This was our second self driving dog sled experience and it was fair but not a stellar. We did a daytime tour as our last one in Kirkenes had been a night tour. My thoughts:
1. The dog kennel area was filthy! I didn’t even...More
As part of a Viking Cruise adventure we selected a reindeer ride through the woods. So, on this cold, snowy night we dressed for the weather and headed out for an experience of a lifetime! After greeting the deer we "boarded" our sleigh. Although I...More
We wanted a longer dogsledding experience, not just playing with puppies, so we booked this Northern Lights tour with dog sledge, a ~2-hour out-and-back on 2-man wooden sleds pulled by 6 harnessed dogs. Our group was small, with just 5 people plus our guide/trainer, on...More
OMG, Rhian’s voice was so pleasant! She and Kjetil were our guides for the tour. My wife and I ended up having a private snowshoeing adventure with Kjetil. He was such a pleasure to chat with during our trek. We reached the beach then turned...More
I had driven a snowmobile 40 years ago on a frozen lake and enjoyed it, so having a chance to drive one again was exciting. I had no idea that driving it in deep snow in the mountains of Norway would be totally different and...More

The glacier was amazing and the route leading to it was extremely beautiful. The company, Aurora Alps, provided crampons, harnesses, ropes and hiking poles so we could walk safely on the glacier. The guide, Asbjorn, knew the glacier and route well, pointing out landscape features...More
First of all, I needed really long to find the actual company here on Tripadvisor to leave a comment to the right company, as they now carry the name Aurora Alps.
We went with three persons to do the dog sledding with Aurora Alps. Stunning...More
As we were not able to rent a car we choose to trust a tour to see reindeers... what a big mistake we made. First of all, the tour is not located in Lyngen Alps but in Tromsø Golfklubb. Secondly staff is not so welcoming...More
