What to expect

On the way to Kvaloya (or "Whale Island"), one of Norway's most stunning islands, there are plenty of opportunities to admire and take pictures of the fjords, mountains, beaches, lakes, forests, and small villages in the countryside outside of Tromso. Along the way, stop for a snack and a cup of hot chocolate as you take in the views and look for such wildlife as reindeer, seals, and eagles. With luck, you'll even see some of the humpbacks and orcas that give Whale Island its name. After you are dropped off back in central Tromso, your guide emails souvenir photos so you can remember a great day in the wild Arctic.

We spent 4+ hours driving through incredible countryside about an hour from Tromso. Our guide Karols handled the narrow icy roads expertly, all while telling us about the animals and landscape. We stopped often to photograph the amazing views. The guide took photos of all of us, and sent out an album to us that night. It was bitter cold, but we could always duck back into the van for warmth.
Wandering Owl kept in touch with us both before and after our tour, they were very willing to customize things for us. I would absolutely use them again, this was a great experience. Don’t miss the chance to do this tour.

Peter was a kind guide who took us in a small van on this snowy day tour into the fjords to the west of Tromso. He was attentive, interested, showed us the nicest spots for photoshoots and explained the arctic life. While there were other groups on the road, he managed to take us to locations where we had nature to ourselves. Because of the slippery roads, he gave us crampons that were really helpful to keep our balance when leaving the car for sightseeing. We spotted reindeer, had a glimpse of sun over the mountains and enjoyed a good homemade sandwich and cookies for lunch. The final spot was beautiful on a sandy beach with great views to the sea and into the fjord. He took us home safely and right on time to catch our flight home. Simply a good trip! The photographs he took were all super. Only remark is the high price for the high resolution downloads (the low res ones are free) - so be aware and make sure you also take your own camera!

What a magical way to spend New Year’s Eve! Our guide, Tommy, and driver, Vitek, were funny, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We headed to Finland to find the stars and weren’t disappointed. Whilst the stars were difficult to see without a camera, Tommy helped me get the right settings to capture the magic. The group was small and we managed to find a spot without any other tours, which was even better. We would highly recommend the tour. Thank you Tommy and Vitek and Wandering Owl.
Only warning- as Tommy explained, don’t go expecting to see the Northern Stars you see in pictures, we could only see them using a proper camera so I would recommend taking a proper camera if you want to capture some evidence.

However, Tommy and all our experienced guides are very committed to find clear skies and provide excellent experience to our guests regardless the weather. We are very proud of our professional team :) Thank you again!

Tromsø, Norway has breathtaking scenery. Wandering Owl (great name for a company, right?) sent us out with Karols, an incredible guide. We spent the whole day, because day lasted from 10 am til 2pm, plus an additional golden hour traipsing around the islands and mountIns near Tromsø. The tour was fantastic! So many beautiful stops. Karols’s knowledge of the area is impressive, as is his driving ability on the icy roads. Visit Tromsø, see the lights, but also see the sights. Norway is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and in winter ... cold, but WOW! Lunch was provided -homemade sandwiches, home-baked cookies, tea, hot chocolate. I’m gluten free, and they made me both a sandwich and cookies. I highly recommend Wandering Owl.

Hello LauraJMar, Thank you for taking time to write this excellent feedback to us! We owls are proud of our name, nice to hear you liked it too :) We agree, Karolis is incredible, we value his knowledge and professionalism. He knows a lot of locations around Tromsø to show and explore together with guests. We also could not agree with you more - beautiful landscapes and breathtaking views in Norway are totally worth seeing. So happy you enjoyed the sightseeing tour and included lunch with warm drinks. Thank you for recommending us.

This was our second trip with Wandering Owl (the organiser company) and again, they lived up to all expectations. A great, cozy and almost “familial” trip out in the Norwegian landscapes. Our guide (and therefore, driver) Peter took really good care of us. He was attentive, funny and interactive at all times. He took his time with taking our pictures and with making sure we spent enough time at every stop to take in the views while ensuring we wouldn’t be left in the cold for too long either :).

Totally recommending this trip or any other trip with this company. Thank you wonderful people!

Oh and also, the best biscuits and tea ever!

This is a great trip if you want to get out of Tromsø and see the local scenery. Our guide Tommy was knowledgable, friendly chatty and a great guide. The photos they sent us after the trip were great too. There are many similar tours out of Tromsø but I highly recommend you go with this one, you won’t be disappointed.

We took 2 tours with Wandering Owl, the Arctic Landscapes and The Snow Shoe Hike. Both trips were brilliant, well organised, friendly knowledgeable and professional guides (Petr for Snow Shoeing and Ellie for Arctic Landscapes) who went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great time. A nice touch is the guides take photos that you can download and keep. We also liked that they are an ethical company who try to minimise their impact on the landscapes they operate in. We really enjoyed our tours and would highly recommend Wandering Owl.
