Touch of wilderness

Let us take you out to the winter landscapes of northern Norway and experience the untamed beauty of the arctic wilderness on a tour that combines a photography tour with a snowshoeing experience. All this in a small group, with a professional and friendly guide! Imagine a road trip through a gorgeous fjord landscape that stretches as far as your eyes can see, full of mountains, sandy beaches, and small fishing villages. Feel the cracking snow under your feet, fill your lungs with fresh air and admire the landscape full of fjords and mountains. Then to really connect with the arctic wilderness, we put on our snowshoes, leave civilization behind and venture deep into the countryside. That way you can immerse at the moment and put things in perspective, to clear your head and recharge your batteries. Our extremely small groups (max 8 guests) give our experienced guides the possibility to adjust the intensity level to your personal needs, share the knowledge and take professional pictures. Follow us into the wilderness and experience it for yourself!

FAQ

Cancellation by supplier (Northern Horizon)
Should external influences like weather conditions make it impossible for us to guarantee the safe conduction of the programs, we will cancel the tour. In this case, you can either chose to reschedule the tour or opt for a full refund. We thank you for your kind understanding!

Cancellation by guests
We understand that different situations may arise that can lead to the need for tour cancellation from your side as well. Nevertheless, as we put a lot of effort into the preparation of our tours and reserve all places once booked, bookings are only eligible for a full refund if canceled up until 48 hours prior to tour start. Bookings that are canceled after this time will not be refunded. If you book a tour and do not show up at the arranged meeting point, there will be no refund either.

Yes, you will. When the weather is too harsh and it is too risky to drive, we cancel the tour. Your safety is our priority. In this case, you will receive a full refund.

Remember to dress properly (please read “How should I be dressed for the tour?”). You can bring your own camera but it is not a must. We offer you a warm meal (vegetarian/vegan option) with hot drinks and delicious cookies. If you need to eat something before/after, please bring a snack with you.

We highly recommend to dress in 3-4 layers including long-sleeved and long-leg thermal underwear, 2 pairs of socks preferably woolen ones, fleece jumper and trousers, woolen jumper, windproof trousers, winter jacket, gloves, hat, and most important winter shoes.

We will provide you with thermal suits and boots to make sure you stay warm and cozy during the tour.

During most of our tours, it is possible to use a public toilet at a petrol station or other area that we pass during the car ride. However, there are also trips when we must go into the wilderness with no access the public toilets. In that case, you will have multiple natural options to pick from!
