What you'll do

It's a shame to leave Tromsø without seeing spectacular Kvaløya. This island has everything that you need to witness in northern Norway. You will see iconic Ersfjord and other famous fjords. Unbelievable sandy beaches and crystal clear water will make you forget that you're actually above the Arctic Circle. Roadtrip is also endless possibility to spot arctic animals. Look around, cause often reindeers hide even between houses. Mooses, sea eagles, seals, otters live just next to the roads, if you know where to look for them. With our knowledge and experience, we will do our best to show you some of those species. We will have a few stops on viewpoints to make some great pictures. We are always happy to tell you more about norwegian culture and traditions. So you will learn why most of the houses are red and how people lived before in northern Norway. Most important, we prepare for you local food tasting with a cup of warm drink and of course some warm food as well. We would like to create some friendly, family atmosphere and show you our everyday's live and we hope also our culinary skills!

Me and my wife, we work as a northern lights guides in Tromso. Each season we see auroras almost everyday, but also for sure everyday we live in beautiful place and we would like to show you that.

We have travelled a lot and we took a part in many different tours (those good and those, which we rather don't want to remember). Finally we found out what is important and what makes experience unforgettable. That's why, we decided to create that tour. We offer you a tour by van to see the most unique landscapes around Tromso, so you don't need to look for a bus or public transportation to go outside the city.

    Rob was super friendly and thoughtful, we learnt more about northern Norway and enjoyed breathtaking scenery. His wife also whipped up the best vegetable soup I've ever tasted, alongside with a few traditional desserts. Overall a superb experience that everyone should sign up for when in Tromsø!!

    An absolutely amazing experience, even with a blizzard on going, Rob gave us one of the best experiences we could have asked for. He made sure we enjoyed ourselves while being safe, warm and entertained us immensely. He also served authentic Norwegian food, which was an incredibly unique experience.

    Ismael was our guide for the afternoon through the Fjords surrounding Tromso. The journey through the mountains was amazing and Ismael was a wonderful story teller. We made several stops and several different Fjords and even made a few extra stops while there was a break in the weather. One of which was to eat a lunch picnic on a snowy beach. It was a home cooked meal that was brought for us, so while we did not eat lunch at the house as advertised in the listing, we still had a delicious homemade fish stew on a sandy beach surrounded by snowy peaks. On our trip, we saw seals, otters, and reindeer. It was a great experience and I highly recommend to anyone wanting to see the local scenery.

    The tour was great! It provided another side of Tromso I didn’t know I needed to see. Everything was made easy so you are able to just enjoy. Definitely book this tour!

    Ishmael was a very kind guide, and the places we stopped for pictures were extremely gorgeous! Unfortunately I was dressed more for the temperature in Tromso than I was where we were traveling. That was my fault and I would just go sit in the van and warm up while people were still taking their pictures…no big deal. However the frustrating part came when I found out that the lunch we were supposed to have indoors (according to the trip description) was no longer going to be indoors due to COVID. I was very much looking forward to getting inside and warmed up even if for a short time. There had evidently been a change to that itinerary and it wasn’t reflected in the Airbnb listing. That was a key piece of information I would’ve liked to have known. Otherwise it was a nice day!
