Whale Photo Expedition

Jan 27 - 31 2018


Whales and northern light photography in the fjords of Tromsø.

We are chartering the ship MS Strønstad for this Whale photography expedition in the fjords in Tromsø. We believe in staying close to the whales all the time on board a ship and have short distances to drive with zodiacs. MS Strønstad give us a comfortable stay in bad weather and during nights we can just relax if we dont have any northern light to photograph.

If we have northern light we will work even during night to get some good photography done. It is even possible to spend time searching for whales if we have clear sky.

Dates: January 27 - 31  2018
Duration: 4 nights / 5 days
Embark: Tromsø, Jan 27 09:00
Disembark: Tromsø, Jan 31 17:00
