What people are saying about Troms County

I would highly recommend this tour! Firstly, is the only tour I found that does smaller groups and it felt much more intimate. Carter ,the guide and the owner was absolutely amazing. Very hospitable with great knowledge of the area - and the best fish soup maker in Tromso :) The fjord views were breathtaking. Even the bitingly cold temperatures could not ruin it for us - we had thick warm suites and hot soup.

Nick was very good and explained all about local culture and history. We had very good sunny day after couple of rainy day, trip made natural wow factor as we go. Nick tried to capture our photos as well as given opportunity to take ample photos for our own. Various photo stops was great considering sunny day. Snow covered mountains and fjords was looking great .

My daughter and I were in a group with 4 French speakers and we are English speakers. The guide did a fantastic job guiding in both French and English! He was very concerned that everyone have a great tour. We made extra stops because we saw reindeer 3 different times. The scenery was awesome. Overall it was very enjoyable and I would define recommend.

Highly recommended!! We have sailed with Artíc Norway… Very comfortable, very safe and with beautiful views. The captain prepared us a very good salmon soup.!

An amazing day with our guide, even though the weather was against us, we kept moving and found sunshine and amazing views.
