Tromsø Ice Domes Guided Tour and Reindeer Visit

Treat yourself to a guided tour at the magical winter wonderland of Tromsø Ice Domes, a scenic 90-minute bus drive away from the city center of Tromsø.  

Set among high mountains in the beautiful Tamok Valley, the Ice Domes are built every year when the winter season starts.  

Join the guided tour through the domes and get to marvel at the incredible ice sculptures and snow carvings. Each year, the snow - and ice sculptures portray typical Northern Norwegian themes such as Northern Lights, Sami culture and Arctic animals. They are beautifully displayed inside the domes with special light effects creating magical scenes.  

You will learn about the construction process of the domes, the impact the snow has on all life in the Arctic and have a non-alcoholic ice shot at the ice bar.  
As part of this guided tour, there will be some free time to walk around by yourself and visit the reindeer that are herding next to the Ice Domes. You will also have some time to warm up around a fireplace and relax in our warm wooden lavvu. We will serve a traditional Norwegian soup or stew and hot drinks before heading back to Tromsø by bus.

Welcome to a once-in-a-lifetime experience of snow and ice magic in our winter wonderland!
