Arctic Truck Driving Daytime
We have daily departures via scenic fjord and mountain landscape every morning and evening throughout the winter season. The daytime adventures offer wonderful views while the evening tours offer excellent opportunities to experience the majestic Northern Lights. If you want to experience both, we offer Full-Day packages with a variety of combinations.
Upon arrival at Camp Tamok, we will provide warm winter gear and begin the adventure with thorough safety instructions and a practical demonstration. It is then time to hit the road! We start by driving about 20 km on the road before heading off-road in snow-covered fields and challenging landscape. You will be surprised how the Arctic Truck navigates through the snow and challenging terrain. While accompanied by a guide, you will experience what it is like to be in the driver’s seat of Arctic Truck and take it for a good spin! This promises to be the thrill of a lifetime!
After driving through the snow and parking the Arctic truck, we will serve you a hot meal in a traditional North Norwegian setting around the open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. You can relax, warm up and reflect on a memorable driving experience before heading back to Tromso.
Please note: If you can drive a normal car, you can drive an Arctic Truck. All you need is a regular driving licence and a sense of adventure.

After the scenic ride from Tromsø to Camp Tamok, you will meet your guide that will accompany you for the rest of the day. If necessary, he will provide you with warm winter clothing, but you usually should be okay with regular winter clothing. The Arctic Truck is well-heated as any other standard car.
The off-road area is a short ride from the camp. Usually, the guide will be driving on the main road, and once at the off-road, you will sit behind the weals and enjoying the snowy paths.
To Camp Tamok we travel by big bus together with guests doing other activities like Dog Sledding, Snowmobiling, Reindeer Sledding and our guests staying overnight.
Once at camp accompanied by your guide you will board the Arctic Truck - a specially build a car for offroad driving.
Camp Tamok exclusively built as wilderness camp for outdoor activities. We have found a fair balance for authentic but still comfortable holidays. Our camp is composed of traditional and rustic Northern Norwegian buildings consisting of several lavvus, timber cabins heated by wood stoves and oil lamps complementing with modern kitchen, showers and toilet facilities.
We have found the perfect location with the wilderness at our doorstep. Our Husky Kennel and Reindeer Enclosure is the mark to step into the uninhabited winter wonderland.
We recommend dressing according to the season and in layers so you can adjust your clothing to the weather conditions, but if necessary, you can borrow winter suits, hat, mittens and boots at the camp.
