Where roads end, adventures begin
"Our team is educated and passionate"
Wild, natural snow
"Wild winds and heavy snowfall is common in here." The weather. Nobody in Norway are ignorant about the weather and there is no small talk that miss this subject. The Norwegian weather is small talk subject number one. Kirsti looks into the heat of the burning logs.
"Most people find the snow as exotic as anything. And it is."
Snow is actually a very interesting phenomenon. Iced water coming from the sky. Strange, don´t you think? I love weather. All weather. And we are trained to deal with it. In the cold we make our guests safe. No worries at Camp Tamok."
Kirsti talks about the difference between the coastal climate of Tromsø, where you may experience less snow and even rain during winter, and this valley, the Tamok valley. "We have a dryer climate. Cold weather from the inland. That gives us predictable winters."
Another story is the fact that snow is not white.
The ice crystals that together make up a snowflake are transparent. It’s the great number of reflective surfaces that make the snow look white to us humans. And that’s good, because a white Christmas sounds much better than a transparent Christmas, don’t you agree?
