Full description
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, 8 people maximum, you will have an intimate and cozy experience. 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 of 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 with lunch. Your guide will take photos on the tour and share them with you after the trip, free of charge. Just enjoy the hike.

Peter was very friendly and explained many interesting things about Tromsø and its nature, climate, people, fauna, etc. We walked with snowshoes through an incredibly beautiful landscape. When we reached the top of the small hill we went up to, overlooking the snow-capped fjords of Tromsø, he gave us hot chocolate and some delicious cookies. Highly recommended!

There were 7 of us and suddenly the small group was just us with our guide. Perfect. Very friendly guide of Italian origin, who knew Tromso and the region very well. Activity on I recommend even if I will have hiked a little more but everything was in accordance with the reservation

Ein tolles Erlebnis :) Ich hatte großes Glück mit dem Wetter; es hatte am Vortag kräftig geschneit und am Tag schien die Sonne. Man wird mit einem Kleinbus in Tromsø abgeholt, und mit einem kurzen Fotostop an einem Fjord geht es zum Ausgangspunkt der Tour. Unser Tourguide Peter hat viel über die Umgebung erzählt und alle Fragen geduldig beantwortet. Die Wanderung ging auf einen kleinen Berg (ca. 130m Höhendifferenz) mit einem phantastischen Ausblick auf die Berge und zwei Fjorde. Peter hat dort auch von jedem Teilnehmer tolle Fotos gemacht; so etwas bekommt man mit keinem Selfie hin... Am Gipfel gab es ein Sandwich und eine richtige heiße Schokolade (kein Instant-Pulver-Zeugs...) Die Zeit verging wie im Flug. DIe reine Wanderung hat hin und zurück so um die zwei Stunden gedauert; Die Gruppe war nicht sehr groß (acht Leute aus aller Herren Länder) und sehr nett. Wie gesagt, ein tolles Erlebnis, was ich jederzeit wiederholen würde.
