Snowmobile safari in Tromso area
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.
The excursion bus will pick you up in the centre of Tromso in the late afternoon, then through remote Arctic areas outside the city lights, with chances of spotting the Northern Lights en route.
The excursion bus will bring you back to the centre of Tromso after the excursion.
