Full description
Treat yourself to a guided tour of the magical new winter wonderland of the Tromsø Ice Domes. Travel in a climate-controlled bus from downtown Tromsø, and explore this fascinating construction surrounded by pristine Arctic wilderness. Depart from the Magic Ice Bar in the morning for a scenic 90-minute drive to the fairytale venue. Set among high mountains in the Tamok Valley, the Tromsø Ice Domes are built every year as the Polar Night approaches. On arrival at Tromso Ice domes, you will be greeted by your guide who will share their knowledge about the construction process of an ice hotel and about the impact the snow has on the survival of the arctic animals. Admire the ice hotel and how ice art reflects the unique bond between man and nature. Meet reindeer and have an ice shot and some hearty stew. The ice bars, ice cinema, ice bedrooms, and ice restaurant have themes ranging from local Sami culture to the Northern Lights conveyed through beautiful colored lighting and wonderful ice sculptures. Visit a small group of reindeer and enjoy a short video display in the ice cinema.

    The Ice Domes are definitely worth a visit. The works and ice sculptures are incredibly well designed and detailed. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to tell us a lot about Vikings and the Sami culture. In addition, I was very happy about the reindeer behind the house and about the vegetarian choice of food.

    A little more time in the ICE domes would have been great to be able to take a closer look at all the sculptures. I think the reindeer need a bigger enclosure. There are also only 4 very small ones lying and sleeping there. The food in the wooden hut was very tasty and sufficient.

    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.
