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 was organizing Lavoo stays, guided trips and rentals for individual guests and groups on Kvaløya.

In 2010 the company changed the name to Tromsø Outdoor and moved to Tromsø center. That was beginning of the daily trips and activities with the departure from the city. In addition activity and rental center on Sjøgata 14 was opened. Guests could book there 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 begun to actively participate in many projects focused on promotion of Northern Norway and cooperation within cycling and skiing networks. Rentals were offered to many other activity providers and tour operators.

Ever since Tromsø Outdoor cooperates 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 developing further activities and rentals offer.
