Fjords excursion by car


Discover scenic landscapes, impressive fjords and arctic wildlife. Join us on this day trip to discover Tromsø’s beautiful surroundings by car.


From lush green landscapes in summer, to colorful trees and sunsets in autumn, to snow capped mountains and frozen beaches in winter, Northern Norway’s nature offers stunning landscapes that will will leave you speechless.

After picking you up at our shop (Storgata 64), we leave Tromsø behind us and visit Kvaløya (“Whale Island”), where we visit some of the most beautiful landmarks that make Tromsø one of Norway’s most popular destinations.

We often see reindeer and elk crossing the road, sometimes we can spot sea eagles and seals hunting for fish. From mid October to late January whales visit Tromsø’s fjords to feed on herring. During that time there is a good chance we will spot humpback whales and orcas from the shore. We have a light lunch and hot drinks around a campfire. Throughout the trip we will take stunning photographs of the landscape and you that we will share with you after the trip.

We have warm clothing on board, in case you get cold, but please wear something wind and rain proof.

Important Things to Note

Frequently Asked Questions


  1. 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.

  2. We do go to Finland or Sweden if the conditions are better there. Within the Schengen area, it is not necessary to clear formalities when crossing borders as the Schengen agreement allows us to cross borders within Europe without a passport. However, we would still encourage bringing along your passports on the chases as the border control in Finland may on very rare occasions request to check our passports and it would be safer simply to bring it along.

  3. If you would like to purchase a SIM card with a data plan, you may visit the big shopping center Nerstranda in the city of Tromsø. There is a Netcom shop in there where you can buy a prepaid SIM card.

  4. It is not necessary to print anything for your trips with us. We have your details and have already passed them to our partners (for various day trips). Our partners and tour guides will have your details on their lists when picking you up, and all you need to do is check that your details are correct and you’re joining the correct company.
