Tromsø: Arctic Landscapes Sightseeing With Citizen Science

1. Tromsø: Arctic Landscapes Sightseeing With Citizen Science

The tour starts with pickup from Tromsø and heads out into the natural landscape of the surrounding fjords to the west side of the city. Immerse yourself in the stunning scenery around you and experience what the arctic wilderness has to offer - meanwhile contributing to scientific data collection! First stop is Kvaløya, one of Norway’s biggest and most beautiful islands. Here, take advantage of the viewpoint to admire the breathtaking landscapes of the fjords, mountains, beaches, lakes, forests, and small villages in the countryside of Tromsø. Listen to your guide talk about the native flora and fauna of the region and watch out for the variety of wildlife that lives here including otters, reindeer and sea birds. When you’ve built up an appetite from your wilderness exploration, enjoy a picnic in the peaceful atmosphere surrounded by the stunning views and sounds of nature. During the activity, we'll stop by the water and educate you on our ongoing micro-plastics project. Once you understand the scientific method we are following, we go together to the sand and put the method and knowledge into practice. We'll collect data samples together and the data will be collected and shared with our research partners. This data is important as it will be used to inform policy makers and research institutions about plastics in our oceans. Come with us and your vacation in Northern Norway will contribute to the fight against micro plastics!

Thank you for this wonderful experience! It was a very exciting and impressive day. The guide Gordon really made this trip something very special. We got to see a lot and will never forget the day :) It was very pleasant in the small group. We really had a lot of fun. The driver Andrej was also very nice and was able to tell a lot about the area. We can only recommend this excursion!

A beautiful tour of Kvaloya, along the coast. Magnificent views of beaches and mountains. Many thanks to our guide Antony, he informed us well and spoiled us with a delicious snack at the foot of the glacier. On the way back we saw reindeer up close. What an eventful trip. Thank you Antony

Great tour with Gordon. Although it was partly raining, our guide made the most of it. Interesting landscape, beautiful waterfalls and impressive the explanation and search for microplastics! Thank you Gordon

It was fantastic, the tour guide was brilliant and kept looking for best locations to see the Aurora and I as successful. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute of it.

Our guide, Anthony, gave us a short but intensive look at the region in an inspiring way. We are glad we booked this tour and can only recommend it.
