Description - What to expect

Your Tromso Ice Domes experience starts with a pick-up from downtown Tromsø and a comfortable drive to your destination. A guide will be at your disposal from the moment you arrive at Tromso Ice Domes until you depart the following morning. Learn about the construction process of the ice hotel and the impact the snow has on the survival of arctic animals, 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. You will hike up to nature camp where your guide will make a campfire and be served a 3-course dinner in a warm facility.

When arriving back at the camp, it is time for your magical night in the ice hotel! In the morning, you will be served a traditional Norwegian breakfast and you will have some time to prepare for your next adventure. Choose between: dogsledding, snowmobiling or reindeer sledding.

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 program at Tromsø Ice Domes has come to an end and it will be time to board the bus back to Tromsø city center.

About the lodge

Tromso Ice Domes is a unique ice structure built new every autumn in Tamok Valley. Reindeer skins and a polar expedition sleeping bag will be waiting for you to keep warm under your ice roof! Whether you join us for half a day or stay the night, it will be an unforgettable experience.

Tamok means ‘trout’ in the Finnish and Sami languages- a very appropriate name given the abundance of this fish in the river running through the valley. The surrounding mountains are over 1200m in altitude and contribute to keeping the valley cold during the two-month-long Polar Night. In winter, it is common to have about 7 degrees celsius less in Tamok than in Tromso, making it the ideal place for keeping the Ice Hotel in good shape throughout the winter.
