Definitely one of the highlights of my stay in Tromso. Something magical walking under the stars, in knee high snow with beautiful scenery. Karolis was an entertaining and informative guide and nothing was too much trouble. We were lucky enough to see the Northern lights and have some awesome pictures of the evening. Definitely recommend.

The most magical night walk with our lovely guide Delphin; snowshoeing up our very own mountain under the starry sky, full moon and northern lights. Watching the inky fjords from the peak, under the shooting stars with our yummy picnic and bonfire, then walking past a herd of reindeer on the way down, could not have been any more special, thank you!

Thank you for joining !! Hiking at night in those conditions is such a great experience, and I am glad our small party was up for it. After all it's what owls do, they wander under the moon and the stars ;) Thanks for the great company!

Max was a great guide, really cheery, knowledgeable and patient. We were in a small group, a couple of us found it very hard work; I've never done any snowshoeing before and am not a very sporty person, but Max was very encouraging and was able to adjust the tour to suit everyone, We were so lucky, the snow flurries cleared away and we walked over untouched snow, with a fantastic view over the mountains and fjords and ate our delicious soup under the northern lights! I am so glad I did this, I found it challenging, but a fantastic experience.

Our guide Karolis was perfect for the snowshoeing experience; he was funny, entertaining and full of knowledge and stories. We had a fabulous night with clear skies, plenty of stars, the northern lights, fantastic soup, great company, awesome warm thermal suits, and comfortable snowshoes..the list could go on. I believe were superbly lucky yesterday. We climbed about 400m and got quite hot (frankly I never believed I could be sweating) with a workout and saw the spectacular fjords even.
Unbelievable! I would 100% recommend.

We went with Delphin from Wandering Owls for the star walk, a nightly snowshoe-hike up a hill - and it really was the highlight of our holiday! We were a small group with similar fitness and attitude, starting the trip good tempered in heavy snow-fall. Very soon the snowfall stopped, the clouds opened, and the full moon lit the glittering powdersnow. Incredible views to the fjords and the snowy mountainpeaks around - wow! It was kind of magical! Even the snowfall that came up again when we sat on the mountain around the fire and had soup, couldn't spoil our spirit, it just was another fascinating part of a fantastic night out. Highly recommended for all who like being out there and don't mind the elements.

Hey Barbara, thanks for sharing your experience of our STAR WALK. It was quite a snow storm indeed! But the weather changes so fast around here, and nature granted us with eye-blowing clear skies to create a mysterious atmosphere, the photos are fantastic! Nothing could have spoiled our mood that night: too much beauty for that! ;) The Owls wish you two the best, and maybe see you again for a survival trip!

The highlights of our trip to Norway !
My expectations were set high, already (considering the ranking online).
It exceeds my expectations !

Already the beginning was an experience on itself. It felt like you have the best guides ! The guides that take you on a trip, are all enthusiasts, different personality, but all looks passionate !

Delphin (our guide), takes you on a journey, already before you are outdoor, he has this ability to share his happiness, excitement of how beautiful is going to be what you will see.

We got lucky, because after the snowstorm in previous days, the sky was less cloudy, and enables us to walk through the croissant moon light, under a sky full of stars.

Going up, it became ever better, a green aurora shape built in the sky, and circle us !
It only motivates us to climb faster, harder, and get closer and closer to it, like a magnet ! Plenty of flying stars went through as soon as we took a break to contemplate it. There is no rush at any moment. We even took a moment to listen to the silence. Impressive !

We reach the top, where Delphin sets up a fire, and we enjoy an amazing soup and home-made cookies ! No regret of choosing vegetarian (even so I am not vegetarian). So tasty !

Finally, Delphin tooks pictures, with the proper quality and set up, so even so our camera could not capture the beauty of the night, we've got our souvenirs ! (not only print in our memory). In addition, you could become the next instagram influencer ^^by modelling there.

There is nothing negative to tell how this activity, and company, they deserve there 5 stars ranking ! People, Activity itself, Organization and book, Food are all close to perfection if not perfection !

If you still hesitate to go there, or book with the wandering owl ! Stop thinking, just go, just book ! It is fantastic ! I actually want to go again !!!

Dear Sarah and Dennis your review is a shoot of positive energy for us Owls! Thank you! Every body works so hard in our office (and in our kitchen) and out there under the sky. This being said, our STAR WALK trip was fabulous, and I have to add that sharing such an experience with friendly and enthusiastic people makes it even more fabulous. All senses open and soaking the beauty of nature. Yes, come back anytime!

Had one of the best night experience in Tromso with Adrian! He was so considerate and ensure everyone was well-taken care of, and also gave us enough time to admire the northern light! The path he chosen was also just right for us, not too easy nor difficult that gave us the perfect experience of shoewalking under the stars, thank you!

What a way to be a part of the true nature around Tromsø! The Star Walk really was an amazing experience - we had incredible views on the walk up to the view point and then came back down the mountain in the snow! We felt completely safe in the hands of our guide Virgil, who was super friendly and very experienced - thank you Virgil for making our trip so special!

Fantastic snowshoeing experience under the Northern Lights! Our lovely guide - Pol - made sure that everybody quickly felt at ease and had a nice time during our drive to the destination. Even though it was a windy evening, Pol knew which spot to pick, so that we were sheltered and could enjoy both the activity and the stops for photos and snacks. I felt really spoilt with the delicious soup, hot chocolate and home-made cookies! It was a fabulous experience - I highly recommend it whether you are a snowshoeing pro or a total rookie - you will be well taken care of and will spend great moments exploring the Norwegian night landscape.
A big THANK YOU to Pol and to Wandering Owl!

Hello Anka_S_80, What a lovely feedback! Thank you! We just love to "spoil" our guests with our signature homemade biscuits and hot chocolate :) and we are really happy that you loved it. Pol has extensive knowledge about the area that allows him to choose good hiking spot even in challenging conditions. Great to hear that you had not only enjoyable hike but also got a bonus of northern lights. Wow! We are hoping to welcome you in Norway again!

Our group of 8, had an arctic and enjoyable evening with Carolis as our guide. He identified an excellent route to help us enjoy the expedition even in the conditions of considerable deep layer of fresh snow. We snowshoed for about 80 mins before breaking to take some photos and indulge in dinner round the campfire. Wandering Owl has a very sustainable approach which I favour, and tries not to adversely impact the environment. I liked the flexibility, values and sense of caring that a small company does bring. Would definitely use them again if we were staying longer. Thank you Carolis!

Hello Julia W, We have loved hearing feedback about how your experience with us was. We understand the frustration when mother nature has other plans in mind. The Star Walk is a night time snowshoeing hike, we are unable to control the clouds (unfortunately!) so we understand the disappointment you felt when there weren't stars, however sounds like you had extra fluffy snow, which would have made the snowshoeing much more enjoyable. Happy to hear that you enjoyed the factors that we can control, such as the service, our home-made food and your booking experience and we are happy to hear you had a positive experience with these points. These are all aspects that we can control and can improve on, feedback is so valuable to us. We hope to see you again in Tromso! Good luck with your future travels and adventures.
