Snowshoeing, Ice Domes Guided Tour & Reindeer Visit
For this combination tour, you will be picked up from the city center of Tromsø, from where you will be taken to our wilderness center in Camp Tamok, a 90-minute scenic bus drive away.
At Camp Tamok, you will first set off on your snowshoe adventure. We will provide you with warm winter clothing and the required equipment for the hike. For anyone who’s up for an extra challenge, there’s deep snow paths to make the trekking more demanding.
Along the way, we will also teach you some good ice-cold arctic wilderness survival skills: how to sleep outdoors, what to eat and how to find your way home. Our destination is a nature camp where the guide will continue teaching you how to chop wood and start a fire. They will then cook a delicious lunch while you rest.
Once you are done with your snowshoeing tour, your next excursion will be a guided visit to the majestic Tromsø Ice Domes. Here you will learn about the construction process of the domes and the impact the snow has for 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 will come to an end and it will be time to board the bus back to Tromsø city center.
