Dog sledding, Ice Domes Guided Tour, and Reindeer Visit
DUpon arrival at the camp, you will be provided with warm winter clothing and given thorough safety instructions and a practical demonstration on dog sledding from our lovely English-speaking guides. Once you are ready, you will set off for your trip accompanied by four-legged partners. Two people will be sharing a sled each, one in the “musher’s” place and one as a passenger, with the opportunity of switching places halfway along the track.
After your dog sledding adventure, the next excursion will begin with a visit to the Tromsø Ice Domes. Set among high mountains in the beautiful Tamok Valley, Tromsø Ice Domes is built every year as the Polar Night approaches. At the Ice Domes you will join a guided tour and learn about the construction process of the ice hotel and the impact the snow has for the survival of our arctic animals. There will be time to walk around freely and ask the experienced guide questions, as well as admire the unique snow and ice art carved by professional artists. A non-alcoholic ice shot at the stunning ice bar is complimentary. There is also a small group of reindeer at the Tromsø Ice Domes for our guests to visit.
