Wilderness Skills on Snowshoes, Tromsø Ice Domes & Reindeer Herd Visit
Here we try to spot the living counterparts of some of the animals that you will later see on display made out of snow and ice. Whilst searching for animal tracks, your guide will share knowledge of the very nature you're passing through. The gentle walk on snowshoes takes you further away from civilization and closer to the true Scandinavian wilderness. There's always some deep snow to make the trekking more demanding for anyone who's up for a challenge.
Our destination is the nature camp where the guide will help you chop wood, start a fire and cook some delicious lunch. Then, with your belly filled, you will be shown how you can survive the ice-cold arctic wilderness. How to sleep, eat, and find your way home are just a few of the skills we are more than happy to share with you.
Once you are done with your snowshoeing tour, your next excursion will begin with visiting the majestic Tromsø Ice Domes. Set among high mountains in the beautiful Tamok Valley, Tromso Ice Domes is built every year as the Polar Night approaches.
The snow and ice art reflects the unique bond between man and nature in a unique and breath-taking manner. The ice bar, our ice cinema, the ice bedrooms and ice restaurant have themes ranging from local Sami culture to the northern lights conveyed through beautiful coloured lighting and extraordinary ice sculptures.
At the Ice Domes, you will join a guided tour and learn about the construction process of an ice hotel and the impact the snow has on the survival of our arctic animals. There will be time to walk around freely and ask questions to the experienced guide. A nonalcoholic ice shot at the stunning ice bar is complimentary. In addition, you can purchase other drinks from the ice restaurant or ice bar.
We also have a small group of reindeer at the Tromsø Ice Domes for our guests to visit. Please note that there is no reindeer sledding, Sami culture, or petting the reindeer involved in this tour.
