All about the trip
The fjords, inlets, villages, and sandy beaches located a short drive outside Tromsø is an absolutely stunning region that we love to explore with travelers from all over the world. The benefit of venturing into nature on this tour is that we can show you the most amazing places in the area, guide you and your small group along the way, while keeping you warm and comfortable in one of our modern minibuses. We have found that many travelers want to get out of the city, and explore the epic nature in the area, but do not know where to travel to, nor have any way of getting there. We have created this tour to show you some of the most special fjords in the area in a comfortable, and genuine setting.
Our guides know the area well and love to show you our favorite places while providing history and local knowledge along the way. It’s a tour for the entire family, and you will get the opportunity to ask questions, take pictures, and stretch your legs in these amazing arctic environments that we love so much.
During the tour, we will stop for coffee and tea and a light meal at one of our favorite spots. We will provide warm safety suits, gloves and boots to make this Arctic experience as comfortable as possible. The car is always warm and if you are interested in taking some photos when we stop you can borrow our tripods for free. We always keep the groups small (up to 15 people) for you to get the personal experience and connection with our guides that we strive for.
Before the tour takes off we meet up at our base camp in central Tromsø for a briefing and introduction to the area we will explore for the day. The bus will pick you up outside of our basecamp so there is no need to walk far or get cold on the way. After the tour, you can enjoy the warm lounge at our base camp for as long as you wish, where you can charge your camera for the evening and plan your next “golden moment” in the arctic.
During the tour, we will take you to 3 main spots located on the island of Kvaløya.
Our first stop is Ersfjord, a local coastal village traditionally a fishing village – now a stunning fjord popular for visitors, and great for those looking to take photos.
The next location we will take you to is Sommarøy, a small island connected to Kvaløya via a bridge. Sommarøy is known for its stunning nature with crystal clear blue water and sandy beaches with peak mountains in the background which gives you a dramatic view of the Arctic landscape.
The last stop for the route is Hella, where we can find old rock carvings. The fjord side road passing through Hella is a treat for all senses. During one of the steps above, we will serve a light picnic consisting of wraps and hot drinks. Depending on time, we may make a few other stops at photogenic locations and if you are lucky we may spot reindeer, moose, eagles and other wildlife along the way.
