Tysfjord Turistsenter

Traveller (36)
Room & Suite (22)
Dining (8)


Tysfjord Turistsenter Hotel is located 250 km above Arctic circle. We are a base camp for wildlife/killer whale safaris in Norway, and offer modern hotel rooms with all conveniences. The hotel also has lecture and conference rooms, and a large, pleasant reception area with an open fireplace where flames burn most of the day. The complex is in a picturesque setting, looking onto the idyllic Storjordpolden and facing Norway's national mountain, the Stetind. Some of the world's most beautiful rock carvings are close by. The Tysfjord Tourist Centre is a hotel big enough to meet most requirements, but small enough to ensure personal contact and good service.

Room was well used, staff was indifferent to us, dinning room food was average. During late night early morning, reception was closed (locked). We had dinner in the Hotel restaurant, food was just ok. No coffee in room. Room was quiet.

After a long drive from Bodo, the Turistsenter was a much needed respite from the long lonely road. Simple & basic, it had everything I needed for a good night's sleep. The views around Tysfjord are spectacular, especially in winter. Staff were friendly and welcoming. One

Some years ago there were Orcas in Tysfjord. Today, there are none. The Orcas moved North to Andenes and beyond. So there is no reason to go to Tysfjord. They still offer Orca tours, but they will just transfer you to Andenes. So you need to travel a long distance without any

Response from Edmundas C, Manager at Tysfjord Turistsenter
Responded 19 Oct 2016
Hi AdmBreen(sorry, do not know your real name), Fist of all thank you for your review. Tysfjord Turistsenter AS(hotel) is the first company in Norway to offer killer whale safaris and snorkelling for over 20 years ago. Since the beginning we always hired Lofoten Opplevelser to run boats as a partner. Some years ago, when migration of herring have changed, after some research we have decided to run tours from Andenes and we brought Lofoten Opplevelser there. Our basecamp always was in Tysfjord. Part of our guests come directly to Andenes and part(mostly those who wish to experience also other activities, not only killer whale safaris) come here to Tysfjord. All this information we provide on our web page, facebook and by communicating on emails or phone. We even have our partner hotel in Andenes for those who wish to travel directly there. We even have a plan to run killer whale tours from Tromso(together with Lofoten Oppleveleser). Killer whales do not belong to Tysfjord, Andenes or Tromso and with our crew experience we are ready to follow where ever they migrate. It could be the same with northern lights. Some times we, and other operators in all northern Norway have to travel all night for many hundred km. to be able to find them. It is nature not zoo! I am not sure what you mean about cheating? If you stay in Tysfjord you pay for killer whale safari 200 NOK more then if you stay in Andenes because of travel costs(ferry and bus drive). I guess it is way cheeper then travelling to Andenes on your own with 2 flights from Oslo. One more thing.... for past couple years we observe big increasing of herring in Tysfjord and Vestfjord and most likely in couple years killer whales might be back in this area again. And what would you say if you travel to Andenes then? Blame Sea Safari? We can not predict nature so we try to be flexible what ever it brings. All the best from Tysfjord :)
