What people are saying about Tromsø

The two guides were fantastic, really chatty and knowledgable, the activity was great. All the gear was provided and was just the right length of time. After we got to see the dogs and got to see them go off pulling the sleds which was really good to see. Overall a really fantastic morning out, well worth the money. Highly recommended

We had a brilliant time skiing. The guides were so helpful and patient. The route was ideal as an introduction to skiing and the scenery great. We also loved being able to see the dogs when we got back. Couldn’t recommend this enough.

Excellent tour. We snowshoed for about 2 hours. It was a bit physical at first but then got used to it. The landscape is stunning. After the tour we had a hot chocolate and saw the huskies. Highly recommended.

Spectacular to go with children, mine from 9 and 11, tranquility, dream landscapes and super friendly guides, they explain everything, from animal tracks to any detail, recommended.

We really enjoyed the walk and our guide was fantastic, communicative and engaged in informing us about everything in our surroundings.
