This tour is conducted by Camp Tamok & Ice Dome. The right settings to experience the mystical Aurora Borealis at its best include a good location, clear sky, solar storms and being outside watching the northern sky. Camp Tamok holds all of these for an unforgettable Northern Lights evening as it is surrounded by untouched wilderness, providing exclusive access to the darkness far removed from the bright city lights. Furthermore, it is situated in a different climate zone that offers more stable weather and likeliness of clear sky. As an alternative to chasing the Northern Lights by bus until the early hours of the morning, our Northern Lights evenings at Camp Tamok offer a comfortable, personal and authentic experience within a fixed timeframe.
Upon arrival at Camp Tamok, we will provide warm winter clothing and a thorough presentation about the Aurora Borealis and how to photograph this natural phenomenon. If the sky is starry, we will take you on a short hike near our wilderness center to discover different settings to photograph the Northern Lights. If the sky is cloudy or there is no sign of the Northern Lights, you will still have good value for your money.
Whether you see this amazing spectacle or not, a trip to Camp Tamok is an adventure in itself. The dark and silent surroundings provide a genuine Arctic atmosphere. 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. This is an adventure not to be missed!
