Testemonials from our guests


Eco lighthouse

Nature, the environment, and safety have always been our top priorities on our tours, something we take very seriously. Every aspect of the trip is carefully planned to avoid leaving a footprint in nature. We simply work as sustainably as we can, and collaborating with other businesses is part of that direction. In this way, we save the environment from unnecessary pollution. We clean up after ourselves and others when we're out and about.

We strongly believe that we shouldn't leave any traces for the future, and our motto is "Sustainable thinking for a sustainable future."


VARDE is the official quality system for Norwegian tourism. The company is assessed by experts and provided with feedback on both general and specific quality criteria.

Companies that maintain high standards in all aspects of their business practices and meet VARDE Experience Quality's comprehensive assessment criteria are entitled to display the VARDE certification.

Aurora cam

We collaborate with the well-known weatherman Christoph Siegrist from Switzerland who has installed an auroa web cam at our basecamp. It is one of five such cams in Norway and part of a network of aurora cameras in Scandinavia with a total of 16 cameras.

This gives us a compeetitve advantage in that it gives us an aurora alert on our phone when the lights are visible above our basecamp, even through clouds! Take a look at a selection of the latest and greatest images that is taken with the camera.
