The company Scan Adventure was founded in September 2005 by Karina Weinschenk.
Born in East- Germany and raised by a North-Norwegian mother and a German father I always believed that one day I would live in Norway. While growing up, my mother used to tell me amazing stories about this spectacular country with its mountains, fjords, the Midnight Sun and the Northern Lights.
Already at this time I was intrigued and I promissed myself that I would travel to Norway and experience the country.
Finally, in June 1998 my childhood dream became true. I moved to Tromsø, and have been living here ever since.
The following year I became a tourist guide in Tromsø, later on a travel guide in Scandinavia. In that way I could show the beauty of our regions to tourists from across the world.
After working as a tourist guide in Tromsø and Scandinavia for a few years, I believed it was necessary to start my own business in order to build a better relationship to my customers and expand. In addition to starting this business, I studied “Travel and Tourism” at the “University College” in Harstad to gain a better understanding within my field of interest. Working as a guide means also learning to me forever.
Since 15 years ago I am working as a guide and I still enjoy it very much.
Since 2009 we have been successfully running the Northern Lights safaris. The scenery, the Northern Lights and the people are constantly changing, which makes our work very interesting and special.
We are also offering customized walking trips in town and tailor-made trips to interesting places in our region.
We are educating enthusiastic guides/drivers and my team always help me to improve the service.
Due to our experience and customer feedback we can offer you interesting tours and a great service.
We also speak different languages: Norwegian, English, German, Dutch, French, Italian and Spanish.
We wish you a warm welcome to Norway and Tromsø.
