Tour description

This safari by minibus explores the coastal and island landscape west of Tromsø. As well as dramatic scenery, you will find traces of settlements going back thousands of years. Who were the people who lived here before us? Why did they come? How did they survive the harsh climate and cold winters? A dedicated and knowledgeable guide will answer these questions and many more in detail during the trip. 

The safari combines nature and culture, including sampling the local food, so you will get the best of both worlds. Salmon-, reindeer- of vegetarian wraps will be served at the beautiful island of Sommarøy and during the trip, there will be several stops along the way. In this way, you can touch, feel and take pleasure in the dramatic scenery, as well as filling up your camera memory card!

This is a tour for the entire family, and you will get the opportunity to ask questions, take pictures and stretch your legs in an amazing Arctic environment that can spellbind even the most seasoned of travelers. 

The tour is available throughout the winter season, except during the polar night season (15.11 - 19.01). If you want a coastal safari during this season, we recommend the Coastal Safari with Local Lunch.
