A welcome package with a city map, train tickets (if relevant), and any other touristic information that we deem you may find useful will be waiting for you upon your arrival at your first hotel on your trip.
Enjoy time at leisure to explore at your own pace, or relax at your hotel.
Haven’t seen the Aurora yet? Enjoy the darkness out at the wilderness center on a “Aurora Borealis” visit. Here you can escape the city lights of Tromsø and take magnificent pictures of the Aurora Borealis. If the northern light does not appear you can enjoy the warmth of a Sami lavvo where you will be served hot drinks and can grill sausages over an open fire – the Norwegian style. A visit to the dog yard with puppies is well worth! Included: guide, warm clothes, snack, hot drink, transfer (30 minutes) are included in the cost.
Reindeer sledding is the oldest form of transport in the north, and an ancient part of Sami culture. You will be driving in pairs, with one sled for each reindeer. People of all ages can participate on this very “soft” adventure. This cultural adventure includes trying lasso-throwing, the way the Sami people still today catch their reindeers when they are rounded up for marking or slaughter. Also, you will learn about Sami culture and history. To conclude this excursion, you will be served a hot meal. Daytime trips give you an amazing view of the wild mountains in the area, and evening trips in the period November - March will give you a good chance to experience the Northern Lights. Pick-up by bus or minibus in the city centre of Tromsø, by the Rica Ishavshotel. Transfer time is 75 minutes to Camp Tamok: the starting and ending point for your excursion. (Insulated bodysuit, shoes, gloves and headwear are included).
You need no previous skills to drive a snowmobile, all you need is normal physical condition. We begin with a thorough safety introduction. The trail has a distance of 15 km each way, 30 km in total. The starting point is at 250 m above sea level, and the guide brings you up to 875 m. You will be driving in pairs, one driver and one passenger on each snowmobile, with opportunity to switch places during the trip. Due to the dramatic topography, a reduced speed is held during parts of the tour. The top point of the trail is a frozen lake, where you can speed up. If time and weather permit, you can try out ice fishing on this lake. At the end of the trip, you will be served a hot meal in a lavvu (Sami tent). Pick-up by bus or minibus in the city centre of Tromsø, by the Rica Ishavshotel. Transfertime is 75-minutes to Camp Tamok: the starting and ending point for your excursion. Insulated bodysuit, shoes, gloves, headwear, English speaking guide and transfer are included.

"Melissa Field was extremely helpful! She was courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly! She kept me updated on the status of everything and provided timely correspondence. She took ownership for any problems I had and remedied them. I had the most amazing time of my life in Iceland and Paris! I would not have experienced everything without the help of Kensington Tours."

"All of our guides were beyond fabulous! Our time in Dublin was much too short, would have loved to stay there at least one more full day. Would recommend extending this package to 15 days for any future visits. The train to Edinburgh was super! Beautiful scenery and great steak pies!"

"Everyone involved in our Portugal trip made it terrific. Exactly as advertised. Every event on time and most pleasant. Guides were well-informed, courteous and friendly. Really made for a great journey every time. Each hotel was clean, upgraded and staffed with knowledgeable and friendly folks. Breakfasts were complete -- almost too much to eat. It will always be a wonderful memory thanks to Kensington Tours."

"Overall, our tour in Spain was very enjoyable, and well planned and executed. Our private tour of the Alhambra was excellent. Virginia, tour guide for royal palace ruins outside of Cordoba, was also excellent. In Seville, we went to the Flamenco Show/dinner, and the Flamenco was outstanding!"

"My husband and I took a 3 week vacation to southern Europe and North Africa and had a great time. All the guides were very knowledgeable and bent over backwards to accommodate us. The arrangements made by Kensington went off without a hitch. This is our second trip with Kensington (we went to Peru in 2009) and we will certainly book with them again."

"Thank you for your follow up, we both loved our time in Croatia. It’s really a beautiful place, especially the coast. Your choice of hotels was great. It was an incredible view from the Bellevue hotel in Dubrovnik and the Vestibule in Split was in the best possible location. We were able to relax in our room listening to the wonderful singers in the courtyard and its central location made it so easy to walk anywhere we wanted to see with ease. "

"We just returned from a 10 day trip to Paris and Normandy. We spent three nights in Paris and then enjoyed a seven night cruise on the Seine to Normandy with AMA Waterways. The time in Paris was well spent and has piqued our interest to return for a more thorough visit. Guide Wafaa Lankey was superb in our visit to Versailles. The Seine cruise was relaxing and beautiful. So many wonderful little towns and we wished we had more time in each one to explore and enjoy.
We traveled to Croatia and Slovenia using Kensington earlier this year which was a fantastic trip."
