Tromsø Ice Domes - Overnight Stay and Activity Package
Spend the night at the Tromsø Ice Domes and get to tick-off several activities on your bucket list at once: Go for a snowshoe hike in the evening, admire the beautiful ice-art inside the domes, get to spend the night in one of the ice-suites inside the ice-hotel and go for a morning activity of your choice the next day!
Depart from the city center of Tromsø on a 90-minute scenic drive by bus to Camp Tamok & Tromsø Ice Domes, located next to each other in the beautiful Tamok Valley.
Upon arrival, this overnight adventure starts with a guided tour through the Ice Domes: marvel at the incredible ice sculptures and snow carvings, learn about the construction process of the domes, the impact the snow has for all life in the Arctic and have a non-alcoholic ice shot at the ice bar.
There will be some time to walk around freely and you will be shown to your ice-suite, where you will spend the night.
After this first introduction to the Ice Domes, we will provide you with warm winter clothing, boots and snowshoe gear and you will embark on a guided snowshoe hike. Being outside on a dark winter evening, away from all light pollution creates a wonderful opportunity to witness the Northern Lights while going on this adventure. We will hike up to our nature camp where your guide will make a campfire. After the snowshoe hike you will be served a three course dinner in a warm facility.
When arriving back to the camp, it is time for your magical night at in the ice-hotel!
In the morning, we will serve you a traditional Norwegian breakfast and you will have some time to prepare for your next adventure. Choose between:
- Dogsledding Morning
- Snowmobiling Daytime
- Reindeersledding Daytime
After the activity, you will be served a hot meal around an open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. After a relaxing lunch and warming up inside, the overnight stay programme at Tromsø Ice Domes has come to an end and it will be time to board the bus back to Tromsø city center.
