The Northern Lights visit at our wilderness camp is an excursion with the main purpose of watching the Northern Lights - Aurora Borealis!
Camp Tamok is located a 75-minute drive inland from the city of Tromso. The camp is therefore located in a different climate zone. Here, you find stable dry weather with many days of clear sky. Due to the stable climate of this location the persistent Aurora watcher will have excellent chances of spotting the frail rays of this beauty. Also, in this uninhabited area, no artificial light will disturb your experience or your attempt to capture the Aurora Borealis with your camera. The guide will focus specifically on sharing tips and techniques on how to photograph the Aurora.
The excursion includes a 2 kilometer hike through the valley at night-time. If the sky is cloudy or there is no sign of the Northern Lights, your will still have good value for your money. A trip to the wilderness camp is an adventure in itself. The dark and quiet surroundings hold a genuine Arctic atmosphere. Our guide has a lot of interesting knowledge and stories to share with you by the open fire.
If the sky is cloudy or there is no sign of the Northern Lights, we will head off on a Northern Lights chase by minibus. There are several hotspots within a short driving distance of the camp.
