Water sports

We board our Targa 46 boat located in the port of Nord-Lenangen, only 4 km from the Lodge.

Our captain has 30 years of experience in the Northern Seas and, added to his good contact with local fishermen, we will drive to where the whales have last been observed.

This type of ship allows us to cruise at high speed and cover long distances in short time. When we reach these beautiful giants, we will get close to them while hearing their singing through our special surround audio system.

On the search, we will sail through magnificent scenery. If we were so unlucky not to see whales, the trip itself will be a unique experience.
