Winter Arctic Landscapes With Citizen Science

Adult Price from
1350 NOK per
5 hrs

Norway is known for its beautiful fjords where the mountains meet the sea - and we'd like to keep it this way! Come with us for a road trip like no other. You'll discover places with amazing scenery, admire arctic wilderness and take memorable shots. You'll also experience & participate in one of our citizen science projects, where you'll have the opportunity to collect data from our stunning beaches. Following our validated methodology, you'll be provided much-needed data to help fight to protect our tundra. After the collection, that data is uploaded to our research partners' database, where they'll use it in their research that will help inform policy-making. 

After our science contribution is done, we can lay back & enjoy the homemade lunch we have prepared for you. This is the most ethical trip for you to experience the extraordinary nature of Northern Norway. Explore different locations on the islands to see the fjords, mountains, beaches, lakes, forests and small villages in the Norwegian countryside. On this trip you will get to beautiful places to take photos, relax in a peaceful atmosphere and enjoy the views and sounds of nature, and if we are lucky, we can even see some wildlife! Your guide will assist you with your camera, if needed, and will be taking photos of the fjord sightseeing activity. These photos will be shared after the fjord tour in web-sized resolution. After enjoying your included homemade lunch and hot chocolate we'll return you to Tromso.
