Respectful with nature

Being in nature is our passion. Photographing wildlife and spectacular natural phenomena is our driving force. Without our beautiful nature, we would not do what we do, and we like to share the importance of taking care of the surroundings during our trips.

Since we started, we have focused on bringing something back to our small community. We involve local people and small local businesses in what we do, and leave as few traces as possible. Be a considerate explorer!

Accommodation

We recommend our partner Lauklines for accommodation during your stay. Their spaceous, high standard cabins are located right by the sea in the scenic Kattfjord, 35 km from Tromsø.

Arriving

We are located above the arctic circle in northern Norway, 35km from Tromsø. All our activities are available with pick up from Tromsø.

You can reach Tromsø by plane from a number of destinations, Oslo has the most frequent departures. You can reach us by car through Norway, Finland and Sweden. The trains in Norway reach the latitude of Fauske, from there onwards a bus transfer is possible.
