Full description

Based in Lyngen near Tromsø, visit Camp Troll and experience a day of exploration, excitement, and fun on a snowmobile safari. Ride your own snowmobile beneath giant mountains and learn how these spectacular summits inspired Norwegian Folklore.

Depart from Tromsø city center by bus which will take you to Breivikeidet where you’ll board the ferry as a foot passenger (included). Get met on the other side at Svensby for further transport.

On arrival at base camp, get welcomed by your guide and listen as they detail practical Instructions on how to handle a snowmobile. Watch a safety demonstration and then get changed before heading out.

Drive your snowmobile in pairs (one driver and one passenger) and get the opportunity to switch drivers at the halfway point. Travel deep into nature whilst exploring the mythical world of trolls on a scenic trail through the Lyngen Alps.

Enjoy time in the beautiful scenery and take pictures, keeping an eye out for the magical trolls you’ll be learning about. Later, head back to the base camp to enjoy a hot meal served around the fire before you depart.

With a full stomach, return to the ferry after your tour, where you will return to Tromsø.

    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!

    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!

    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!
