Northern Lights Visit
Upon arrival at Camp Tamok, we will provide warm winter clothing and a thorough presentation about the Aurora Borealis and how to photograph this natural phenomenon. If the sky is starry, we will take you on a short hike near our wilderness center to discover different settings to photograph the Northern Lights. If the sky is cloudy or there is no sign of the Northern Lights, you will still have good value for your money.
Whether you see this amazing spectacle or not, a trip to Camp Tamok is an adventure in itself. The dark and silent surroundings provide a genuine Arctic atmosphere. Please note that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and they can appear early in the evening or late at night. If spotting the Northern Lights is your main aim, we recommend booking an overnight package combined with other activities. This is an adventure not to be missed!
