Polar Adventures would have to run the most amazing fjord cruises in Tromso! Our hosts today were Ivan and Nicolai Helgesen. I could not have asked for a better crew to take us around. Their knowledge, humour and friendiness were just outstanding! We were made...More

Dear David, the whale season happens from the beginning of November to the end of January, as we have been experiencing but of course this might vary from season to season.
