Come with us for dinner around the campfire. We'll share stories together as we cook over open flames. Listen to the fire crackle and the waves break against the shores as you enjoy an evening in the winter night. If we are lucky, we might even see the Northern Lights while we enjoy our campfire meal. 

This activity is a minimum impact activity. We'll meet you in the city centre and go together on public transport to the waters edge. Together, we will make a cosy campfire which we'll cook our meal on. We'll sit around on mats on the frost or snow covered ground & share stories about our campfire experiences & about campfire culture in Northern Norway. Relax by the campfire with hot chocolate before boarding the public bus back to Tromsø city centre. Though there is never a guarantee of seeing the Northern Lights we can sometimes
