Full description

Join an unforgettable snowmobile safari above the Arctic Circle. Experience the magical winter landscape and the fun of snowmobiling. If you are really lucky the Northern Lights will be dancing above you all evening.

Start with pickup from central Tromsø and embark on a 90-minute scenic drive to the wilderness center at Camp Tamok. Upon arrival, you will be directed to the equipment room, where you will be provided with warm clothes and shoes for the day.

Go through safety instructions and have a practical demonstration on how to drive the snowmobile. Drive in pairs with one driver and one passenger per snowmobile and plenty of opportunities to switch places during the two-hour snowmobiling adventure.

Travel between the snow-covered mountains up to a frozen lake. Lake Finn marks the halfway point of our snowmobiling adventure and is a good place to take photos and play in the snow. After driving back down the trail and parking the snowmobiles, tuck into a hot meal in a traditional north Norwegian setting around the open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. After relaxing and warming up, it is time to head back to Tromsø and tick another adventure off your bucket list.

    After a bus transfer of about 1h30, you arrive in a wild camp where you are very well received. A hot jumpsuit and accessories and let's go for the (very simple) instructions! We were very lucky because there was a nice layer of fresh snow, it was extraordinary! Very attentive guide who adapts speed and course according to the level of the group. On the way back, local stew in Lavaud with a hot drink and a wood fire... Out of time and extraordinary! And joining the bus: aurora borealis!!! Magical ! Many thanks !

    It was super cool and unforgettable. I rode the entire time and my partner sat in the back. However, a change is often possible. Driving was really great fun, but also required a little bit of strength in the breath to keep the mobile on course. But everything is absolutely possible. First we considered whether it really is the case as described in some comments. "Chug in a convoy at max. 11 km/h." It was absolutely not like that. I think you need to check your expectations. It's not going to be a crazy solo adventure tour where you race up a mountain alone or something. Of course it's a convoy because you drive at night and you really don't see anything and you wouldn't have any orientation if it were otherwise. But the distance is so big that you can sometimes race. Of course, the speed adapts to the group. When everyone feels safe (which was the case with us) we sometimes reached 60 km/h. All in all very very cool!

    Super organization before departure in Tromso. The bus ride in new coaches is entertaining at 1.5 hours. At Camp Tamok, everything is friendly and organized. The ride is about 10 km and takes about 1.5 hours. There are also super nice guides and warm clothes for the ride. Instruction was perfect and the tour was a lot of fun.... Gladly again next time...
