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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

We wanted to experience orcas (killer whales) up close and found that Tysfjord Turistsenter offered this, at least thats what we thought. Because their really just more like a distributor, which comes with a premium. We had to drive 4 hours to Andenes, the destination for the safari, with very little information from the Tysfjord Turistsenter (other than what was...

Hello Sverre, and thank you for review ! I am sure it will help us to improve. First of all I beliewe you have looked at our web page where it sais that we drive for killer whale safari 150 km to the staring point. That is because of migration of herring. Tysfjord Turistsenter AS is the first operator in...

Nothing but good things to say about the place. Done an amazing whale safari, followed by Northen lights tour. Also managed to squeeze in some quadbiking in the snow. Very friendly staff. Much thanks to Edmundus for arranging a great trip

We stayed for one night on our way north, in one of the hotel rooms. The twin room was a decent size, clean, with a good shower. There's a shop next door which is quite small but fine for buying food for lunch etc. We didn't have a chance to do any of the activities while there, but the surrounding...

Standard Norwegian breakfast, coffee a bit poor. If you are getting sheets and breakfast it costs almost the same to get a 'hotel room' than it does for a cabin. The hotel rooms weren't anything special though.

Stayed here for one night as part of an organised tour of Scandinavia in June 2014. We were only really passing through on our way up to the far north of Norway but this hotel-cum-motel was a welcome resting point. The hotel itself is just off the E6 and is in the most amazing bay (check out the photos). We...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
