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.

What a ride!!! We loved every second of it and the most amazing thing was the passion of everyone involved. From all the guides we’ve met to Tore you could see and feel how much they live what they do and that they are one big family with all their dogs. We were able to cuddle them and spend time with them to listen to all the stories and details afterwards warmed by a pit fire. Amazing. Our favorite Norway experience

We had an amazing experience at Active Tromsø. The dog sledding tours are well organized and their dogs are looking beautiful, healthy and happy. Will come back for sure if we visit Tromsø again.

we went husky sledding today! the pick up at the radisson blue hotel was perfectly on time. after a short ride (aprox. 35 min.) we arrived at the spot where we were going to meet the dogs! after getting into proper clothing (recommended) we got a short introduction into steering the sleigh. then you go on a trip of a lifetime! we have to say it is not always easy! our sleigh tilted over on the side after getting into the deep snow. but everything is fine with the help of your teammates! after the ride you are invited to drink a warm cup of tea or coffee and biscuits. you get to hear tons of stories of the owner himself and his experiences! wonderful experience with people who love to do what they are doing!

We went for a Christmas dog sled ride and were lucky enough to have Tore as our guide. We had a fantastic time! The trail was beautiful, the dogs were amazing and Tore’s conversation and experience are unique. After the ride we were able to play with the dogs and got to meet the rest of the teams that didn’t run today. The evening ended by warming up with a hot tea by the fire where we swapped stories with Tore and heard about his travels and amazing life experience. I highly recommend Active Tromsø.
