Vacations & Travel - - Travel Talk -

Ev­ery North­ern Hemi­sphere win­ter, the fjords of Nor­way be­come a back­drop to mul­ti­tudes of splash­ing whales. Ma­jes­tic Whale En­coun­ters is of­fer­ing in­trepid trav­ellers the op­por­tu­nity to get close to our ocean’s gen­tle gi­ants with a nine-night cruise led by dis­tin­guished Scot­tish pho­tog­ra­pher and con­ser­va­tion­ist Grant Thomas. Guests will be able to spot puffins and seals from the decks of the MS Stron­stad, a 16-pas­sen­ger ex­pe­di­tion ves­sel that boasts hot tubs and cen­tral heat­ing, with a high­light be­ing the chance to swim with or­cas. Whale swim­ming won’t be the only thing ticked off bucket lists with the North­ern Lights on show in prime view­ing time. Other high­lights in­clude a visit to Tromso Husky Farm, a rein­deer-led sleigh ride through the for­est and a meet and greet with the tra­di­tional peo­ple of the land, the Sami. Ma­jes­tic Whale En­coun­ters is now tak­ing book­ings for Novem­ber 2019. ma­jes­ticwhaleen­coun­ters.com.au
