A lovely and highly recommended experience. Our guide, Karolis,took us to different spots, which allowed us to see the magic and quietness of the place. Interesting information about nature, Tromsø and Norway, a delicious homemade lunch and good organization further improved the experience. In less than 24 we received the photos of the trip, which are of professional quality and a token gift of our stay in Tromsø.

Fantastic Experience
Jul 2019 • Friends
We went on the Arctic Landscapes tour on July 25th with Tommy as our guide and had a wonderful day. We saw beautiful scenery, learned a lot about Tromsø and the surrounding area and one highlight was seeing the wild reindeer trotting down the road!

Tommy made some extra stops due to the weather being lovely on the day of our tour, and after confirming nobody needed to be anywhere later on he extended the tour duration slightly to allow us to see the most we could.

The vehicle was comfortable with temperature controls, and there was a public toilet at the picnic stop that was clean and well stocked. Lunch was provided and vegan and vegetarian diets of those on the tour were well catered for.

Tommy was a brilliant guide, very friendly and knowledgeable. One of the visitors on our tour had their birthday that day so the company had arranged a little celebration with a cake which was lovely.

I can’t recommend this tour highly enough, if you are visiting Tromsø definitely do it!

It was indeed a special tour with the birthday celebration at the picnic spot which created a brilliant atmosphere at the beach. It was such a nice time with you and the other lovely guests, interesting talks in combination with Tromsø`s magical landscape. Wandering Owl will keep up to deliver the best service possible for all guests. Enjoy life! Your guide Tommy and the Wandering Owl team

Breathtaking and relaxing tour
Jul 2019 • Family
We couldn’t have asked for a better tour and guide for this amazing landscape tour. Our guide knew exactly where to stop, took excellent pictures, we had an amazing picnic lunch on a beach. Our tour guide was relaxing, personable, knowledgeable about the diverse culture in the area, and super easy going. We brought our 2 year old on the tour, (thankfully he was great today) but it was never an issue. The guide was great about it. This really is a great tour for all ages. We can’t say thank you enough. This tour and company is everything you’d want in a tour.

Best Use of our Time in Tromso!
Jun 2019 • Friends
We knew we were landing in Tromso on a Sunday when most businesses are closed so decided to get out and explore the Arctic Landscape on a small group tour and chose Wandering Owl due to their small group sizes and photography 'focus'.

From my first email to booking, they were responsive and answered any questions. I was assured we would be met at the port - which we were - by Tommy - our guide and driver. There were 7 of us on the tour.

Tommy gave us real insight to what it was like to live in Norway and the Arctic. He shared with us interesting facts about the use of tunnels, the economy etc. He also drove us to amazingly beautiful places. We always had time to wander and explore in each of the areas.

Our tour included a very good lunch which we enjoyed at a local beach. Tommy made sure we packed as much in as possible keeping in mind to get us back to our ship in time for departure. What I appreciated was the fact that he skipped the typical touristy shops (no glass shops) and always asked the group what our preferences were.

After hearing some of the experiences of fellow passengers onboard who ended up on large buses herded through glass factories etc. - I knew we had chosen well with Wandering Owl.

Our guide had a true love of nature and was excited to share it with all of us on the tour.

The tour was well run with comfortable transport. It was just the two of us on our tour which meant we have a really personalised experience. Our guide Alex was very knowledgeable and made sure we saw all the best places. Photography and lunch is included which is a nice touch. I would definitely recommend this tour, especially if you do not have a car.

Great Arctic Landscapes
Jun 2019 • Couples
We had a great experience viewing arctic landscapes in a small group together with Wendy and Bill guided by Tommy. Tommy was really informative and well prepared for all our questions about the surroundings. We made stops at different picturesque locations and had a tasty sandwich with a hot chocolate for lunch. We really liked it and reccomend this tour to everyone visiting Tromso.

Hallo Evgenii, thank you for your super positive feedback on our tour. It makes me happy to read that you liked our trip. The tour to Sommerarøy is the best around Tromsø, even if the weather is changeable. And pure nature is a highlight in itself, combined with homemade chocolate and sandwiches, and a harmonic tour group like that day makes the day. All the best, Tommy and the Wandering Owl team
