This tour is conducted by Destination Tromsø. On this package, you will get the chance to combine two of Tromsø’s must see tours; visit the Tromsø Ice Domes, and try out snowmobiling in the Arctic wilderness. You will also get a chance to visit our 4 reindeer
The Tromsø Ice Domes are built new every year and only last until April before they melt. This allows the hotel to always create new carvings and themes to ensure that every year, is a new experience. At the ice domes, you will be greeted by a knowledgeable guide whom will take you on a 1.5 hour guided tour through the ice bar, ice restaurant, ice cinema and ice hotel rooms. The carvings each tell a story so you will come away from this experience both marveled and educated. A highlight of the portion of the tour includes a non alcoholic ice shot, as well as a short video on the construction of the domes in the ice cinema.
The Ice Domes also conducts snowmobiling tours directly from the doorstep so either before or after your visit to the ice hotel, you will get a chance to drive a snowmobile in pairs through the frozen Arctic wilderness. The Ice Domes will provide you with all the clothing you need for the snowmobiling tour. Please note that you must bring your drivers license with you, and all drivers must be 18 years of age. Passengers must be a minimum of 14 years of age.
During the tour, you will also get a chance to visit our 4 reindeer calves located just outside the Tromsø IceDomes. Please note that we cannot allow guests to pet or touch them as they are wild animals. Photos and feeding are allowed.
