We will meet you in Finnsnes at the café Kaffen Klar located at the speed boat terminal. Then we will have a transfer from Finnsnes to Hamn in Senja where the Whale Research Safari and Northern Lights Cruise will take place.
Our marine mammal scientist will introduce you to the whales of Norway and the research program through an engaging presentation. At sea, our guests have the possibility to take part in the research and become a marine biologist for the day. Then, discover the ethereal beauty of the Northern Lights on an evening cruise around Senja. With any luck, the whales will find us and make this experience truly memorable. Our enclosed boat with heated cabin will ensure you have a comfortable journey.
Accommodation at Hamn in Senja.
Sleep-in, relax and enjoy a nice breakfast in the comfort of the hotel before checking-out. Our transport service departs after check-out and will drop you off at the meeting point.
