Some photos from a wee trip up to Tromso in Norway in the first week of January 2016. The fjords around Tromso are literally teaming with whales. I had expected to spend hours scanning the horizon for small black dots but in reality if you went out on a boat, stood in one place and turned 360, you could see them in every direction! We were lucky enough to see some bubble-net feeding in action where the humpbacks (which can weight up to 40 tonnes) erupted out of the water gathering mouthfuls of herring as they went. Mind-blowing. If you can, go visit. I’m dying to go back for a stab at the Tromso Skyrace in summer, my back account on the other hand is not.
