A variety of photo tours, expeditions and workshops in Svalbard and North-Norway(photography whale safari)
Most wildlife photo tours organized by See and Explore in Svalbard, are conducted on foot in the summer or winter alike, depending on the weather conditions. Our hikes are conducted in a terrain supposed to be light and manageable to the participants. We also arrange photographic workshops, where we also are using snowmobile or boats. If you have special needs regarding how we facilitate the tour, please let us know by contacting us.
From late November and December you can join us at the sea areas off Skjervøy, north of Tromsø, where we have the whales’ hunting grounds. From November to January, these giant marine mammals migrate towards the coast in search of herring. The last years, the whales´have moved from the coast of Tromsø and further north and, since 2017, whales have stayed in the Skjervøy area, but no one knows if they will remain there for the next seasons.
