Full description

Join in for this authentic combination tour to Camp Tamok and Tromsø Ice Domes, both located in the beautiful Tamok Valley, a 90-minute scenic drive away from the city center of Tromsø.

Upon arrival at the camp, get ready to set off on your snowmobiling adventure. You will be provided warm winter clothing and the necessary snowmobile gear. Go through the safety instructions and listen to a practical demonstration on how to drive a snowmobile. You will be driving in pairs, one driver and one passenger on each snowmobile, with the opportunity to switch places during the trip. The tour will take you past scenic mountains, through the snow-covered Finn valley, starting at 250 meters above sea level.

You will be on this snowmobiling adventure for approximately 2 hours, depending on the weather and snow conditions. After the snowmobiling activity, settle in for lunch before your tour continues with a guided tour at the Ice Domes.

Marvel at the incredible ice sculptures and snow carvings, learn about the construction process of the domes and the impact the snow has on all life in the Arctic, and have a non-alcoholic ice shot at the ice bar.

As part of this combination tour, there will be some free time to walk around by yourself and visit the reindeer that are herding next to the Ice Domes. Eventually, your daytime adventure has come to an end and it will be time to board the bus back to Tromsø city center.

    A nice experience, but went too slow in column driving. I wish the snowmobile ride was much longer. It was fun to be able to ride fast on the scooter in open land when it was not driving in a column. The ice domes were exciting to look at, the guide was very good at telling the story behind the construction of the domes and the design of the statues. You had plenty of time to look around alone in the different rooms. The lunch in the lavvo was perfectly ok.

    Everything has wonderful fkt. First the pick up and then the drive to the camp. There we found out that in the event of an accident you have to pay 6,000 kroner (600 euros) for damage, but you can easily secure this by paying 150 kroner (15 euros) with a card on the spot. Then you get really cool equipment from the team: helmet, very warm thermal suit, boots, balaclava and gloves. -> I still recommend two pairs of socks and two pairs of gloves (preferably light/thin ones that you can easily pull under a second pair). The team then gives a short introduction to controlling the snowmobile. I have to admit that I was terrified of those things. I didn't want to drive alone and I didn't want to be at the front either :) and what happened? I was allowed to ride alone and right behind our guide, BUT. it was the best thing that could have happened to me. After 2 minutes I got the hang of it and when everyone changed after 1/2 of the route, I was allowed to continue driving.
