Activity description

Book your snowmobile excursion and venture far into the Norwegian wilderness of Tromsø, riding along the breathtaking snowy landscapes with your own snowmobile. No previous experience needed! 

Experience the thrill of driving a snowmobile, feel the cold crisp Arctic air and marvel at the pristine, snowy wilderness of Northern Norway and Tromsø! You will ride along the captivating snow-covered mountains, astonishing landscapes and scenic valleys. Ready to get a taste of the local culture and learn how to drive the scooter of the North? 

Your adventure begins with a pick-up from the city center in Tromsø where you will meet your guides and hop on a scenic 90-minute bus ride towards the wilderness center in Camp Tamok. Once you've reached the camp, you will be provided with warm winter clothing (thermal suit, boots, mittens, balaclava and helmet) and follow a thorough safety instruction and a practical demonstration of driving the snowmobiles. Then, it is time to follow your guide and head out in the wild!

You will drive in pairs with one driver and one passenger per snowmobile and have plenty of opportunities to switch places during the adventure between the snow-covered mountains up to a pristine frozen lake. Prepare to ride along the snowy terrains, taking in the cold crisp Arctic air while feeling the thrill of riding the snowmobile! 

After the trip, your guide will lead the way to a traditional reindeer herder's tent where you will enjoy a delicious Norwegian stew or soup by the campfire, complemented with bread, tea, and water. Savor the flavors and cherish the moments with your loved ones, while learning about the Nordic culture and the life in the Arctic.

Once you've warmed up, it is time to board the bus, and return back to Tromsø with some lifelong memories of this unique excursion. Unleash your inner adventurer and book your snowmobile excursion in Tromsø for a day-long immersion in the Nordic wilderness!

Beaucoup apprécié Le temps de pause en tente sami , le feu, le poêle pour réchauffer le pain et la soupe au renne.

The activity was perfect! We were mesmerised by the views and the freedom to ride the snowmobiles. The hosts were amazingly friendly and so much fun!

  • 3.5 / 5

Assez cher mais bonne oragnisation

  • 5 / 5

Scenic 90 minute coach to the camp, where you’re able to pet the huskies and then you are paired up on a snowmobile and taken a reasonable length into the snowy mountains and share the driving duties 50/50. Amazing views whilst driving or sitting as passenger and tasty reindeer or veggie soup served afterwards.

J'ai adoré cette activité ! Les différents guides sont accueillants, sympathiques. Ils crées la cohésion de groupe pour profiter pleinement.

  • 5 / 5

Me parece una actividad súper divertida. Lo hicimos de noche y creo que de día ganaría puntos para disfrutar del paisaje, pero de noche le da un plus de adrenalina

  • 5 / 5

Une belle balade dans la neige, l’activité est très sympa et permet de découvrir les paysages. Les explications sont claires, nous étions un petit groupe de 10 personnes.

Superbe activité très bien géré Nous avons eu le temps de pleinement profiter

  • 4.3 / 5

The activity was brilliant, extremely well tutored, and a great experience! The instructor was very good and very safe. I personally thought that the trip was a bit short, but it was -27 degrees and perhaps it was not a day for lengthy distances!! Nice traditional Norwegian lamb stew after the trip also.

Bien, mais s'agissant de la deuxième expérience en motoneige, j'aurais aimé une sortie plus longue, et surtout deux groupes (expérimentés et non expérimentés) de plus il neigeait et une partie du parcours n'a pas été faite

  • 4.3 / 5

L'activité fait un peu usine. Nous sommes partis à plusieurs cars avec des personnes qui faisaient des activités différentes. Pour la moto nous étions un groupe de 36 ! Et on attend que tout le monde soit revenu des toilettes pour commencer à s'habiller dans une salle trop petite.. La balade de fait à petite allure et permet de bien profiter des paysages magnifiques. Les motos et les combinaisons gants et bottes sont en bon état et efficaces. Trop de monde également dans le lavu pour le repas avec des accompagnateurs si avaient du mal à servir. Le ragot et le jus servi étaient délicieux

Un moment unique avec des paysages à couper le souffle. Une équipe chaleureuse, au top

  • 5 / 5

There wasn’t enough snow during the period we went so the drive was not very long but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • 5 / 5

Super fun way to see the northern Norwegian landscape. We didn't see Aurora Borealis, but the trip was so fun it didn't matter. Would definitely do it again!

  • 4.3 / 5

Parcours de 12km en motoneige qui passe très vite. Dommage que l’on doit faire pas mal de pause (du au soucis mécanique et aux autres participants). Nous avons quand même pu monter en haut d’un point de vue magnifique. Super expérience tout de même. Je recommande. Le repas est super bon et pris dans un lieu atypique.

  • 5 / 5

The suits provided are perfect for keeping you warm. Speed is required for a smooth ride so it was unfortunate we were behind someone going sooo slowly! It was an awful lot of fun, and the food provided at the end was very good. The only downside was the wait for the coach to get us there, which was about 15 minutes late.

