Beautiful complex in a breathtaking landscape! A sleigh ride could also be booked on site, but we decided to stay with the cute animals. It was very nice to feed and pet the loving animals. We had enough time to take great photos and always had the opportunity to warm up by the fire or in the hut. Everything was taken care of in the hut after feeding. There was a traditional meal and plenty of different drinks. The guides were very attentive - almost every wish was fulfilled. Our guide John gave us a great and interesting insight into the life and culture of the Sami. Thank you for this wonderful trip! We can only recommend this trip, as its comfort puts it a bit ahead of the larger other providers.

My daughter and I really enjoyed this introduction to cross country skiing. Our guides Magnus and Julie were very patient and helped make the experience a positive one. The equipment provided is excellent, the actual skiing took around 1.5 hours, which is plenty for a first time. We had the chance to visit the Alaskan Huskies which are based at the same activity centre. Tea, coffee and cake was also provided. A very professional and efficient operation run by polite, friendly staff.

Amazing and relaxing sightseeing tour through the fjords in a beautiful classy ship. Sachi and Kenneth attention during the whole trip couldn’t have been better! Would recommend this 100% to enjoy Tromsø incredible landscape
