  • Day 2: Snowmobile Safari & Auroras

    Start the day by exploring Tromsø before your afternoon snowmobile tour. This excursion brings you up to heights of 875 metres above sea level with spectacular views of the Tromsø area. You might even have a chance to try your skills at ice fishing on the lake on top of the mountain, if time and weather permit.

    From the tour’s final destination, the Camp Tamok wilderness area, you will have another opportunity to look for auroras while enjoying a hearty dinner in a lavvu, a traditional Sami tent, prepared by the guide.

    Afterwards, you will be taken to the accommodation of your choice. Depending on whether you want a more social, more rugged overnight experience or private lodgings with more traditional furnishings, we offer you a number of exciting options at Camp Tamok, Please indicate your preference in our online booking process.

  • Day 3: Arctic Transport at its Best

    This is your chance to be a musher! Heading into the countryside after breakfast, you will learn the time-honoured Arctic tradition of dog-sledding with an experienced guide and a team of energetic huskies.

    After a light lunch at the kennel and a brief lesson on how to handle your sled and dogs, you get to drive for an exhilarating 16 km-long ride through some of northern Norway’s most beautiful and uninhabited landscapes. Later, return to Tromsø to spend the rest of the evening as you wish.

Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Wonderful experience!

Overall the trip was a wonderful experience. Tromso was beautiful. I have great admiration for the people of Norway and especially the fortitude of the Sami farmers working in temperatures as low as 50 degrees below zero. Many thanks again for helping us to arrange this trip.

Were not disappointed

The tours and guides were very good and the overall experience lived up to our expectations. We are celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary this year and have been promising to go to see the northern lights since we got married. We were not disappointed.

Exceeded my expectations

Excellent adventure. Each event started on-time and exceeded my expectations.

We had a blast

Our tour guide, from the Northern Lights Chase night, was a really good tour guide. He was friendly, nice, and funny. My husband and I had a blast riding with him in the van. My travel consultant, Bjarni is perfect, he answered all my questions in a timely manner and he was able to customized my itinerary to accommodate my stay for an extra night at the hotel.

Excellent speedy service

Really excellent holiday, thank you. We only booked a few days in advance and received excellent speedy service.
