Padling with orcas and humpback whales in Northern Norway!
From November to January milliards of herring are entering the fjords of Northern Norway, and with them follow both orcas (killer whales) and humpback whales.
With only 4 hours of enough daylight to kayak, we have been so lucky to be able to paddle with these fantastic marine mammals. We had them in front of us, behind us, and yes, right under the kayak!
We even heard them talking together... Do you know that the orcas stay together in families of several generations and each family has their own dialect? You can heat them talking in my film below!
When you are kayaking among orcas and humpback whales in Northern Norway in the Polar Night period in late November, your heart rate is slightly elevated :)
