Arctic Adventure Tours was established on blue mountains in 1999 in Tromsø. Per-Thore and Hege started up with just four bare hands, some sledges and a few alaskan huskies. Since then the family business has expanded every year and today we have 120 dogs and an amazing team. We offer some of Northern Norway’s most exciting and wild Arctic adventure tours and expeditions.
We wisely choose our team members and have some of the best people in the field – providing you with competent, respected and experienced guides,skippers and expedition leaders. Together with our beloved Alaskan huskies we give you a professional team that we are very proud of.
Hege has a real passion for the outdoors. As well as managing a kennel of 120 dogs and a busy family life, she also finds time to make the famous homemade chocolate cake for our guests. Hege is our “Arctic mum”- a loving and caring person, something that reflects on everyone around her.
Together with his wife Hege, they are the heart of the family business. PT has lots of experience in excursions, expeditions all over the Arctic like crossing Greenland and driving with a team of huskies up to the North pole. He is always happy to share his experience and giving our guests a safe feeling being out with the dogs in the mountains.
Trine joined our team with her own four Alaskan huskies. With a nice sense of humor and a positive attitude every day she is our local guide from Tromso. With 11 years of experience with dogsledding she finds a nice combination of being our guide for the trips and good helping hand for Hege in the office.
