iI was a senior solo traveller on this trip. Well worth every penny. Pick up in the mini bus was no hassle, and there were 13 of us in a bus which could hold more, so plenty of room. Good company and an excellent guide who was very knowledgeable, and spoke very good English. The tour was made better by good weather, and although the roads were icy, travelling was fine and we got to see reindeer, fjords, mountains, and generally beautiful scenery. Hot drinks and sandwiches on a frozen beach were very welcome as it was cold but generally clear. Great group of people, great trip and well organised.

This was a great minibus experience. We only had 4 people, with our guide Charlie, and driver Henrich, so it felt like a private tour. They took us to beautiful spots around Kvaloya and Sommeroy, with plenty of stops for photos and to climb a windy hill for a great view. We didn't see much wildlife except for a reindeer herd in the distance, but still the scenery was fantastic.

It was a top excursion. Due to the good weather there was a lot to see along the way. We often stopped to take pictures and a very good picnic / lunch was arranged. Definitely recommended to book this excursion when you are in Tromsø! Beautiful, luxurious bus, nice companions who really did their best to show us as much as possible. So great!
