What people are saying about Lyngen Alps

This was an absolutely extraordinary trip that I will never forget. From the ferry cruise over the Fjord to get to the Lyngen Alps, to the courtesy, frendliness and professionalism of the staff of the Camp Troll team, everything was perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed my first time ever on a snowmobile. The mountains were just enthralling and they take you on a very full course all around the edge of the Lyngen Alps. Everything is there for you, including any extra layers, boots, the whole works. It felt like such a full day and was so satisfying. I wanted to immediately do it all again! Hopefully will one day!

This was one of our main highlights in Tromso! The tour was perfectly organized, the guide was very kind and so enthusiastic! The views were stunning and it was so much fun to ride the snow mobile. We could drive there for many hours more, we enjoyed every single minute. THANK YOU, we will never forget this amazing experience!

The activity was great fun, but I was absolutely blown away by the scenery. The guides are very welcoming and they gave great instructions. We were also lucky that we got to meet some friendly huskies during the trip through the valley. I'd go again tomorrow, if I could. It was fantastic!

It was a relaxed, no stress activity. Competent guides that know their stuff and put you at ease. A good sense of humor. It was a smaller group witch we appreciated very much. Équipement ans snowmobiles in top condition. Very clean place.

Super organized. We were absolutely thrilled. Thank you for the great experience.
