Our vision

Arctic Whale Tours’ main goal is to provide our visitors with a unique opportunity to observe marine animals in their natural surroundings and to spread knowledge about their behaviour and biology. 

Our aim is to operate our business in a sustainable and responsible way in order to ensure the welfare of the animals and to minimise our impact on nature.

We strive to offer our guests the best service and an unforgettable nature experience – we want you to feel as a part of our team. Comfortably sized ships, friendly and experienced naturalist guides and delicious fish-soup of local ingredients are examples of what to expect from a tour with us.

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.

The fishing village Stø

At 68° north, 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, you find Stø, a small but living traditional 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 bigger town is Sortland, which is situated 50 kilometres south of Stø. Please note that the closest grocery stores are in Myre.

From May to August, Stø is swarming with life due to yearly greenland halibut fisheries. Anda Lighthouse, five kilometres northwest of Stø, is the home of one of the largest puffing colonies in Northern Norway. For the hikers out there, Dronningruta offers a rewarding hike with breathtaking views.

Arctic Whale Tours reception is located in a big, red building with paintings of whales on the pier in the middle of the harbour. You can't miss us!

Despite being a small, traditional fishing village, Stø offers a variety of different accommodation types to suit everyone's wants and needs.

Stø Bobilcamp offer full facilities along with a cafe for campers and caravans. Apartment rental is also available.

Gunnartangen Rorbuer offer classy and cosy cabins by the Stø Harbour, only a 2 minute walk from our office.

We warmly welcome you to come experience this unique place with us!
