The beauty of the roads from tromsø to Camp Tamok didn't miss single second to amaze us. I was little bit sad after watching dog sledding and snowmobile group as i couldn't book before all were taken. But the guide for our event Emmy was just like a blinking star.Her positive energetic, smiley, friendly, supportive attitude made me forget all and full my soul with happiness. She took us to a nice snowshoeing. Then we made fire and prepare food in snow. She even brought some Marshmello as desert. On the way we met reindeers. Afterward Icedomes visit with short film, ice shot and history of exploring poles were cool. Completely happy with the trip and definitely can recommend. At the end special thanks to Emmy to make us feeling like we were walking with a charming friend not a commanding guide.

Guide was competent and drove us to a good and windless place. However, in such a large group it is rather anonymous and you have to entertain yourself. But if you asked the guide something, there were competent answers. Also good but maybe not ecological was that you could warm up in the bus/car at any time

We have taken a mini bus from Tromso and drove for a while as the weather wasn’t good nearby. On the road the guide told us a few things about Tromso and the auroras. Once arrived we’ve been lucky to immediatly found some auroras (even though those ones were “little” ones -> not green from direct eyes). We have got a cup of tea/hot chocolate during the trip and some cookies. The guide made some nice pictures of the auroras and even some portraits that we should receive in a couple of days. This is very appreciable ! Nb : no warm clothes provided, so bring what to keep you warm as we stood for a while on the different spots. And no toilets in the mini bus ! To conclude, I was a bit disappointed as I haven’t seen the kind of auroras I was expecting (I have seen nicer auroras dancing in the sky on another day from the coline for example), but the fact is that it only depends on the weather. It is a bit of luck and a lot of the nature law. Thank you to the guide !
