Hey hey, I'm visiting Tromsø & Kvaløya in the first week of December. I'm trying to put together my trip and would love some advice. My main wishes are to see whales, orca's and aurora borealis. I am a an amature photographer who loves nature and wild animals. I'm also thinking about dog sledding, snow scooter tour, bird watching tour. It's hard to choose, and I have a hard time getting a clear picture about the conditions in early December.
Questions I have:
- I wonder if it will be safe to drive (rent a car) as I'm not experienced at driving with snow and ice.
- Would you recommend a whale trip by zodiac or an other sort of ship?
- Should I worry about sea sickness?
- In general: what weather/darkness conditions should I expect?
Thanks so much in advance!
