Overnight in the Ice Domes
For the tour you will be picked up from Tromsø city center for a ~75 min drive to the ice hotel. A guide will be at your disposal from the moment you arrive at Tromsø Ice Domes until you depart the following morning. 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. You will be shown to your ice suite, where you will spend the night. The double beds in the ice rooms are surrounded by an ice frame and you will sleep in expedition sleeping bags on a comfortable mattress covered by reindeer skins.
In the evening of the stay your guide will take you on an adventure in the surrounding area of Tromsø Ice Domes. A nice walk on snowshoes will take you further away from civilization and closer to the true Scandinavian nature. Away from the city, in the darkness of the valley, you will have a much better chance to spot the Northern Lights and if spotted, the guide will be more than happy to help you take a memorable photograph. Whilst searching for animal tracks you will hear about the very nature you’re passing through. The destination of the hike will be our nature camp where the guide will show you how to make a fire and you may help to grill dinner.
Then it is time for your magical night at the Ice Domes! After waking up in this winter wonderland with the entire ice hotel at your disposal, your guide will serve you a traditional Norwegian breakfast, followed by a dogsledding tour where you will have a chance to drive your own team of huskies. Upon completion, you will be served a hot meal and will be ready for a drive back to Tromsø, where you can reflect on your memorable adventure.
