"The views are amazing – a great activity if you are looking for something to do in the day" - Jessica, USA, Tripadvisor review
The breathtaking fjord landscapes in the Tromsø region are some of the finest Norway can offer. This is among the wildest and most beautiful nature experiences you can find. And believe us, you would want to see this from land. That is where you get the whole story – and often the best photo opportunities!
Touch the Fjords
This trip is a real and grounded experience, as well as it could make you feel weightless. It might even leave you speechless or talkative! The extreme combination of mountain and sea is second to none. We make a lot of short and long stops, and we experience wild nature, local culture and charming small towns. Quite often wild animals cross our path. Sometimes even whales can be seen or heard.
Enjoy and learn
This is a comfortable, small group trip by car. We will stop and experience the surroundings, walk on foot, take photos, eat snacks and enjoy the scenery.

Øystein, owner: "After spending 25 years exploring this amazing county by car, skis, sea kayak, cycling, and walking, I know where the nicest spots are, where the landscape creates quality pictures. We will show you these places".

5-6 hours, but it will vary depending on the weather. Can be shorter in the dark season, then appr. 4 hours.
In the winter normally around 10 am, because many of you need to sleep longer after a late northern lights chase the night before. Parts of December we will start between 0900-0930 am because of lack of daylight.
DROP-OFF: Usually between 3 and 4 PM.
Maximum 14 participants is recommended and normal on our trips, but not absolute. A small group allows more freedom and a better overall experience. We can take bigger private groups on request.
- A warm expedition thermal suit
- Warm boots (Only adults)
- Warm mittens (Do not wear gloves, since the fingers are separated and get cold.)
- Hats (although we recommend you bring your own)
- Wool socks (Do not wear cotton socks!)
POSSIBLE TO GO ON NORTHERN LIGHTS CHASE THE SAME DAY
Yes, many guests do that. We will be back in the city long before your northern lights trips starts, so you will have time to eat and relax before your northern lights chase.
We cannot guarantee anything regarding weather. The coastal weather in the northern parts of Norway is fascinating, as we often can experience the different weather conditions of a whole year during one day.
DARK SEASON DAYTRIPS HAVE ENOUGH DAYLIGHT
Enough daylight all December too, and seeing the unique dark season colors in the sky when it changes from daylight to dark, also with chances of northern lights mid day, can be very rewarding.
AN EXCITING TRIP
You will experience a comfortable and exciting fjord excursion. In a slow and suitable pace, we will show you a beautiful piece of Norway. Welcome.
FJORD EXCURSION THE DAY AFTER A NORTHERN LIGHTS TRIP IS NO PROBLEM
Some nights we chase deep into Finland or Sweden, far away from Tromsø. This means a long chase, and late in bed, often after 02-03 am. That is why we start our Fjord Excursion late, so you get more time to sleep.
HOTEL: We show you which hotels we recommend in the booking process.
