Orca Tysfjord whale watching

Orca Tysfjord - Base camp for killer whale safaris - Whale watching in Tysfjord, Norway.

Orca Tysfjord has been arranging killer whale safaris since 1990, and is the pioneer in its field. We are proud to be able to welcome you to our killer whale safari, by large boat, inflatable dinghy or, if you are really ambitious, snorkeling amongst killer whales.

You're not a spectator, but part of a unique natural phenomenon. Welcome to a fantastic experience.

Tysfjord Tourist Centre
is a base camp for both the killer whale safari and research on this whale species in Norway. There is a “research centre” where the scientists work and make their material available to interested visitors.

Tysfjord is particularly well known for the large numbers of killer whales that come in from the ocean each autumn, hunting for the spring-breeding herrings, which winter in the depths of its waters. As well as killer whales, we also see white-tailed eagles on our safari tours. There are around 250 pairs in the area, which we regularly see flying down to get their claws into the herrings forced to the surface by the hunting killer whale packs.

The nature is spectacular here, north of the Arctic Circle. The days are short, but in the evenings, the Northern Lights often appear over the snow-covered mountains. At Tysfjord, which is around 250 km north of the Arctic Circle, the Northern Lights are often very strong in the autumn and winter. On a clear evening, the Northern Lights can appear in shades of green, yellow and red. Experiencing the colorful Northern Lights on a cold winter's evening is something you'll never forget, and Tysfjord is one of the best places in the world for observing them.
