Visiting Finnmark in winter is a one-of-the-kind experience – the light during the winter months is wonderful. You’ll also get to witness the world’s largest mammal – whales. In the Altafjord, the most common whale species are humpback whales, but some killer whales can also be spotted. The starting point will depend on where the whales are located. This could mean 1-2 hours of comfortable car ride to the starting location. You’ll also get an opportunity to see other wildlife and hear stories about the Altafjord.
