ABOUT TROMSO ICE DOMES

Welcome to Tromso Ice Domes, a unique ice structure built new every autumn in Tamok Valley. Several bedrooms will be added to enable you to extend your stay with us.

On the 95km drive to Tamok Valley, you will discover our local fjords, snow-covered mountains and wooded valleys. Our guides await you at the Ice Domes and will lead you in small groups through the domes and ice sculptures exhibition. If you stay with us overnight, you will have a unique winter experience. Your personal guide will take you on a snowshoe tour and cook your dinner on an open fire, while searching for the northern lights.

Reindeer skins and a polar expedition sleeping bag will be waiting for you to keep warm under your ice roof! Whether you join us for half a day or stay the night, it will be an unforgettable experience.

Tamok means ‘trout’ in the Finnish and Sami languages- a very appropriate name given the abundance of this fish in the river running through the valley. The surrounding mountains are over 1200m of altitude and contribute to keeping the valley cold during the two-month long Polar Night. In winter, it is common to have about 7 degrees celsius less in Tamok than in Tromso, making it the ideal place for keeping the Ice Hotel in good shape throughout the winter.
