This is an independent, self-guided tour. All accommodations, rental car and train or cruise travel (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor, but travellers are ultimately responsible for getting to hotels and to any train or cruise departure points by the specified times.
Transportation is provided to/from Tromsø for all scheduled day tours/activities, and pickup locations will be specified in your detailed itinerary.
A valid driver’s license is required for the snowmobile tour. Participants under 18 years old are not allowed to drive the snowmobiles.
Protective outerwear and safety gear (e.g., helmet, overalls, etc.) is provided locally for outdoor activities like dog-sledding and snowmobiling tours. Nonetheless, it is a good idea to bring a warm winter parka and trousers, plenty of thermal layers, a pair of insulated boots and insulated gloves/mittens, hat and scarf.
In northern Norway, the northern lights activity is strongest between mid October to mid April. Displays can only be seen at night if skies are clear. Please note that sightings cannot be guaranteed.
Some of the activities are dependent on weather conditions. In the unlikely event that an activity is cancelled due to weather, an alternative will be offered.
Age limit for this tour: 7 years
The Camp is located in Tamok Valley, around 75 minutes from Tromsø city. The camp has three different accommodation types on the premises and shared facilities (toilets & showers) and a sauna (at an additional fee, needs booking in advance). All accommodation options are within 50 metres of the toilet and shower facilities. Here are the descriptions on the different accommodation categories:
Sami Lavvu Tent:
The lavvu is a heated Sami herdsmen’s tent, with 6 sleeping alcoves that each sleeps 2 persons. You will sleep in a warm winter sleeping bag on reindeer hides.
The Aurora Chalets are small heated wooden huts, that each sleeps two guests. They have a glass window in the roof to enhance your chances of seeing the Northern Lights.
The cabin has 6 small rooms, each for 2 guests and a common living room area. So here you have a chance of having a very social evening, in the shared living room area!
