Full description

Have you ever dreamed of experiencing the mystical Northern Lights? The right settings to experience the Aurora Borealis are a dark location, starry sky, previous solar storms, and sitting by a fire outside watching the northern sky while keeping yourself warm. Join in at the wilderness center Camp Tamok which offers a great setting for Northern Lights observation. After a 90-minute bus drive from Tromsø city center, arrive in an untouched wilderness surrounded by darkness.

The camp is far removed from the bright city lights and situated in a different climate zone that offers more stable weather and the likeliness of a clear sky. Upon arrival, get dressed in warm winter clothing and listen to a presentation about the Aurora Borealis and how to photograph it.

Depending on the weather conditions, head to different locations around the camp (by foot) from where the northern lights can be observed. When it is time to warm up, enjoy a hot meal inside around the open fire in a reindeer herder's tent. After relaxing and warming up, it is time to board the bus again to be driven back to the city center of Tromsø.

    Our guide Julius was excellent, he looked after us and made our tour interesting, despite no showing of the Northern Lights, which was disappointing. We did other activities to fill the time which were great and his knowledge and communication was exceptional. Really enjoyed it and it was memorable.
