Camp Tamok is situated in the Tamok Valley, a 75 minutes drive from Tromsø. During your evening, you will experience the Valley of Tamok with high chances of seeing the Northern Lights in this uninhabited area with no artificial light as your dogs pull you through the wilderness. After a traditional hot meal and overnight stay either in a wilderness timber cabin or wooden lavvu (Sami tent), depending on availability. You will go on a reindeer safari before returning to Tromsø in the afternoon.
Camp Tamok offers a taste of the genuine wilderness!
Spending the night “outdoors” like this in winter time is an Arctic experience in itself. You will sleep in our winter sleeping bags, on top of several reindeer skins. Please note that you will be sharing the lavvu with other visitors, but you will have your own sleeping berth.
With our 2 days & 1 night program, you can spend the night in the timber cabin at our wilderness camp after the evening adventure. The cabin has four bedrooms and two lofts, sleeping up to 14 guests. Staying in the cabin can therefore be very social, as you can expect to meet and get to know other guests from all parts of the world
Warm woolen underwear and socks are recommended for this excursion.
Fleece-wear is useful as a second layer. Warm outer clothes and boots will be provided.
Bring sunglasses and sunscreen (from February to April).
