My daughter and I were in a group with 4 French speakers and we are English speakers. The guide did a fantastic job guiding in both French and English! He was very concerned that everyone have a great tour. We made extra stops because we saw reindeer 3 different times. The scenery was awesome. Overall it was very enjoyable and I would define recommend.

It was a wonderful 4-hour journey, enriched by stories, I guess, glimpses of those who have lived for a while and have totally integrated into the place. Wonderful colors, fjords, coral beach, first settlement of fishermen, first rural settlement… .. we were lucky enough to meet two reindeer and see two hawks… .. thanks ❤️

We were five people on the arctic fjords tour. The guides was very nice and told us a lot of interesting stuff about the different places that we visited. The places were beautiful and we enjoyed a nice lunch by the beach. Extra points to Cristian, that made us feel very safe while we were on the road would recommend!

I highly recommend this tour! We saw breathtaking spots and explored the islands Kvayola and Sommaroy. Our guide Christian was amazing, very friendly and told us so many interesting things about the fjords, the nature and the country. Thank you very much for this wonderful tour!

An amazing day with our guide, even though the weather was against us, we kept moving and found sunshine and amazing views.
