Incredible beautiful landscape
Oct 2021 • Couples
We've been on an awesome trip into the Arctic Wilderness with our guide Virgil. It was an absolute amazing day. Virgil showed us beautiful hotspots and told us about life in the Arctic. He was very nice and friendly and an excellent driver. He also shared the proffessional pics he took with us. We've been a small group with 6ppl only. It was a great day!

Wonderful tour of Arctic Landscapes
Jan 2020
This tour we took 6 hours after doing the Northern Lights in Tromsø. My two adult children and I had a great time, and saw a lot of amazing landscapes. The guide was helpful, and also took pictures of us as a group and also sent us some pictures of the trip.

An Electrifying Tour
Feb 2020
This tour truly show us the arctic landscapes in Norway. Tommy, our driver cum guide is not only experience but is also very passionate about photography.
I personally love his own recipe of hot chocolate, hmmm, yummy. We saw couple of sea eagles and a group of reindeers too.
Anyone who loves photography, wild life, snow and cold weather are strongly recommended to join this trip to experience the cold, snowy arctic wilderness.
Thank you Tommy, for sharing with us the best photography spots and your warm hospitality.

Great informative spectacular trip along the fjords
Feb 2020 • Couples
This is a great trip if you want to get out of Tromsø and see the local scenery. Our guide Tommy was knowledgable, friendly chatty and a great guide. The photos they sent us after the trip were great too. There are many similar tours out of Tromsø but I highly recommend you go with this one, you won’t be disappointed.

Peter, wonderful biscuits and tea, even better landscapes!
This was our second trip with Wandering Owl (the organiser company) and again, they lived up to all expectations. A great, cozy and almost “familial” trip out in the Norwegian landscapes. Our guide (and therefore, driver) Peter took really good care of us. He was attentive, funny and interactive at all times. He took his time with taking our pictures and with making sure we spent enough time at every stop to take in the views while ensuring we wouldn’t be left in the cold for too long either :).

Totally recommending this trip or any other trip with this company. Thank you wonderful people!

Oh and also, the best biscuits and tea ever!

Wonderful experience

This Arctic Landscapes Tour was a wonderful tour, with outstanding landscapes. The guide Tommy took many pictures and taught us many things, notably about Tromso. Wandering Owl is a high quality company and friendly as well. They managed to make myself move to another day as I made a mistake in my booking. I highly recommend it.

A great tour in the arctic landscape
Jan 2020
We had a great day in the arctic landscape with our excellent guide Karolis. Apart from views over beautiful fjords, we enjoyed snowfall, a fishing otter and a lonely reindeer scraping for food under the snow. Thanks to Karolis experience and knowledge we did a change of the route so that we also got to see clear skies and a beautiful sunset.
