Description

Join us for a 7-day whale watching week in Norway’s amazing Lyngen Fjord, a unique paradise of unspoilt nature. We will take you out every day to watch whales in some of the most beautiful fjords in Troms county.

Watching these impressive animals up close, in such a breathtaking environment of dramatic peaks and stunning fjords, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience! We will search for whales and enjoy the great outdoors, watching them often swimming right next to us.

It’s quite difficult to see whales in open sea. We get the best chances to watch them in between the fjords, where there are a lot of fish for the whales to hunt. Watching the whales playing, swimming and hunting is a memory for life!

During these days, you will be staying at our comfy, warm and fully equipped apartments at the Lyngen Outdoor Center, in the  Uløya Island, 500 km beyond the Arctic Circle. Situated in the Lyngen Fjord, Uløya is a very special and quiet place, surrounded by  beautiful mountains and crystal-clear fjords.

This trip is also a great opportunity to watch the fascinating Northern Lights, or Aurorea Borealis, a magical ballet of light dancing across the night sky, with a great colour palette. Come enjoy nature at its wildest, stunning views and tranquility, in a very special place.

About the guide

The Lyngen Outdoor Center is located in Norway´s far north, in the eastern part of the island of Uløya.

Located just 500km beyond the Arctic circle and surrounded by stunning fjords (including the famous Lyngen fjord), Uløya is a dream setting to practice a wide range of activities (ski touring, climbing and hiking are an every day occurrence here).

The Lyngen Outdoor Center team is made up of IFMGA-certified guides and outdoor lovers only. We are skiers, climbers and anglers. Our expeditions have taken us all around the world, including Himalaya, the Tian Shan Range, Patagonia, Madagscar and Mali, to name a few. We created this place to share our knowledge and passion with you.

You won't have trouble finding us: the only route on this part of the island leads straight to us. You can take a ferry to get here or we can pick you up in our "water taxi".

Our very comfortable apartments are located just 50 meters away from the water line. They offer everything you'll need for a skiing or fishing trip with your friends, including a drying room. Our boats are some of the most modern in all of the Lyngen area and a large sized pier is located just 50m away from your accommodation.

Come explore the unbelievable Arctic. We'll be happy to welcome you!

Uloya is a trip of a lifetime. You find surreal beauty, natural elements at their chore where sea, mountains and skies confound, and shared passion from the hosts. Our guide Pavel was super professional and friendly. Artur, the main host loves to share his passion for nature, sport and good food. Explore Share was top class as they integrated our demand for an outdoor expedition very well and drafted out this incredible option very quickly. Easy access for follow up made us feel just good. Go for it.

Whoua!!! Une superbe semaine ski de randonnée à Uloya et les environs avec Lyngen Outdoor Center ! Artur et son équipe nous ont super bien accueillis. En plus du ski de randonnée, on a essayé la pêche dans les fjords. Je recommande vivement si vous cherchez un spot tranquille avec une superbe vue pour vous évader pour du ski de randonnée!

We had a wonderful trip and were spoiled by all people over there, Artur was a great organizer and treated us like friends, Marcin was a perfect guide and always helpful and friendly, Pawel was the perfect cook who spoiled us with delicious food, Mike drove us everywhere and gave us always a save feeling, and also the other helping hands were all friendly and lovely. We hast a great time. Also the house was perfect for us and very nicely designed. The side program very good and also there the guides and staff friendly. Ding sledge touring was effectively too short for the price, but it was nevertheless beautiful. Snowscooters as well and the day on the water by boat a perfect break! So, all in whole a perfect holiday thanks to the professional and friendly staff!

Sublime experience ! Although the beauty had been well telegraphed by my predecessor friends, I was still astonished by the beauty of the pristine landscape and nature. Facing a slope covered in snow while being surrounded by fjords is the best combination of colors and drasticity at the same time. The local team headed by Artur is exceptionally efficient, always coordinated night and day, and very competent. The fact that Artur lives on site is particularly helpful.  A couple of notes to future visitors: (1) always go where Artur tells you (he knows where the good spots, finessed based on the local conditions), and (2) go with the boat and dingy, and start the ascent from the beach, at least once on your stay.  Our guide David Pellissier from Aosta was a great resource and companion: very safe, straight-shooter, and always tuned to the group's wishes and pace.
