Arctic Adventure Tours was established with 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.
