Aboard the motorsailer Meander in November, we have the rare pleasure of exploring the coast of northern Norway in the glow of the polar lights.

Our trip begins with embarkation in Tromsø, from where we will look for whales. This is the ideal time of year to observe orcas and humpback whales, which are attracted here by the numerous schools of herring in search of food. We do not follow a fixed or strict route, but use the time to observe whales whenever we get the chance and plan numerous spontaneous landings.

During our travel time, the days get considerably shorter and at night, the magical light shows of the Northern Lights can often be seen in the sky. Picturesque, small fishing villages await us – now away from the summer crowds. And enchanting mountain scenery surrounded by fabulous fjord landscapes. Not infrequently, we can observe the mystical activity of the northern lights.

To sum up: a wonderfully mystical and relaxing travel experience – away from the summer crowds. And all this in a small group with whale watching aboard the motorsailer Meander – a real treat!
