Now it is possible to combine whales and midnight sun with a visit to one of Northern Norways most important bird cliffs, Bleiksøya. There you will see thousands of Puffins, White-tailed eagles and other species under the midnight sun. Have your camera ready to capture this spectacle of nature.
Our midnight sun trips take place between end of May and end of July, and are weather dependent. It is a combined whale and bird watching tour and is offered at specific dates, if the weather conditions allow for and last about 4 hours.
