Glacier Walk

Searching Availability...

Explore the magnificent world of glaciers with this guided adventure.

We will take you to the unique Steindalsbreen, a 10000 year old glacier which lies on the west side of Storfjord in the Lyngen Alps. Glaciers are a natural phenomenon and it is truly amazing to walk on the surface ice which formed in the Late Stone Age.

As this ice flowed over time, deep crevasses, canyons, sculptures, waterfalls and blue pools are formed – the variety of the glacier is countless!

Your specialised and local guide will share his knowledge with you and guide you safely through these natural wonders.

Very beautiful and unforgettable experience. We were a family of 6, none of us have previous experience in sledding. This tour is recommended if you are of average fitness and are up for a challenge. And of course if you really want to see the beautiful mountains in Tromsø. Special thanks to Nina and Ararad for this experience

One Day of Active Dog Sledding is an interesting program. However, the communication skill of this company needs to improve. We were told to be pick up at the Radisson Blu Hotel at 8:45 am. We arrived at 8:35 am and waited for 30 min with no one to pick up us. We call the company and were told that the pick up bus had left at 8:30 am, and the company will not arrange any pick up for us regardless that we have paid transport fee. We have to spend Kr 978 to take a taxi to go to the dog sledding site. The company should have a guest list to check if confirmed guests all show up. If any confirmed guest is missing, the driver should enter the hotel lobby and have a call to find the guest. Also, the driver should follow the pick up time schedule listed on-line.

Absolutely the BEST way to experience husky sledding. The location is absolutely fantastic and the staff-Nina, and tore were very helpful and wonderful, and a special thanks to our guide Ararad who took us sledding and took care of us. What sets this tour and staff apart from the rest is that they've designed it in a way so that you are having a proper go at sledding over a long stretch of scenic location, gets you really involved. The team are seriously passionate about the dogs and sledding and they will tell you the history behind things, their own personal journey that brought them to be mushers, and it's by far the best experience to have. Thank you team! We had the most wonderful time.

We went first on the sea kayaking tour, and then the glacier walk the day after that - and i would definitely recommand both of them! Really active days, we were amazingly surprised by the quality of both tours & Tore is very interesting.

What an incredible experience! If you ever entertained the idea of trying sea kayaking, but had second thoughts, give this tour a chance! Our guide, Tore, was a certified instructor and he ensured we knew what to do before we set out. He was very knowledgeable and at no time did I ever feel in danger. For him safety was paramount. He was also a great story-teller and it was evident he loved his country and loved sharing it with others. The scenery was indescribably beautiful- the majestic fjord, the still green waters reflecting the mountains like a mirror, huge Norwegian jellyfish, and even a bottle nose dolphin came up for air near us. This experience of kayaking above the Arctic Circle in untouched beauty, is one I will never forget! Thank-you!

Thank you for an incredible trip and an unforgettable life experience. I'm so delighted I was able to track you down to return for a second instalment of one of the most inspiring and challenging holidays! Having been on the 6 day dog sledding expedition before I knew a little of what to expect but you took this to a whole ‘nother level with your expertise and drive to show us what was special to you. Your knowledge of this land is remarkable!As well as the scenery and camping locations you guided us to, one salient point I forgot to thank you for was creating the most graceful looking camps. Laying a trail, allowing us to sweep around to shape a gathering of people that could in fact, compliment the surrounding landscape. Just Brilliant! You took a bunch of people of different strengths and ensured you helped people at their weakest points and gave responsibility to those who wanted it. Your equipment is nothing but the best! Stylish and very comfy.... We looked good! Of course technically you cant get better for these conditions.I cant forget to mention the welcome we got on arrival, your premises is wonderful, what a phenomenal view! Such a happy welcome with a real personal and authentic approach. I can’t wait to come back next year for my 3rd instalment and bring friends. Also to try your kayaking trips in the midnight sun. I wish you guys could lead me through all my adventures!
