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 only at this time of year it is possible to observe the nutritional habits of the killer whales and humpback whales which often collaborate to hunt herring shoals. 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 snorkel 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 barely exceed – 0°C. Therefore, you will need warm clothes in order to be able to stay outside in 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 undersuit, or even with a 8-9 mm wetsuit, 5 mm gloves and socks.
For the whole trip, a daily outing of 4/5 hour is planned (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 are high that you will see humpback whales come out almost completely from the water to eat herring, or see them jump and put on an exciting show. Humpback whales are also very curious animals and it often happens that they come to browse near the boat, exiting with their bodies halfway from the surface. This behavior is called spy hopping.

At the end of each outing 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-time photos. To photograph the Northern Lights it is mandatory to bring a tripod, as well as a good SLR camera and a bright lens.

Ciao Gian Paolo, thanks a lot for the trip. You called this trip Norway Experience. And it was exactly what you promised. We returned with so much wildlife encounters – every day was so special. You do exactly know where to cruise in the fjords to see orcas and humpback whales. And even if we thought we already had a full experienced day then you brought us on a hill close to Skjevoy and we alltogether could enjoy the campfire and the Northern lights. The accommondation is very well equipped and cosy with good photography opportunities in front of the house for the Nothern lights. It is close to Skejvoy. We really had a pleasent stay. The encounters with the whales are still so intensive in our mind. Norway experience hasn´t finished for us – it just rests a year. Thanks for all. Grazie!
