    Guide Apostolos Der City Walk durch Tromsø mit Herrn Apostolos war sehr informativ und durchwegs spannend. Alle unsere Fragen wurden sehr freundlich und ausführlich beantwortet. Es gab keinen Zeitdruck und dadurch war es ein wunderbarer und höchst angenehmer und noch dazu sehr lehrreicher Vormittag.
    Zum Abschluss war sogar noch ein wohlschmeckender Lunch in einem sehr gemütlichen Restaurant inclusive, bei dem wir von unserem besonders netten und zuvorkommenden Guide noch weitere tolle Tips für ergänzende Ausflüge bekamen.
    Wer das Glück hat, mit Herrn Apostolos den City Walk erleben zu dürfen, wird mit vielen interessanten Details und Informationen zur Stadt und Gegend bereichert.
    Sehr empfehlenswert.

    Explore the Paris of the North with Tromso City Walks Although we has already spent a few days in beautiful northern Norway including Tromso, we booked a city walking tour with Tromso City Walks.
    Our guide was Eli and she is a very passionate and caring individual who proudly showed us around beautiful Tromso . One of the highlights of this tour was a visit to the excellent Polar Museum and our guide enhanced our visit with her detailed knowledge of the museum and its exhibits.
    Our tour also included a wonderful lunch at Full Steam and i would certainly recommend this tour and thank you again to Eli for this wonderful walking tour.

Dear Guests,
Dear Partners,

On March, 12 2020 the Norwegian Directorate of Health Bjørn Guldvog has adopted comprehensive measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and to help maintain the necessary health and care services.

The Directorate of Health decided that everyone who comes from outside the Nordic countries should quarantine for 14 days, regardless of whether they have symptoms or not. Retroactive from 27 February. This means if you booked a tour with Northern Norway Travel and you are within the Nordic Country before 27 February 2020 with approved documentations, we will try to run the tour with you.

If you arrived after 27 February to the Nordic country, you have to be in quarantine and are not allowed to attend the booked tour with us. Due to this new measure, we would like you to reach out to us and cancel the booking if you have to go into quarantine or to reschedule the booking free of charge within the year 2020.

If you have to cancel the booking please contact your travel insurance company for refund due to your quarantine.

Guests who booked via online travel agents or other third parties are advised to contact their booking provider for information on their policies and for assistance. All tours until 26 March 2020 are affected until further notice.

Thank you for your support and your loyalty. We will keep you updated through this dynamic situation and cannot wait to welcome you at one of our tours soon.

All the best,

Your Northern Norway Travel team
