Your tour begins with a pickup from central Tromsø. Meet your guide, settle into the vehicle and head west of the city and into the Arctic wilderness.

On the way to Kvaløya (or, "Whale Island"), one of Norway's most beautiful 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 Tromsø. Along the way, stop for a snack and warming cup of hot chocolate as you take in the views and look out 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 Tromsø, your guide emails souvenir photos so you can remember a great day in the wild Arctic.
