    Pleasant transportation. We were able to observe orcas from the boat and follow them for a while. The weather was foggy but we could still observe them. The night in the lavvu was pleasant, the bed is comfortable and the duvets are warm. I removed a star because the management of the fire during the night was not easy and the electric heater was not sufficient. The meals were good and the guides friendly. Do it again on a less foggy night to better see the aurora borealis.

    Unique and incredible experience! I recommend x1000 We had the chance to see orcas and even whales which gave us a great ballet, a real chance to be able to see the animals in their natural habitat. Additional equipment is provided for the boat and luckily because it is cold. The night at Lavu is magical: meals with the hosts who are very kind people. The dinner was delicious. Then we lit a fire outside and shared a moment with them while waiting for the Northern Lights. We had a great show and they gave us tips for taking pictures.

    Absolutely recommended and one of the best tours we did in Tromso. The bus driver took us early morning to the whale watch and he was super friendly and helpful. Then on the whale watch everybody was very receptive and welcoming and we saw so many whales plus the view from the surroundings was fantastic! And then driving all the way to the lavvos and the team in there couldn’t be better! Food was delicious, we saw the aurora and they were so nice that they even took photos of us as we had no proper cameras. After that a lovely bonfire at the beach with thermal suits provided and a nice cup of tea and muffins. Breakfast next day was the best ever! The whole team was so fantastic and we would go back again for sure. Thank you!
