the reception building.
