NORWAY EXPERIENCE


Norway experience is a journey designed and focused on the sighting of killer whales, humpback whales and the northern lights.
It takes place in October, November, December and January because it is at this time of year that it is possible to observe the nutritional habits of the killer whales and humpback whales who often collaborate in this period to hunt the schools of arigas. It will be possible to capture an unprecedented scenario on board a private boat. For the boldest it will also be possible to enter the water and do snorkeling to see and photograph the killer whales and humpback whales in their own element, observing their hunting strategies to feed on their favorite fish.
During the winter, temperatures in Norway slightly exceed -0 ° C. However, you will need warm clothes to be able to stay outside the boat and to go out in the evening to see the northern lights. For those wishing to try the experience of entering the water to have a close encounter with the animals, it is possible to do it with a drysuit and a 400 gram suit, or even with a 8-9 mm wetsuit, 5 mm gloves and boots.
Everyday, there will be a daily 4/5 hour outing (from sunrise to sunset, therefore from about 9am to 2pm). The lights game will be incredible for all photography lovers. Maximum attention is required though, since during eating, the chances of seeing humpback whales come out almost completely from the water to eat herring, or see them jump giving an exciting show, are very high. Humpback whales are also very curious animals so they often come to snoop near the boat, leaving their bodies halfway from the surface. This behavior is called spy hopping.

At the end of each sea trip there will be plenty of time to rest and eat something before hunting for the Northern Lights. Thanks to the rental cars it will be possible to reach incredible landscapes that will be the backdrop for night photos. To photograph the Northern Lights it is mandatory to bring a tripod, in addition to a good reflex and a bright lens.
