Overview
See the best of Norway's Arctic wilderness on this guided tour from Tromso. Led by a guide with deep knowledge of the landscape and wildlife behavior, look out for reindeer, whales, and eagles as you travel through beautiful landscapes filled with snow-capped mountains, fjords, and forests. Group size is capped at eight people to ensure an intimate experience.
Highlights
  • Arctic sightseeing tour: Look for wildlife with a knowledgeable guide
  • Receive souvenir photos by email afterward
  • Small group size ensures personalized attention
  • Enjoy a homemade picnic in the wild
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from central Tromso. Meet your guide, settle into the vehicle, and head west of the city and into the Arctic wilderness. On the way to Kvaloya (or "Whale Island"), one of Norway's most stunning islands, there are plenty of opportunities to admire and take pictures of the fjords, mountains, beaches, lakes, forests, and small villages in the countryside outside of Tromso. Along the way, stop for a snack and a cup of hot chocolate as you take in the views and look for such wildlife as reindeer, seals, and eagles. With luck, you'll even see some of the humpbacks and orcas that give Whale Island its name. After you are dropped off back in central Tromso, your guide emails souvenir photos so you can remember a great day in the wild Arctic.
