Welcome to Tromsø and The North of Norway

ArcticWild.no is a family run guide company. In the summer we run sea kayaking tours in the fjords and archipelagos around Tromsø and the island of Kvaløya. We also guide hiking tours up some of the more challenging peaks in the region.

When the midnight sun sets and the snow settles we run many of the same tours under the light of the aurora borealis, or the northern lights as many know them by.

We believe in personal and close to nature experiences, so we run a maksimum of 8 participants per tour. This gives us the flexibility to make sure our guides can provide you with a true arctic adventure.

On our tours we adjust to all skill levels, so if you have a request, just let us know.

If you are in Tromsø for the day, or seeking an overnight or multi day adventure, we will be happy to guide you.

Regards, ArcticWild.no

  •   I was looking for a kayaking adventure that went beyond the "beginner tour of the harbour" that I expected. ArcticWild seemed to fill that role, so I signed up for a Midnight Sun tour. On the day of the paddle, I got a text from...More

  •   Visited last year while at Sommerøya for a long weekend. Since we didn't have much time we opted for a 3-4 hour trip, and although both of us have paddled a little before we were very rusty and thus happy to find a great guide....More
