1. From Tromsø: Northern Lights Visit at Camp Tamok
The right settings to experience the Aurora Borealis are a dark location, starry sky, previous solar storms and sitting by a fire outside watching the northern sky while keeping yourself warm. Join us at our wilderness center Camp Tamok which offers a great setting for Northern Lights observation. After a 90-minute bus drive from Tromsø city center, you will arrive in an untouched wilderness surrounded by darkness as the camp is far removed from the bright city lights and situated in a drier climate zone with clear inland mountain weather. This dry climate generates many cloud-free night skies in winter (as well as during summer). Upon arrival, we will provide you with warm winter clothing and give a presentation about the Aurora Borealis and how to photograph it. Depending on the weather conditions, we will take you to different locations around the camp (by foot) from where the northern lights can be observed. When it is time to warm up, we will serve a hot meal inside around the open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. After relaxing and warming up, it is time to board the bus again to be driven back to the city center of Tromsø. You will also get the option to book this activity excluding the bus transfer from Tromsø. When choosing this option, we expect you to arrive/leave by own transport at/from Camp Tamok.
