On this tour can you discover the wild, arctic wilderness and learn how to drive a snow mobile, walk with snowshoes and try out ice fishing. This tour is also perfect if you´re interested in good spots for nature photography.

The starting point for both tours is in Rotsund valley. Rotsund valley is very close to the Lyngenfjord and is a very narrow and beautiful valley surrounded by high majestic mountains. The tour starts from the end of the valley. From here we will drive up the mountain slopes with snow mobiles with special designed carriage filled with warm reindeer skins – everything to keep you warm and comfortable. The view from the carriage is amazing.

The snow mobile trip goes through the wood and up the slopes to the top of the Sikkajavrí mountain. Here we arrive at our wilderness camp. The wilderness camp has a small wood fired hut and we also set up a bonfire on the outside. From the camp it is a 360 degrees panorama view to the Lyngen Alps, Kåfjord Alps and high peaks in Skjervøy.

Here you will go on a walk with snowshoes. Snowshoes is designed for hiking in deep snow. And around Sikkajavrí there’s a big chance to see moose. Did you know the moose is called “The King of the Forest” in Norway?

After the hike with snowshoes, it’s time to learn how to drive a snow mobile. With your own guide you'll go on a snow mobile safari in the area to see more of the special mountain landscape.

Have you ever tried to catch your own fish in a frozen mountain lake? Nothing stops the Norwegians form fishing, not even the ice. Ice fishing is exiting and takes patience, but in Sikkajavrí its possible to catch both arctic char and mountain trout – if you´re lucky!

When it´s time for lunch, we will serve you our homemade and tasty salmon soup. Enjoy the soup around the fire, or inside our warm hut. Now it is time to relax and take in the view of both the arctic landscape and enjoy all the magical light that occurs in the polar night. It also plenty of time to take more photos.
