The Two Sides of Tromso Package: Silent Whale Watching & Dog Sledding
2 nights, 2 very different activities. Enjoy the peace of whale watching & the fun of dog sledding at Camp Tamok!
Day 1: Evening/Night - Check-in & overnight at Scandic Ishavshotel at a suitable time for you.
Day 2: Activity 1. Silent Whale Watching - Enjoy an eco-friendly whale-safari tour. On our way to the whales we use a hybrid engine, and as we get nearer, we switch to a silent electric engine. This allows us to get closer to the whales without disturbing them. Once we get to the whale sighting area we spend one hour admiring the whales. On the way, you can take in the breathtaking views of frozen landscapes in comfortable, warm lounges with panoramic windows. You’ll find a selection of food and drinks for purchase onboard.
Activity 2. Dog Sledding at Camp Tamok - The evening tour of dog sledding offers an excellent opportunity to experience the breath-taking Northern Lights from your dog sled. You do not need any previous skills to mush your own husky team. All you need is reasonable physical health and eagerness to try something new and exciting. Upon arrival at Camp Tamok we will provide warm winter clothing and begin the dog sledding with thorough safety instructions and a practical demonstration.
After the dog sledding adventure, we will serve you a hot meal in a traditional North Norwegian setting around the open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. After relaxing and warming up, you can board the bus back to the city and reflect on a memorable adventure.
Evening/Night - Overnight at Scandic Ishavshotel.
Day 3: Morning - Breakfast & Check-out of Scandic Ishavshotel.
