Mountains, our fjord, the quiet and peaceful - 20 minutes from langnes airport
I always remember with great excitement, meeting local people when I visit different places in the world. Having the pleasure of getting a small insight in how people live their everyday lives is precious to me. This is what we would like to give you, a chance of visiting our lives. To live our lives during the winter months of Tromsø. Take part in our days, being dependent on the weather conditions, coping with all the snow, how we appreciate the Aurora, through months of no sun above the horizon and how we dress. We want to show you how we live in our arctic fjord. We want you to be a part of it. It is all about going local with the locals.
What is it like to live in the dark for 3 months? How do we dress when we walk outside? Does everyone get headlamps for Christmas? We like to tell you about how it is to live here all year around, how we manage the dark and the constant sun. The tour will combine contemporary life in the fjord, with the story about why we live like we do. We will pass the riverfall and the oldest house in the fjord, covered with fuelcans from the big German warship Tirpitz (lenke) that was bombed in the fjords of Tromsø at the end of WW2.
We walk as fast as the group prefer, and both children and old people can join the tour. We will stop for pictures at nice spots, carefully avoiding trespassing of private properties. Halfway there will be serving of my mothers traditional lefse along with a warm drink , at her cottage next to the renovated barn.
We want to create an atmosphere. We want to give you our lifestyle for a couple of hours. We want to invite you into our lives and into our homes. All our trips are easy to enjoy. Both for children, adult and elderly.
