Activities in Northern Norway

Northern Lights

The Northern Lights have fascinated people throughout history and continue to do so. We have developed and produced a series of quality aurora activities for you.

Today, the aurora borealis draws people from all over the world to the Arctic for chases in the hope of seeing this natural phenomenon and taking home a Northern Lights photo.

Whale watching

Generally, in the winter months of November to January, whales can be spotted in the fjords in Troms (orcas and humpback whales mainly).

Whale watching is one of the most popular tours departing from Tromsø and heading to the coastal area where whales have been spotted. Book as soon as possible as this is one of our best sellers. Don’t miss the chance to see these beautiful huge marine mammals.

Dog Sledding

Go on a dog sledding tour and ride through the winter wonderland of Northern Norway! A trip above the Arctic Circle is incomplete without going on a husky sledding adventure.

Experience a unique way of winter transport traditionally developed by Northern Indigenous peoples. About six dogs are tied in pairs to a single towline. The towline is then attached to the sled that the dogs pull across the snow.

Our dogs (Alaskan huskies) are ultimate runners and they will love taking you across the Arctic wilderness. You even get to drive your own husky sled: mushing is an experience of a lifetime!

You can join one of our husky tours from Tromsø or Narvik.

Reindeer & Sami Culture

The indigenous Sami people and their reindeer have been living and working on the land for centuries. It’s only in recent times that the Sami have invited guests to be part of their life. But who are the Sami? Why are reindeer so popular in Norway? Learn more about the Sami people and their culture, where are they from and why are they so important?

Feed their reindeer, enjoy a traditional Sami lunch, go on a reindeer sledding experience, see the Northern Lights in the evening at a reindeer camp surrounded by hundreds of reindeer, and enjoy storytelling around a bonfire in an authentic lavvu (traditional Sami tent).

Grab this opportunity and dive into their history, culture and cuisine at their authentic reindeer camps. They look forward to meeting you!


Snowmobile, snow scooter, Ski-Doo, or skimobile, whatever you call it, driving this motorized vehicle will be so much fun!

Snowmobiling was designed for winter travel on snow and ice and now has also become a hobby for many people in Norway. It is quite simple to drive, so during your snowmobile tour, you will quickly get the hang out of it!

Go on an adventure around the stunning winter Arctic landscape and enjoy the best views of the mountains during the day or go at night to admire the beautiful Northern Lights.

We have guided snowmobile trips from Tromsø in the Lyngen Alps and Signaldalen areas.
