Spending the night in a crystal lavvo is a one-of-a-kind experience not to miss! Everything is well organized, we were picked up with the larger group in Tromsø, transferred by bus and ferry to get to our final location. They have thermal suites and boots, but we brought our own just in case. We went snowshoeing and snowmobiling - both were great fun! The food was really good, plus tea/coffee whenever you want, the house is open 24/7 which is also where the toilet is. Even though it was very cloudy and we didn't see the northern lights, it was still totally worth sleeping in the crystal lavvo. The wood stove keeps it toasty warm and is easy to manage (we slept really well), there's outlets, & no overhead light but there is a candlelight. You have plenty of time to enjoy the property between activities, and a campfire in the evening. Everybody working there is super accommodating and easy-going. Highly recommend this experience while in Tromsø, well worth it!

This was an absolutely extraordinary trip that I will never forget. From the ferry cruise over the Fjord to get to the Lyngen Alps, to the courtesy, frendliness and professionalism of the staff of the Camp Troll team, everything was perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed my first time ever on a snowmobile. The mountains were just enthralling and they take you on a very full course all around the edge of the Lyngen Alps. Everything is there for you, including any extra layers, boots, the whole works. It felt like such a full day and was so satisfying. I wanted to immediately do it all again! Hopefully will one day!

It was a relaxed, no stress activity. Competent guides that know their stuff and put you at ease. A good sense of humor. It was a smaller group witch we appreciated very much. Équipement ans snowmobiles in top condition. Very clean place.

Very cool tour. Like all tours very well organized. Are partly also quite briskly jetted over the trail. Definitely depends on the group.

The whole excursion from start to finish was amazing. Very well organised, with a friendly and fun team.
