    What to Expect
    Northern Norway has a unique nature, which changes with varying colors and light of the four seasons. This tour takes you right in the middle of these amazing landscapes. The tour starts from Tromso city center, from where you will head to the coast on the west side of Tromso. With a small-group size (maximum eight people), you will have an intimate and cozy experience.

    You will be driven to the countryside of Tromso. Depending on the snow conditions and weather, the walk will be done either with or without snowshoes. In the autumn months (October and November) you'll get to enjoy the colorful countryside before it is covered with a thick layer of snow. In the winter, the landscape will be white with snow to play in.

    After the drive stretch your legs on a nice walk up a small mountain. The Arctic nature offers you an unforgettable experience. During the walk you can view wildlife and when you reach the summit you will be provided lunch. Your guide will take photos on the tour and share them with you after the trip, free of charge. Just enjoy the hike.

    We were picked up from the scandic hotel opposite Radisson Blu. The nice thing about these tours is that max group size is 8 (6 of us on our tour) so it doesn’t feel at all touristy. The guide picks the location based on weather and personal choice. Our guide Karolis picked a

    Thank you for the feedback! We love receiving feedback from our guests, it motivates our team during these cold winter months to give our guests the best possible experience with us. Of course, as you know we can not promise anything to do with the weather (like good snow for snowshoeing or Aurora activity) but we can promise a positive experience; home-made meals, hot chocolate and biscuits - all made freshly (and with love)  in our Owls Nest. It has been a pleasure to have you on tour with us and we hope to welcome you back to Tromso again one day. Thanks again!

    We were a bit apprehensive before this excursion as we had never tried it before and had no idea what it entailed. We needn't have worried - we spent the most perfect half day snowshoeing up a mountain surrounded by fjords, frozen lakes and beautiful scenery. The sun shone and

    It was very nice to have a friendly and passionate guide who enjoyed the trip as much as we did ! The walk was in a non-tourist location with awesome landscapes. All the necessary (and more) equipment was in the van (boots, thermal suits, gloves, snowshoes...). Moreover, before
