My friend and I went on the midnight sun kayaking tour last week and it was an incredible way to experience the midnight sun. We had a wonderful trip and cannot recommend this tour and operator enough!

I had to cancel my dog sledging due to covid-19. I cancelled outside of the 7 day policy so was egiable for a 100% refund, however since the cancellation they have ignore all communication and currently owe me £300. I'm having to raise a section 75nwith my bank to try get the money back.

Wow ! What a great experience ! One day dogsledding with Active Tromso was really the top of our one week holiday in Tromso. Great human team (thanks Tore, Kristin and Martin) and great dog team (don't remember the name of our 5 great dogs). All was perfect, what an amazing day ! It was one of my dream, it is now top of my list of dreams came true. Thank you all ! The ride was awesome, the moment shared listening to Martin and Kristin, drinking a warm coffee with biscuits after taking care of the dogs was amazing too.

We booked this night dog sledding tour spontanously by sending an Email over the homepage and asking for a tour the next day (missed our original tour with another company). Sandra immediatly answered and as the day tours were fully booked we (me and 2 children, 7 and 16 years) decided the night tour. We were only a very small group of 5 people, guided by Tore the owner. So my nephew had his own sledge, my daughter and I shared one and there was a couple sharing one. It was a fantastic experience, despite or maybe due the to fact I was falling off the sledge twice ;-) I would absolutely recommend the night tour, as it was an even more special, "wild" experience! My daughter and nephew also enjoyed it very much; the dogs were friendly and really wanted to run. You could feel their unhappiness when stopping on the way and the power they have when pulling the sledge. It was really amazing driving the sledge on your own for 2 hours, also as we didn't have to stop too often (only 4 sledges) and would highly recommend it. You need some basic fitness I would say, as you really need to control the sledge with the break, hold your balance etc. but I was absolutely able to do it... Afterwards some hot tea, biscuits and very interestic information about the 92 dogs living there from Birte. If you think about Active Tromso or the other local dog sledding company, I would hightly recommend Active Tromso - you will get more for your money and most likely the adventure you are really looking for!

What an experience. We were met by the owner Tore and taken to the dogs. Boy were they friendly! Raring to go for a drive all excited as we prepared for the ride. The drive was fun with us experiencing all the options from falling off the sled, toppling sidewise into the snow, driver falling off and the passenger having to throw out the emergency stop contraption! There was also a time when both of us were off the sled and had to chase the sled! Very much recommended experience but not so much fun for those who are not totally fit - the dogs do turn around and look at you if you don’t get off and help with the climbs and difficult parts! Truly enjoyed! Thanks Tore!
