Enjoy a relaxed morning, we start this tour at 11:00, from Tromsø centre.

During the polar night, the days are not dark. They are filled with exotic arctic colours, only made possible by the indirect light of the sun. Discover many types of blue or even a red glow on the horizon.

We welcome you on our safari by minibus to the coastal and island landscape west of Tromsø. As well as dramatic scenery, you will find traces of settlements going back thousands of years. Who were the people who came before us? Why did they come? Where did they live and how did they survive? Our dedicated and knowledgeable guide will answer these questions and many more in detail during the trip.

In the second part of the trip, we have a cosy indoor 2-course lunch, consisting of delicious homemade soup and cake, energizing your body and mind, while giving you a good authentic taste of the north. This is in a rather remote area, 40 min away from Tromsø. We add food as an important part of this tour, by visiting a local chef at her café and garden for an extensive lunch inside a warm lavvu with a bonfire. Our chef grows her own ingredients for the dishes and desserts, and where possible, harvested on her own fields, just in the backyard of her cafe. She also participates in the local "farmer's market", to bring products directly from the farmer to the customer and give them a short travel label.
