With BMW China on Northern Light Hunting
The northern lights, that mysterious green glow, are almost always there, even in summer, explains Ivar Haugen, one of the founders of Tromsø Safari. "We just do not see it when it's light or overcast," he says, adding, "The trick is to use the wind to know where the cloud cover will rupture next and see where the measurements are coming from Northern lights are to be expected. "
Haugen has 20 years of experience in the Northern Lights Hunt. "You know what's important," he says. The employees of BMW have come specially for this from China, soon announced Volkswagen from Germany.
USP in the Arctic
The Northern Lights, the important USP for the region in the dark winter - it is located in the middle of the northern lights belt only about 2000 kilometers from the North Pole, more northern than Iceland or Alaska at a latitude with Greenland. Thanks to the Gulf Stream, however, it is much warmer here, the average temperatures are around -4 degrees Celsius. 26 Company, which offer northern lights observation, therefore, there are now in the city.
Starting point for each northern lights hunt are four base stations, which are equipped with Sami tents, and from which the group can be quickly brought to the northern lights spot if necessary. For this, buses are chartered. Up to 400 people at the same time can thus enjoy the spectacle of nature - even if this is probably a bit turbulent.
Teambuilding in the Sami-Tipi
But there are also many activities offered here - Tromsø Safari sees itself as a network for a large number of providers.
For example, groups can set up a Sami teepee together as a team building measure and then share local food, such as rentir and salmon wraps, by the fire. Another competition is practicing traditional Sami hunting techniques such as lasso throwing and bow and arrow shooting. Also possible are biathlon competitions.
Other potential activities include kayaking, rock climbing, snowmobile or RIB boat tours, glacier or snowshoeing. It is also possible to take the cabin train to the mountain Fjellheisen. There is a restaurant for up to 130 people available, which can also be rented for meetings.
Dog sled tours and whale watching
Also popular in winter are dog sled tours - the largest Huskie farms in the area have up to 300 sled dogs.
We visit the former seal hunter Thormod Schuoll Erickson on his fishing boat, which had chartered the day before Microsoft. With whale watching, there is room for up to 70 people, and team-building trips in which groups collect fish together and eat together afterwards, but fewer people should be scheduled.
