What people are saying about Troms County

The guides were helpful and informative. The husky’s were super cute and the lunch provided was delicious! We had two children with us, aged 11 and 13, and we all thought it was our favourite outing of the holiday so far. Brilliant that boots and over clothing were provided, as our kids were rolling around in the snow with the husky puppies and it meant they didn’t get wet or cold. Highly recommend!

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.
