    It is a beautiful drive (1.5 hr) to the camp where the Ice Domes are located. We did a morning trip and I would suggest you sit on the right side of the bus for the best views and photos. The left side has best views on the return but photographs are harder due to the setting sun and glare. The tour is described as 4 hours but it left on time at 10:30 but we did not return until 4:00 PM. Important to know in case you have another event for the evening. They served a fish soup and piping hot coffee/tea/instant cocoa. They break the bus group up into two groups which is a good plan. Half go to eat and see reindeer while the other group goes through the Ice Domes.

    Very impressive ice domes and carvings, guide gave a great introduction to Vikings, Sami people and Scandinavian mythology. Honestly, we thought it would just be a time killer before our flight that night, but it was one of our favorite parts. FYI vegan lunch option was much better than meat. Also, there are only 4 reindeer, but they are friendly. The bus driver was also fantastic, friendly and professional and an amazing driver, even in heavy snowing conditions.

    This was an unreal experience! The Domes are so well created and so much time and effort goes into making them. The tour guides made the experience very interesting telling us about the history of Norway and how the domes were Inspired by Norse mythology. The tour guides stuck to time frames and we was provided with lunch. An option of fish soup or vegetable soup for vegetarians.
