nl-signature

This tour will give you an insight into the life of a Norwegian family that has been in the farming business for generations.

The farm itself, however, is a state-of-the-art construction built in 2015, with the goal of maximizing animal well-being and minimizing the impact on nature, by reducing waste and energy usage. The unique building with its round shape gives the farmers the possibility for close up interactions with the animals, like petting, feeding and health checks.

You will learn about the life of the bulls, what it takes to keep them happy and healthy, and even how they automatically send information about their unborn calves to the farmer’s phones using SMS. You’ll be surprised how modern farming can be!

After visiting the farm area you will be greeted in the family’s house for a light lunch, including a selection of Black Angus meat, mashed potatoes and vegetables. You will be served homemade bread, local beer or wine, coffee or tea and ice cream dessert, while overlooking a nearby fjord through the panoramic window in the farmer’s living room.

    You can also take the airport bus, Flybussen to the city. The bus cost 90 NOK per adult and stops at 4 stops in the city: Scandic Ishavshotel, Tromsø Prostneset, Scandic Grand hotel and Polaria.

  4. The city of Tromsø lies around 69° northern latitude and therefore in the middle of the Aurora belt, which maximizes your chances of seeing the Northern Lights. If the sky is clear, the Aurora can be seen almost every night between September and early April. On our Northern Lights chases we have the possibility to cross into different nearby climate zones. This often gives us good chances to find clear sky, even if the sky above Tromsø is cloudy. Tromsø also offers an international airport, a variety of hotels, museums, restaurants and is surrounded by amazing nature. The gulf stream keeps the city fairly warm throughout the Norwegian winter.
