What people are saying about Troms County

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.

Loved our snow shoe hike today. G was a great guide, very friendly and lots of knowledge of the local environment and wildlife. He judged the pace well and kept checking in to make sure we weren’t too hot or cold. It was great to be up in the hills despite poor visibility. The cinnamon bun was a great treat at the end too. Highly recommend this trip :)

Unforgettable experience of this hike with the Husky.. the dogs are adorable. The very friendly staff (multilingual) with a good typical Lavvo meal by the fireside. Lots of interaction with the dogs: preparation, hiking, feeding and lots of caresses...

It was fun to snowshoeing. Our tour guide is very friendly and helpful during our trip.

Fantastic place. Absolutely a must if you are in Tromsø.
