available; occasionally, the tour extends to the Finnish borders.

the countryside outside of Troms.

Our local guides will pick you up in the city center and take you to beautiful
mountains, fjords, and valleys to begin the tour. During the visit, you could
encounter North Norwegian natural life and lovely landscape, assuming the
weather conditions permit it.
