The Ice Domes are definitely worth a visit. The works and ice sculptures are incredibly well designed and detailed. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to tell us a lot about Vikings and the Sami culture. In addition, I was very happy about the reindeer behind the house and about the vegetarian choice of food.

With tough weather in Tromso, our excellent guide (Lucia) took us all the way to the Finnish border where the sky finally cleared a little. Despite seeing only the faintest aurora, Lucia made the trip well worth it with her friendliness and deep knowledge of the area. 11/10!

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.

Despite the initial rain, our guide was very committed and tried hard and showed us the most important points of the city within 2 hours. There was also some interesting background information. Great, it was fun!

Friendly.. Must do when you are in Tromso. Equip yourself! It is very cold..
