We were travelling in a group tour and Viktor picked us up from our hotel. He made a grand entrance by wearing a 'bulls hat' and that really caught our attention from the start! While on the way to the camp, he gave a short introduction of Kirkenes, and that helped us to appreciate the place better. Upon arriving at... More

We were met at the Hurtigruten ship and brought out to their dígs. The provided coverall,gloves,a mask...gave ample instructions for us novice folks. Was 10 degrees below zero, but SO dry it was ok (heated handle bars!). Just wish we had more time to do more snowmobiling!! Went in the Sami tent for some talk & coffee. Would love to... More

Plus: .No fuss for equipment as everything needed for the safari is provided .Friendly n knowledgeable people running the show .Clear safety briefing before we set off on the snow mobiles .Unbeatable feeling when out...

The guide Ulf was a jolly chap. After a short drive to the venue and kitted up in warm coveralls and snow boots and mittens. We are given a short safety brief on how to operate the Skid doos. We were given ample encouragement to drive safe but have fun. This we did. To be fair the excursion, which was... More

This safari was definitely the highlight of our trip. We booked the King Crab / Snowmobile safari which is on 3 times a day. We decided to go for the evening one in the hope to see the Northern Lights. We were picked up by Hans from our hotel in a luxury minivan. Rather than just being the driver, he... More

Viktor collected us from our hotel and the fun started the moment we shook his hand. Great guide, full of facts and info about the local area. We booked the snow mobile tour which ended in a feast of king crab! They provided extra clothing (snow suits, mittens etc.) which was needed. Thanks for a great experience

When we met them at the harbour we understood straight away that the excursion would have been amazing. Two super fun guys came to pick us up at the harbour and as soon as we got at the camp we have also realised they were very experienced as well. I am very happy to have done this stunning experience in... More

Booked the snow mobile safari through Hurtigruten. The buses were there waiting for us when the ship docked, 17 of us in total doing the trip, too many for one mini bus so Hubby and I travelled in a bus on our own - felt like a private transfer. Viktor, who drove us, was a pleasure to chat with on... More
