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!
