Snowshoewalk, Northern Lights and accommodation.
A great way to spend a day in the Arctic with the locals. This is a private tour for a couple with nature based activities and accommodation in a transparent cabin.
We are located in Nordkjosbotn, one hour drive from Tromsø toward inland. To make this tour more Eco Friendly, you can arrive to Nordkjosbotn by local bus from Tromsø, departure every day from Tromsø at 10:30AM (10:30). We can also organize private transport if needed.
We will meet you at the Nordkjosbotn busstation. You will be introduced to snowshoeing, a winter activity which is really easy to learn and therefore suitable for anyone in reasonable shape. We will adjust our walk depending on how demanding activity you like to have. Climb up to the mountains or just have a relaxed walk in the valley. You will be well guided along the way, through snowcovered landscapes. You can also change or combine snowshoewalk to icefishing, skiing or hiking. Icefishing season is normally from January to May. Do not hesitate to take contact if you want to change activity.
After the snowshoewalk we will arrive to our camp, where you can get some hot drinks and just relax, or you can try out cross-country skiing, tobogganing or kick-sledding while waiting for dinner. We will provide you with all equipment needed for the activities.
For the dinner we will serve you homemade, local food; fish or meat with vegetables. If you are vegetarian or allergic, please let us know beforehand.
After the dinner, it is time to make sure you have the right settings on your camera in case the Northern Lights appear. When clear sky, you can see the Northern Lights from the camp. We will be guiding you and take some pictures and videos with our equipment as well. Roy has over ten years experience in Northern Lights guiding, and will share of his knowledge and tips. In addition to traditional pictures, we also have equipment to take 360 pictures and 4k video of Northern Lights, if the conditions allow us to. All the pictures and videos are included in the price. If it is cloudy on our camp and there is possibility to find clear sky other places, you can hire me for NOK 1000 per hour to drive out for chasing the Aurora. Most of the times we will find clear sky within two hours drive one way.
We will serve the breakfast in the morning before bringing you back to buss station in Nordkjosbotn. The bus will leave at 08:25AM (08:25) and arrives Tromsø Prostneset at 09:25AM (09:25).
