Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Northern Norway has a unique nature, which changes with varying colours and light of the four seasons. This tour takes you right in the middle of these amazing landscapes at night time. The tour starts from Tromsø city center, from where we'll head to the coast, west side of Tromsø. The group size is maximum 8 people, which guarantees an intimate and cosy experience for everyone.

    We drive to the countryside of Tromsø, where we have picked the best destination for the hiking depending on the weather and the season. After the ride in beautiful landscapes stretch your legs on a nice walk up to a small mountain. The nature offers you an unforgettable experience, which you can feel with all your senses. During the hiking you can see some wild life, pick berries and on the summit eat with an amazing view and the colours of a never-ending sunset.

    This is totally worth doing although it may throw off your efforts to get acclimated to the time zone if you have just flown in. But do it anyway! Our wonderful guide Alex came with a map and options for what we wanted to do. It was customized to our needs and fit us perfectly.

    I had a great time hiking to the top of the mountain at Rekvik to catch the view of the midnight sun over the horizon. Though it was a cloudy night with rain, and the sun was not out at its fullest glory, we managed to get some glimpses of the sun rays through the clouds, and

    The guide we had was Virgil, a very friendly, nonchalant guy who we went into the real wilderness, untouched by others. Poorly, the weather was pretty bad, even started to hail on us on top of the mountain, which left us unable to start a bonfire and enjoy the view atop the

    We were picked up on time by Delphin. We were a small group (6 people plus 2 guides). We went to mountain not too far away (about 30 min) and were outfitted with snow shoes. We began our ascent of 350 km. As we climbed the sky cleared and the stars and moonlight were
