Is it possible to go on whale watching safaris in Lofoten?

Lofoten has a rich wildlife and is renowned for its unique and abundant life both under and over the surface. But when it comes to experiencing whales on a sea safari in Lofoten, it’s simply a matter of coincidence. No activity providers in Lofoten offer whale watching safaris or can guarantee you will see this marine mammal. If you are lucky enough to spot whales, it’s an experience you remember for the rest of your life. However, only coincidence will determine whether this happens while you are on a sea safari in Lofoten. If you want a guarantee of experiencing the mighty marine mammal, you can travel to beautiful Andenes in Vesterålen.
