Tromsø Safari is the leading activity company in Tromsø and provides a wide range of fun and scenic day and evening activities throughout the year, embracing the natural beauty and culture of Tromsø and Northern Norway. We pride ourselves on offering our guests an easy way to explore our exciting part of the world, but at the same time maintaining and strengthening local pride and involvement.
Summer (June – August): North of the Arctic Circle, the sun never sets during the summer. This creates a summer day that lasts for weeks, giving us plenty of time for adventures to explore Tromsø – day and night. Come and take part in exciting activities such as Midnight Sun tours, RIB excursions and mountain hikes when the day never ends.
Spitsbergen /Svalbard: The archipelago Svalbard North is roughly midway between mainland Norway and the North Pole, where the Barents Sea meets the Arctic Ocean. Tromsø Safari, in cooperation with Arctic Explorer, offers boat trips on the catamaran Aurora Explorer in the Isfjorden area of Spitsbergen/Svalbard connecting Longyearbyen with the Russian settlement of Barentsburg and the ghost town Pyramiden.
Northern Lights (September – early April): The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) is one of the world’s most beautiful natural phenomena. When the Northern Lights dance in green on a dark autumn sky, it’s like a universe is speaking to us. Tromsø is one of the best places on earth to enjoy nature’s own light show. Come and join us for comfortable, flexible and fun Northern Lights activities to increase your chances of seeing the majestic Aurora.
Whale watching (late October – February): Herring attracts large numbers of humpback whales into the fjords around Tromsø, where they perform feeding frenzies and in big groups. They are joined for the herring feast by killer whales, which arrive in far greater numbers than ever before. Come and enjoy a close-up experience with some of the world’s biggest mammals on safe, exciting and educational whale watching safaris.
Winter (November – early April): As the days become shorter and the sun moves below the horizon, it leaves us with colours and light fit for a painter’s gaze. The temperature sinks and we start to long for the snow to come and create a playground for our most treasured winter activities. Come and discover the thrill of activities such as dog sledding, snowmobile safaris, reindeer sledding, skiing, snowshoeing and more.
Spring (April and May): Long, bright days, often plenty of snow, some warmth from the sun, temperatures above freezing during the day; The Tromsø spring is white and bright and a great time to be outdoors. Come and take part in fun activities such as skiing, snowshoeing and nature safaris as the north springs back to life after a long winter.
