When we arrived they provided us with warm clothes and helmets. One the guys gave us instructions on how to operate the snowmobiles with special iportance on the safety. We... More

Booked the snow mobile safari through Hurtigruten. The buses were there waiting for us when the ship docked, 17 of us in total doing the trip, too many for one mini bus so Hubby and I travelled in a bus on our own - felt like a private transfer. Viktor, who drove us, was a pleasure to chat with on... More

We did the safari on 27 Jan 2017. We were given warm overalls, gloves, boots, helmet. There was a guide who gave us instructions on how to operate the snowmobile. They emphasized on safety. We saw the northern lights from the office and again on the frozen. it was pitch dark. A very memorable night. Once we were back to... More

This was overall excellent. Run by Hans Halle who was kind, knowledgeable and spoke fantastic English, the tour was done within 3-4 hours and well run. We also were lucky enough to see the northern lights which we missed whilst in Iceland. The snowmobile rides and king crabs were excellent. My only grouse was that for us paying for the... More

The tour was exactly as described and more, because of the welcoming and friendly hosts. Instructions on riding the snow mobile patiently explained, transforming us from novice to expert Drivers! The king crabs are a sure thing and they taste just as fresh as they look. Northern lights are a bonus but going with Barents, they sure know how to... More

I had booked a snowmobile and king crab tour, expecting that it would be a small group activity ( as all my other outdoor activities in Norway have been ). Imagine my horror on discovering I had been placed on a trip with a bus load of almost 40 tourists. Having done some fantastic snowmobiling a few days earlier though... More

Great fun trying out the snow mobile through the frozen sea and watching how snow crabs are caught from the water beneath the ice. Of course the yummy free flow of what else but HUGE snow crab! Most importantly is the wonderful crew - friendly and humorous make all guests feel at ease almost immediately. Definitely one of the highlights... More

A professional team yet with the warmth of a family. Hans was excellent in leading the pack including the Safety briefing. Overalls, boots and gloves are provided. A pity we went rather late at night and couldn't really see much scenic views in the dark and yet it was too cloudy to see the Aurora either. The other highlight was... More

Did the Norwegian snowcrab dinner and snow mobile activity. Tour guide was great and spontaneous. He paid close attention to our safety and made sure that everyone had a photo opportunity. As he would have quoted it - silence is luxury. A must do when you do come up to kirkenes.
