Tromsø Outdoor Activity and Rental Center

Tromsø Outdoor AS offers nature and outdoor-based activities in and around Tromsø throughout the year.


All activities are led by passionate, experienced, local guides, who ensure your safety is a priority during the trip.


Our Activity and Rental Center at Sjøgata 14 is sometimes called Tromsø's second tourist information office. We aim to provide our customers as much help as we can with planning their adventures!


Tromsø Outdoor history

The company was established under the name: Tromsø Natur og Fritid by Magne Aarbø in 2006 and based in Lauklines Kystferie on Kvaløya. Magne used to organize Lavoo stays, guided trips, and rentals for individual guests and groups on Kvaløya.

In 2010 the company changed its name to Tromsø Outdoor and moved to Tromsø center. This was the beginning of daily trips and activities with departures from the city. In addition the Activity and Rental Center at Sjøgata 14 was opened. Guests could book guided activities and rent outdoor equipment for their hikes, bike rides, ski and snowshoe expeditions, and explore the best of Tromsø on their own.

Tromso Outdoor began to actively participate in many projects focused on the promotion of Northern Norway and in cooperation with cycling and skiing networks. Rentals were offered to many other activity providers and tour operators.


Ever since, Tromsø Outdoor has cooperated closely with many companies in Norway and abroad, aiming to provide the best quality service, top notch equipment, complete holiday packages, and comprehensive information for guests coming to Northern Norway.


In August 2016 Tromsø Outdoor changed the company organization form to AS (aksjon selskap) and we continue to develop our activities and rentals offer further.