Très sympa à faire dans la nuit...un peu de conduite libre aurait été sympa

Loved the activity!! We rode our sled and it was so much fun!

  • 5 / 5

Rigolo mais pas fun. L’activité est une activité de groupe donc vitesse maximum 15-20km/h. Pour plus de sensations et de plaisir je conseille les chiens de traîneaux qui iront autant vite que la motoneige.

It was a fun activity, get to enjoy the scenery while driving/riding the snowmobile. The guide took to share some stories during the break and enjoy couple rounds of driving at faster speed before heading back. The fish soup is one of nicest food I had in Tromso.

  • 5 / 5

J'ai fait de la moto neige et du chien de traîneau de nuit c'est vraiment bien.

  • 5 / 5

Découverte de paysage norvégien en motoneige, le seul hic les bottes fournis laisse passer le froid et ça peu gâcher le plaisir.

  • 5 / 5

Les motoneige va vite, les paysages à couper le souffle. Bref une sensation très agréable

  • 3.8 / 5

Only able to drive 2/3 of distance promised due to snow in valley. Rather than having 2 extended stops, it would have been more enjoyable to do 2 short circuits so more time driving

Enjoyed the snowmobile experience as first timers.

A great way to experience real arctic weather using snowmobiles and commentary from the guides.

  • 5 / 5

Lovely experience with plenty of chances to swap drivers. It’s a gentle ride through the scenery, which is stunning, but you do also have a chance at the end to push the snowmobiles and go faster. We reached 80 km/h and did 2 or 3 loops!

  • 5 / 5

Really amazing experience! Great instructors, snowmobiling through a winter wonderland and then enjoying some reindeer stew to warm up when we got back. They even provided some gluten free bread for me!

Gained a lot of knowledge and experience going on a snowmobile for the first time

  • 5 / 5

I booked for my wife and I to ride on a snowmobile. The company gave us a call and email the day before to explain there had been some avalanches, this meant we wouldn’t be able to go at the time arranged. The company offered for us to pick another slot which we happily did. The trip was brilliant, the guide was a kind, funny, charismatic man from Iceland. He took us as far as was safe to do due to the avalanches, then took some photos with us. The food was tasty and we had a great night.

  • 5 / 5

On nous a demandé par mail quelques jours avant si nous maintenons l'activité car certain passage n'étaient pas accessible par manque de neige, que le parcourt serait modifié mais durée inchangée! Nous avons maintenues, Beaux paysages, machines puissante, sur minimum 2h voir 2h30 d'activité prévue, seulement 1h30 effectuée malgré les arrêts fréquents pour les aléas de chacun car justement beaucoup de poudreuse, ce qui admettons fait partie de l'avanture, mais pk écourter?!. Nous sommes un peu resté sur notre faim

  • 4.8 / 5

Snowmobiling was great fun at night. The whole experience was wonderful at Camp Tamok. Good value for money with the evening meal in the Sami tent too. Just wanted a little longer on the snowmobiles!

Snowmobile => Even though we could not get to the lake because of the weather, we were still able to enjoy and test our limit on a small ring they prepared as a replacement :)

Il avait beaucoup neigé nous n’avont pas pu faire le circuit habituelle , notre guide a dû improviser pour des questions de sécurité, nous avons tourné un peu rond. Malgré tout c’était sympa. Le repas traditionnel dans la laavu était vraiment bon et dépaysant.

Coole Sache, leider war es eine sehr langsame Truppe :-( Wenig Aktion! Müsste zwei Gruppen geben, für die Personen, die etwas schneller fahren möchten ist es ein wenig langweillig.

  • 4 / 5

Well organised, but with so many on one track all the time though it got very corregated.

  • 5 / 5

A brilliant activity. We were taught how to drive the snow mobiles and then taken into the mountains. The guides were great allowing time for lots of breaks (it is quite hard on the arms when you first start from holding on tightly) They even stopped so our children (and anybody else in the group) could try sledging.

  • 5 / 5

the snowmobile track was through different types of snowy terrain including woods and tundra with spectacular views of the mountains. We stopped on a frozen lake for a breather then had some free time to try out the bike by ourselves before heading back to camp for a hot meal.

  • 5 / 5

So much fun, breathtaking scenery, value for money.

  • 4.5 / 5

The tour was good, could have a little more freedom to those who want to go faster and the weather can be a bit bigger

  • 4.5 / 5

We went on the daytime snowmobiling excursion and it was really good fun, we went completely out into the middle of nowhere through the mountains. It was a shame we couldn’t make it to the top and we had to turn back due to time and also my partner would have liked to have a bit of time where he could really put the snow mobile to the test but unfortunately wasn’t able to. The meal was lovely after in a little tipi with a warm fire and warm tea.

Thiriling experience up in the mountains on a snowmobile in the dark Wow ! I would recommend to anyone but not for the faint hearted 🤪
