Snowshoeing, Ice Domes & Reindeer Visit - Excl. Transport

Norwegian Travel

Take a walk-through winter wonderland on snowshoes away from civilization and into Northern Norway wilderness. After, join the guided tour through the Ice Domes and get to marvel at the incredible ice sculptures and snow carvings! Finish it off by visiting the mystical reindeer outside the domes.   

Note: This option does not include bus transportation. Please arrive at Camp Tamok, 15 minutes prior to the start of the activity. 

 

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 on which we will grill sausages for lunch together.

Once we've arrived back at the camp, 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, listen to the guide telling stories related to the snow- and ice carvings inside the domes and enjoy 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.
