Snowmobile safari in Tromso area

Snowmobile trip Arctic Norway by Orjan Bertelsen, Hurtigruten

Snowmobile safari & overnight in Tromso
Enjoy an adventurous Northern Lights excursion with snowmobile in the Arctic wilderness of the remote Tamok Valley, ideally located outside the city lights. Due to the geographical location, the climate is drier and colder than in Tromso, thus offering a maximum chance of seeing the amazing Northern Lights.

This is an optional add-on package with excursion & overnight in Tromso, which you can add to your  Northern Lights trip booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The additional night will be at the same hotel as the rest of the tour.
The add-on option will appear during the tour booking process, with prices and details.

What our customers say:

  • We just recently completed the Tromso, Northern Lights & Arctic Coast tour. I am writing to say what an amazing tour we had. Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all. I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.
