SCAN Adventure was founded in September 2005

   by Karina Weinschenk

Born in East-Germany and raised by a Norwegian mother and a German father, I always believed that one day I would live in Northern Norway. While growing up, my mother used to tell me amazing stories about this spectacular region with its mountains, fjords, the Midnight Sun and the Northern Lights.
From an early age, I was intrigued and promises myself that I would travel above the Arctic Circle to Northern Norway and experience this amazing region. Finally, in June 1998, my childhood became true. I moved to Tromsø, and have lived her ever since.
The following year I became a tourist guide in Tromsø and later in wider Scandinavia. This enabled me to share the beauty of our regions with tourists from around the world.
I have now been working as a tourist guide for many years and I still enjoy this work more than ever – it is my love and it is my passion.
We have run successful Northern Lights safaris since 2009. The scenery, the Northern Lights and the people around us are constantly changing, which makes our work very interesting and special. The knowledge we have acquired means we don`t leave anything to change.

We also offer customized city walking tours and bespoke tours to interesting places in our region.
One of my aims is to educate enthusiastic guides/drivers and we have special focus on offering friendly, personalised service – that little extra!! We want to feel safe, comfortable and really enjoy their experience. It is also important our guests understand, and between us we speak a variety of languages: Norwegian, English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.

We wish you a warm welcome to Norway, Tromsø and SCAN ADVENTURE!

Kindest regards

Karina Weinschenk and the team
