Description - What to expect

Your arctic driving tour starts with a pick-up outside Magic Ice Bar, and then a 75 minutes drive through the spectacular arctic landscape until you reach Camp Tamok which is the start and endpoint of your adventure

You will drive on-road and off-road with the latter being somewhat challenging. Before setting off, you will receive thorough instructions on how to operate the vehicle. You will drive with one or two passengers in addition to the guide and switch places during the trip, so everyone gets the opportunity to drive.

You will drive about 20 km on the road before heading off-road and get surprised at how the vehicle navigates through the deep snow. For this, you will decrease the tire pressure which will widen the tire surface and will increase the vehicle's ability to float on the snow for a better experience. Your arctic driving activity involves both uphill and downhill driving in challenging terrain.

After an exciting driving session, we will return to Camp Tamok and be served a hot meal in a heated lavvu (Sami herdsmen's tent) before your departure to Tromso.
