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.

Important Things to Note

Frequently Asked Questions

general

  1. Temperatures not only depend on the time you visit but often even more on the area we go to. The temperatures in and around Tromsø can sometimes be 30˚C warmer than the temperatures in Finland or Sweden, countries we regularly visit on our chase for clear sky. Therefore it’s impossible to say in advance what the temperatures are going to be like. September and October are by far the warmest months of the Aurora season. Preparing for the extreme is not necessary and the temperatures are usually between 0-10˚C (32-50˚F). Especially September can be a pleasant month for outdoor activities, during the day it can sometimes be as warm as 20˚C (68˚F). Wind and rain, however, should always be taken into consideration. In late October we expect the first light snow. November and December are the first winter months and now the temperatures start to drop. Especially when leaving Tromsø and the coast behind the temperatures can go below freezing. Once the temperatures are below 0˚C every precipitation turns into snow. Since it then sometimes gets warmer again, there may also be rain, mud and ice. In December we have to be prepared for temperatures similar to the ones in January and February. January and February are usually the coldest months of the season. While Tromsø rarely gets colder than -15˚C (5˚F), places in nearby Finland and Sweden can easily get down to -30˚C (-22˚F) or colder. While you should make some preparations yourself we provide most of the gear to keep you warm. This is the time to mention that we have not yet lost anyone on our chases! March and April are still winter months. The snow stays and the temperatures can be below or above freezing and we therefore have to be prepared for both rain and snow. Even though the Aurora season is coming to an end by April, Tromsø can be cold and chilly until June.

  2. In the city, there are several museums, art galleries, restaurants and cafes to check out. There's also the Arctic Cathedral which is a popular tourist attraction across the bridge. All museums except the Tromsø museum are within walking distance. The most popular museums are the Polaria and Polar Museum and they are both a short walk from the city center. The Tromsø Cable Car also offers a stunning bird’s eye view of Tromsø as you ride up the mountains!

  3. 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.

  4. We use Norwegian kroner (NOK) here. Most shops, restaurants and even taxis here take credit card, so if you bring a little less cash, it shouldn't be a problem too as long as you have a working credit card.
