On this exciting full-day tour, we have selected activities that will be fun to do together. We start with dog sledding, continue with a camp stay and finish with a Northern Lights experience. This adventure will require some physical effort but just enough to have memorable winter fun.
You do not need any previous skills to mush your own husky team. All you need is reasonable physical health and an eagerness to give it a try. Upon arrival at Camp Tamok, we dress in warm winter gear and begin the dog sledding with thorough safety instructions and a practical demonstration. You will share the sled with your partner: You will be the “musher” (driver) half the way and can sit back and encourage your partner the rest of the way. Depending on snow conditions, we will spend approx. 1 hr 30 min to complete the 12 km dog sledding.
After the dog sledding adventure, we will serve you a hot lunch in a traditional North Norwegian setting around the open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. During the relaxing camp stay, you can enjoy a hot cup of coffee or tea while feeding the campfire and stroll around the wilderness camp together. The unique environment at the camp is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the silence together. Our camp host will share stories about the local area and make sure you do not miss the early Northern Lights if they appear.
During the Northern Lights evening, we will provide thorough presentation about the Aurora Borealis and how to photograph this natural phenomenon. We will also serve a hot meal in a traditional North Norwegian setting around the open fire. If the sky is starry at Camp Tamok, we will take you on a short hike near our wilderness centre to stay warm and experience different settings to photograph the Northern Lights. However, if it is cloudy but there are better conditions in the neighbouring valley, our guide will drive you to another spot to try to spot the Northern Lights.
Whether you see this amazing spectacle or not, a trip to Camp Tamok is an adventure in itself. 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.
