Our hottest tip: Go on an organised tour with a local guide!

Explore the beautiful Tromsø region with those who know it best!

Our partners prioritise quality and use skilled local guides who always put the guest first. An organised tour with a guide provides you with security, enrichment, and access to the most fascinating stories. At the same time, you contribute positively to the local community you visit. Organised activities are the best choice, no matter what time of year you visit us. There are many reasons to choose a local guide – here are five of them!

1. You get inside tips and the best stories

Local guides know the Tromsø region like the back of their hand. Experience the hidden gems that aren't in guidebooks and hear the fascinating stories that add an extra dimension to your trip.

2. You enrich your cultural horizon 

Through local knowledge, you gain a much deeper understanding of the place you visit; the nature, wildlife, landscape, and history. Learn about Sami culture, the intriguing geology, and local traditions. The guides give you a chance to truly understand and appreciate what you see.

3. You contribute to the local economy and jobs

By choosing an organised activity, you make a responsible choice as a guest. You contribute directly to the local economy and ensure sustainable jobs throughout the year. This is a win-win situation where you get an authentic experience while helping to secure income for the locals.

4. You are safe with local knowledge

Safety is always a priority, and local guides know exactly what it takes to keep you safe. They know the best routes, are well acquainted with weather conditions and mountain hazards, have experience driving on Northern Norwegian roads, and are excellent at spotting the Northern Lights. You can relax and enjoy the tour, knowing you are in good hands. Additionally, the guides help you avoid private areas, respecting the local community.

5. You can enjoy the experience and let others handle the practicalities

With a local guide, you can sit back and enjoy the experience. No worries about where to go, how to get there, or what to do. The guides take care of all the practicalities, so you can spend your time on what truly matters – soaking up the magical moments and creating memories for a lifetime.
