Northern Lights Chase including Possible Bonfire Experience from Tromso
"We pick you up in Tromsø and take you by bus on a chase for the magical Northern lights. With good local knowledge we will find the best area for the lights and good scenery for your pictures. To find a clear sky we will drive where we have to even to inner Troms if needed. During the evening your guide will tell you interesting information about the Northern lights both the science and the folklore. We will also show you how to adjust your camera settings for pictures of the northern lights and we will take pictures of you with the lights for you to take home to show your family and friends. (Available for download in original size from our Flickr account). We may also visit our lavvu (our modern Sami shelter) and sit around the nice warm b and roast marshmallows (If we are within reasonable driving distance from our base camp). Occasionally the chance of a clear sky is low and in that case we will advise you before the excursion to reschedule for the following day. If we are fully booked the following day you will have your money refunded instead."""

5-Hour Guided Snowshoe Hill Hike on the Whale Island in Tromso
"The activity starts at 10am when the shy daylight breaks through the polar night darkness.Tromsø Outdoor guide is waiting for you in front of the Radisson Blu Hotel in the city center. After brief introduction we begin with ca. 45-50 minutes drive to the destination. U depending on who you go with you may be lucky to be able to communicate also in German Swedish Polish or Spanish. The adventure starts with a short introduction on how to use snowshoes so everybody has time to get familiar with the equipment. We stay in one group all the time during the trip and hike to one of the summits surrounded by great views over majestic mountains and fiords – so long as the weather allows us to see them. < photos and to chat about our region and Arctic environment. One break is longer

On arrival listen to a brief introduction strap on your supplied snowshoes and follow your guide at a steady pace. Relish the sensation of walking easily over the snow with your snowshoes. During the one and a half hour walk you crunch over sparkling flat terrain and gentle hills and pad through crisp snow that surrounds the tranquil spruce and birch forests. There are several stops planned along the way to admire the scenery and take photos. Hot blackcurrant drink and lefse — sweet Norwegian cake are served on route. < return to central Tromsø to finish your tour roam around the city or rest before your you head out again to watch the Auroras."""
