The hike into the midnight sun was definitely the highlight of my Norway trip! Already on the drive to the starting point of the hike we were able to marvel at the incredible nature and our guide gave us a lot of interesting information about the country and its people. The hike itself and especially the view were simply fantastic and indescribable!!! After the hike there was a very lovingly prepared and delicious snack and on the way home we were even able to marvel at reindeer on the side of the road :) It was an all-round perfect trip and our guide created a great atmosphere with his open nature . Thank you for making the excursion possible despite our very small group size and for the wonderful evening in the midnight sun :)

It was lovely to be surrounded by so many friendly dogs. We stood by the fireplace(outside) eating marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate hopping for some activity on the sky, no Aurora that night but a lot of shooting stars ✨ Diner was interesting.

The seats are gorgeous. My guide was professional and knowledgeable. Long activity that is good for the body and mind. Pure air and unspoiled nature. The fjords I have seen are spectacular worthy seen from the heights.

The Huskies were so playful, the cloudy weather was perfect for this tour, amazing how strong they are, the guides were super nice, providing snacks and drinks and also a meal after the hike

It was a great experience :) I would definitely do it again.
