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 true Scandinavian wilderness. For anyone who’s up for a challenge there’s always some deep snow to make the trekking more demanding.
Our destination is the nature camp where the guide will help you chop wood, start a fire and cook some delicious lunch. With your belly filled you will be shown how you can survive the ice cold arctic wilderness. How to sleep, what to eat and how to find your way home are just a few of the skills we are more then happy to share with you.
Once you are done with your snowshoeing tour, your next excursion will begin with a visit to 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 colored lighting and wonderful 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 for the survival of our arctic animals. There will be time to walk around freely and ask questions to the experienced guide. A non-alcoholic ice shot at the stunning ice bar is complementary. We also have a small group of reindeer located at the Ice Domes for our guests to visit, take photos, and watch our guide feed.
Included: Transportation, guided tour of the ice hotel, short movie in the ice cinema, English speaking guide, non alcoholic ice shot in the ice bar, snowshoeing tour with a light meal, reindeer visit and clothing for the tours
