Tysfjord Turistsenter Hotel is located 250 km above Arctic circle. We are a base camp for wildlife/killer whale safaris in Norway, and offer modern hotel rooms with all conveniences. The hotel also has lecture and conference rooms, and a large, pleasant reception area with an open fireplace where flames burn most of the day. The complex is in a picturesque setting, looking onto the idyllic Storjordpolden and facing Norway's national mountain, the Stetind. Some of the world's most beautiful rock carvings are close by. The Tysfjord Tourist Centre is a hotel big enough to meet most requirements, but small enough to ensure personal contact and good service.

We stopped here one night before traveling to Lofoten. The room was OK, we got a good evening meal and the owner was very nice and professional. The location was quiet. I do think the owner make all the difference and make this hotel better than the structure it self.

Really needed an upgrade this whole place. The sink in the bathroom smelled like pee and the room was old and worn out furniture and a lamp that hanged the wrong way. The breakfast was dry bread and scrambled eggs that tasted like rubber. Will definitly never go here again.

Last minute decision to stop. Glad we did. Manager gave us a great greeting. Entry way, common area, bar and restaurant very nice. Rooms clean and comfortable. Slept well. Had drinks at bar and chatted with Mgr. Good guy. Filled us in on the area. It's a nice facility. Would stay again for sure.

Room was well used, staff was indifferent to us, dinning room food was average. During late night early morning, reception was closed (locked). We had dinner in the Hotel restaurant, food was just ok. No coffee in room. Room was quiet.

After a long drive from Bodo, the Turistsenter was a much needed respite from the long lonely road. Simple & basic, it had everything I needed for a good night's sleep. The views around Tysfjord are spectacular, especially in winter. Staff were friendly and welcoming. One down-point was the price which was expensive for what it offered but when you're the only hotel for miles you can get away with it I guess!

Some years ago there were Orcas in Tysfjord. Today, there are none. The Orcas moved North to Andenes and beyond. So there is no reason to go to Tysfjord. They still offer Orca tours, but they will just transfer you to Andenes. So you need to travel a long distance without any reason. Also, they cheat a bit with the prices! Hard negotiations afterwards, etc. So you should book there directly with Lofoten Oppleveser or Seasafari Andenes. Alternatively, check Pico Sport on the Acores or Wirodive, as they offer Orca camps and liveaboards in Northern Norway for Orca snorkeling. Besides, if you are passing Tysfjord, the hotel is ok (neither especially good or bad).

Response from Edmundas C, Manager at Tysfjord Turistsenter Hotel
Responded Oct 19, 2016
Hi AdmBreen(sorry, do not know your real name), Fist of all thank you for your review. Tysfjord Turistsenter AS(hotel) is the first company in Norway to offer killer whale safaris and snorkelling for over 20 years ago. Since the beginning we always hired Lofoten Opplevelser to run boats as a partner. Some years ago, when migration of herring have changed, after some research we have decided to run tours from Andenes and we brought Lofoten Opplevelser there. Our basecamp always was in Tysfjord. Part of our guests come directly to Andenes and part(mostly those who wish to experience also other activities, not only killer whale safaris) come here to Tysfjord. All this information we provide on our web page, facebook and by communicating on emails or phone. We even have our partner hotel in Andenes for those who wish to travel directly there. We even have a plan to run killer whale tours from Tromso(together with Lofoten Oppleveleser). Killer whales do not belong to Tysfjord, Andenes or Tromso and with our crew experience we are ready to follow where ever they migrate. It could be the same with northern lights. Some times we, and other operators in all northern Norway have to travel all night for many hundred km. to be able to find them. It is nature not zoo! I am not sure what you mean about cheating? If you stay in Tysfjord you pay for killer whale safari 200 NOK more then if you stay in Andenes because of travel costs(ferry and bus drive). I guess it is way cheeper then travelling to Andenes on your own with 2 flights from Oslo. One more thing.... for past couple years we observe big increasing of herring in Tysfjord and Vestfjord and most likely in couple years killer whales might be back in this area again. And what would you say if you travel to Andenes then? Blame Sea Safari? We can not predict nature so we try to be flexible what ever it brings. All the best from Tysfjord :)

Happened across this turissenter hotel after ferry crossing heading south on the E6. 10 minutes from the Skarbergt/Bognes ferry. The hotel offers rooms, chalets and camping. Camping facilities are situated at the rear of the main building, with male and female showers, laundry and drying room and a pretty well equipped kitchen room. Gorgeous view across the peninsula from the camping ground. Restaurant on site as well. We had a very nice meal in the evening, which didn't break the bank...although we didn't order alcohol. The staff were very kind and helpful as well as very patient with two non Norwegian speaking happy campers. There is free Wi-Fi available in and around the reception area.

We booked the killer whale snorkelling trip via email, two nights in a cabin and the snorkelling trip, expecting a nice stay and a cool orca experience. Little did we know that tysfjord offered so much more then that! Edmundas answered all emails happily and professionally throughout the booking and planning stage, we ended up booking one of the cabins by the water. We LOVED it! Let me put it down for you in an easy way: ACCOMMODATION: - lovely cabin for the three of us, nice shower and toilet, self contained with stove and fridge, wifi in the cabin (even though that wasn't even expected, so lucky us) - in the main hotel they had a bar and restaurant, with free coffee and tea. - next to the hotel there was a little shop, perfect for us making our own food in the cabin! STAFF: - the manager Edmundas was super enthusiastic about both whales, northern lights and the area in general. It was great to meet someone loving their job and it really made all of us even more happy - unfortunately I can't remember the names of the girls in reception but they made us feel just as welcome! And all of them joined us outside looking at the northern lights together. TOURS AND THINGS TO DO: - killer whale safari was amazing, they were hunting and we saw them all over the place! It's cold on the boat so put plenty of clothes on! But you will also be given warm clothes to put on under your dry suit. - northern lights, you could see them almost every night and one of the nights it covered almost the whole sky! Keep in mind that it's nature and none of the above experiences is a guarantee. Fortunately we got it all! - around tysfjord you can do plenty of hiking and it's a lovely area to explore on foot if you have a day over :) (which we had, coz we ended up staying an extra night because we loved the place to bits) - Edmundas was kind enough to let us try his six wheeler and that was SO MUCH FUN! No complaints what so ever! We drove from Sweden and arrived in tysfjord in the afternoon, and left with the on-time ferry three days later :) Thank you so much, all of you working there! Kristin, Darren and Danni

My daughter and I spent 3 nights at the Turistsenter. We were originally going to stay in the hotel itself but decided to move into one of the motel rooms, which was lovely and cosy, plus it meant that we could cook for ourselves. We did 3 trips with the Senter in total. 1) Saw us going to see the orcas. It was a very long trip and we had to get up early but it was certainly worth it. Not only did we see orcas we also saw humpback whales and a fin whale. 2) We did a Northern Lights trip, but unfortunately we didn't see anything due to the weather conditions. 3) We did a nature drive and got taken to a remote lighthouse and to an arty village. We were lucky enough to see 3 elks on this trip. We found the staff extremely helpful to us. It is a bit of a journey to get to the place, for us it involved - plane, bus and ferry - but we were picked up when we got off the ferry. We would definitely go back to the Senter again.
