Arctic Wilderness Husky and Snowmobile Adventure

Explore the Arctic Wilderness Husky and Snowmobile Adventure

Explore the Arctic wilderness and get to know Tromsø, the bustling heart of Arctic Norway, on this 5-days adventure. Admire the Northern Lights and experience the unspoiled arctic nature and wildlife from a snowmobile, RIB (rigid inflatable boat) and a dogsled.

At a latitude of 70 degrees north, Tromsø is often referred to as the capital of the Arctic, being the largest city above the Arctic Circle. The city enjoys a scenic location surrounded by majestic mountains, fjords and a stunning archipelago. Combining the comfort of a lively, charming and cultural city with this natural setting, Tromsø makes for a great base for any winter or summer adventure. Arctic Wilderness Husky and Snowmobile Adventure

Tromsø is renowned for being one of the best places on the planet from where to observe the amazing phenomenon that is the Aurora Borealis, as it is situated right in the center of the Northern Lights zone. Most of the Northern Lights outbursts visible from Tromsø are green, but larger outbursts can also include other colors.

In order to see the Northern Lights, it must be dark and clear – the reason that we never see the Northern Lights between May and August. The greatest frequency is between 6pm and 2am. Some visitors prefer to see the performance from a mountaintop shielded from the city’s lights, while others are just as impressed right in the city center.

Winter in Tromsø is also not especially cold. The lowest temperature recorded in Tromsø is minus 18 degrees Celsius, but the average temperature in January is -4. However, do expect a lot of snow!

Between November 21 and January 21, the sun disappears under the horizon and we experience what is known as “the Polar Night”. Despite the absence of sunlight, it is not completely dark during the day, however, and the light and color in the sky can be truly amazing when the weather is favorable.
