2. Lofoten Islands, Norway
If you want to see Orcas, the Lofoten Islands, high up above the Arctic Circle in Norway is the place to be. Killer whale watching here is so good because between October and mid-January, the whales are feeding on the massive shoals of Atlantic herring, and it all happens just 6 miles offshore. Add in the possibility that you might get to see the Northern Lights and you can look forward to a magical whale watching trip.
