Fantastic snowshoeing experience under the Northern Lights! Our lovely guide - Pol - made sure that everybody quickly felt at ease and had a nice time during our drive to the destination. Even though it was a windy evening, Pol knew which spot to pick, so that we were sheltered

Hello Anka_S_80, What a lovely feedback! Thank you! We just love to "spoil" our guests with our signature homemade biscuits and hot chocolate :) and we are really happy that you loved it. Pol has extensive knowledge about the area that allows him to choose good hiking spot even in challenging conditions. Great to hear that you had not only enjoyable hike but also got a bonus of northern lights. Wow! We are hoping to welcome you in Norway again!

Definitely one of the highlights of my stay in Tromso. Something magical walking under the stars, in knee high snow with beautiful scenery. Karolis was an entertaining and informative guide and nothing was too much trouble. We were lucky enough to see the Northern lights and

Max was a great guide, really cheery, knowledgeable and patient. We were in a small group, a couple of us found it very hard work; I've never done any snowshoeing before and am not a very sporty person, but Max was very encouraging and was able to adjust the tour to suit

Our group of 8, had an arctic and enjoyable evening with Carolis as our guide. He identified an excellent route to help us enjoy the expedition even in the conditions of considerable deep layer of fresh snow. We snowshoed for about 80 mins before breaking to take some photos

Hello Julia W, We have loved hearing feedback about how your experience with us was. We understand the frustration when mother nature has other plans in mind. The Star Walk is a night time snowshoeing hike, we are unable to control the clouds (unfortunately!) so we understand the disappointment you felt when there weren't stars, however sounds like you had extra fluffy snow, which would have made the snowshoeing much more enjoyable. Happy to hear that you enjoyed the factors that we can control, such as the service, our home-made food and your booking experience and we are happy to hear you had a positive experience with these points. These are all aspects that we can control and can improve on, feedback is so valuable to us. We hope to see you again in Tromso! Good luck with your future travels and adventures.
