We had booked the Ice Fishing day with Karin but unfortunately on the day, we were advised that the conditions on the ice were not safe enough due to the weather that week causing the ice to crack. Karin offered to take us to meet a reindeer Sami and feed the reindeer, which was a more expensive experience but she offered to take us for no additional cost in place of our cancelled booking. Although initially disappointed (but no fault of Karin’s obviously!), we agreed to the reindeer feeding. We are so glad we did. It was a very intimate experience with only two other (lovely!) travellers joining - so much better than sharing the experience with a huge bus load of tourists. We had the entire area to ourselves- a gorgeous backdrop of the sun just beneath the horizon behind the mountains and a huge snowy plain of reindeer. After a good amount of time around the reindeer, we sat around a fire among the reindeer and chatted with the reindeer Sami with a tea or coffee - he was clearly so passionate about his reindeer and this made him so interesting to listen to. We then headed to Karin’s home where we were treated to reindeer burgers and hot drinks around the fire in her BBQ hut. It was such a lovely relaxed day and I would highly recommend any tour with Karin if you enjoy sightseeing with smaller groups. We wish we had come across Karin earlier so we could have booked other days with her!! Thanks Karin for a great day.

We did a Fjord trip with Karin and it was even a better experience than watching the Northern Lights, not because Fjords are visually more spectacular but because Karin is the best host/ guide out there. If you are a planning a trip to Tromsø, please give her a shout and your experience would be worthwhile. Highly recommended!

We feel very lucky to have joined this tour around Tromso today. Thank you Karin for showing us your beautiful country. Your family’s cabin in the countryside was so cosy and inviting, we felt properly welcome. We would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to see the real Norway guided by a true local.

Karin is an amazing host and guide. She went out of her way driving 100s of kilometres to help us see the northern lights during a notoriously cloudy night. With Karin, what we get is a personalised experience. When we were in waiting for the northern lights, we warmed up in Karin’s cozy cabin in the forest that had fire and hot drinks and some snacks. I highly recommend Skadi Adventures!

By far (very far) the BEST tour we have ever had during our travels. ❤️ We did the snowshoeing tour and had amazing views along the way. All the stops we’ve made were incredible and the meal so tasteful. 😋 Karine is an amazing person, very nice and kind. It feels like you are with your family! I highly recommend taking the tours with her (she is proposing a lot of options)! Thank you so much for everything and see you very soon I hope!

So, we chose this ice fishing activity because my 17 year daughter really wanted to. My family likes to recreationally fish (we go camping a lot) but I’m not really into fishing.

Despite that, this was one of our best tours. Karin is a wonderful guide and a local Norwegian and we had a lovely time. Just being in the middle of the Fjord was enough for me. I enjoyed making the ice hole, etc. and even caught a fish (too small to eat- threw him back) but the rest of my family all caught fish to eat.

It’s about a half-hour drive to the Fjord, then 2 hours on the Fjord to fish. Afterwards, we go to her house and have hot drink and treats while she and her husband prepare the fish. Then we go to her Grillhute (like a sauna with a big fire for cooking in the middle). This was so fun!!!

See the pictures. I just think the pictures tell the story better.

We had a great time in a group of 6, thanks to Karin. On the last evening of our holiday we could see some lights dancing despite the previous snowstorm and low KP-Index. Karin knows her way around and tries to make everything possible to capture this wonderful natural spectacle. A delicious barbecue in the local lavuu rounded it off perfectly. Thanks for the great trip.

We recently went on Skadi Adventures Northern Lights tour. It was fantastic from start to finish. Karin the tour coordinator was just brilliant. We travelled to her base camp just over an hour outside Tromsø. Enroute, the lights started to become visible and Karin had a place to pull in within minutes. When we arrived at her base camp, there was a fire lighting in a traditional Norwegian cabin. There was different foods to cook over the grill and lots of hot drinks. The cabin was an amazing spot to wait for the lights as it was warm and we could eat and drink. We saw other bus tours enrout and all the people were standing shivering on the side of the road while they waited on the lights. Karin took amazing photos for us and shared them that night. We were lucky the night we travelled as the lights were very strong. She even dropped us back to our accommodation in Tromsø. A definite must do on your visit to Tromsø.

My daughter, son-in-law, and I signed up for the ice fishing but the weather did not cooperate during the biggest storm in 30 decades in the area. So, we decided to do the country sightseeing tour with Skadi.

We were WOWED! Karin, a local from this area was perfect as a country guide. She led us to a Norwegian hygge and we cozied up around a fire while she cook us the freshest of haddock caught days before, homemade salad. She even topped off the day with s'mores. Along the way, we stopped to gaze and experience the snow mountains and fjords and took a few pictures, of course

She even connected us with another local leader and she facilitated an improntu visited to that place of our particular interest.

If there were more than 5 stars, Skadi deserves them. Karin is dedicated to giving visitors an authentic experience no matter her offerings.
