It was amazing, the people were so friendly and the dogs were so damn cute! Ararad was really knowledgeable and made it a really good trip. Would definitely recommend this company! Thank you all for an incredible experience 🙂

We had a great time sledding with these guys. I had been very unwell so was poorly and grumpy, but they were so kind to me. We hadn't had much snow but they took us higher up, to a snowy part and found a way to get us out there with the dogs. Thank you all at Active Tromso!

Had an absolute amazing time husky training! The dogs were so hard-working, eager for the run, and they were the cutest things ever! We took turns so everyone in the group had the opportunity to steer. Our guide Tore was very experienced, and had many awesome stories to tell. Highly recommend this if you're in Tromsø.

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!
