Experience the true essence of whale watching on this thrilling Fjord safari by Icecube of Aurora. Witness a variety of whales, including killer whales (orcas), sperm whales, porpoises and hourglass dolphins! 

Join us for a whale watching tour in Alta Fjord and experience Northern Norway's most majestic creatures up close. A winter tour in Alta Fjord can be a magical experience. Yes, it may be cold, but it might be worth it for a chance to catch sight of whales.

Recently, whales have appeared in Alta Fjord. The whales have migrated further north, allowing us to observe them in our area. The two most common species in Alta Fjord are sperm whales and killer whales (orcas), but there are also good opportunities to see porpoises and hourglass dolphins. You will be amazed by the playful and curious behavior of the youngest whales.


Please note: There is no guarantee we always find whales or if the weather is optimal to spot whales. If we don't see any whales within two hours of the tour the captain can suggest changing the tour to a King Crab Tour if the weather conditions allows it, or we can keep searching for whales.
