Teriberka. Whales in the Barents Sea

A tour to Teriberka in search of whales — to the coast of the Barents Sea in the village of Teriberka, where whales often approach.

A distinctive feature of the tour is the duration of the boat trip and a comfortable ship with a sauna — in the warmer months we go out to sea for 7 hours, which increases the likelihood of meeting whales. 

There is a chance of encountering whales at any time — we observe them all year round. Some whales live permanently in the Barents Sea, and some approach the shores on the way of migration. 

In addition to going to sea, there will be a hike through the natural park, where we will walk to the Dragon Beach and to the waterfall on the seashore, and a tour of the old Teriberka — we will see the cemetery of ships and the skeleton of a whale on the beach, we will look to feed the reindeer at the farm. On tours from mid-August to November, there is a great chance to see not only whales, but also the northern lights.
