Northern Lights Visit - Incl. Transport

Make your dream of experiencing the mystical Northern Lights come true. Join us as we take you to the right setting to view the Aurora Borealis. Camp Tamok has all the required conditions - dark location, starry sky, and a place to sit by the fire and watch the northern sky while keeping warm.

After a 90-minute bus drive from Tromsø city center, you will arrive in an untouched wilderness surrounded by darkness as the camp is far removed from the bright city lights and situated in a drier climate zone with clear inland mountain weather. This dry climate generates many cloud-free night skies in winter (as well as during summer).  

Upon arrival, we will provide you with warm winter clothing and give a presentation about the Aurora Borealis and how to photograph it. Depending on the weather conditions, we will take you to different locations around the camp (by foot) from where the northern lights can be observed. When it is time to warm up, we will serve a hot meal inside around the open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent.  

After relaxing and warming up, it is time to board the bus again to be driven back to the city center of Tromsø.
