Full description

Join a comfortable Northern Lights evening in the wilderness center Camp Tamok, a 75-minute scenic drive from downtown Tromsø in Northern Norway. Learn how to take the best photos before getting the rare chance to see the Aurora Borealis up close.

As an alternative to chasing the Northern Lights by bus until the early hours of the morning, this experience at Camp Tamok offers a comfortable, personal, and authentic experience within a fixed timeframe.

Camp Tamok is surrounded by untouched wilderness, providing exclusive access to the darkness far removed from the bright city lights. Situated in a different climate zone, the location offers more stable weather and likeliness of a clear sky.

An evening at Camp Tamok provides the freedom to enjoy the evening outdoors, sky gaze, or keeping warm around an open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. Enjoy cozy traditional buildings with modern facilities.

Upon arrival, receive warm winter clothing and a thorough presentation about the Aurora Borealis and how to photograph this natural phenomenon. A hot meal will also be served in a traditional North Norwegian setting around an open fire.

If the sky is starry at Camp Tamok, take a short hike near the wilderness center to stay warm and experience different settings to photograph the Northern Lights.

If the sky is cloudy or there is no sign of the Northern Lights, there will be other ways to enjoy the rest of your stay at Camp Tamok.

Whether you see this amazing spectacle or not, a trip to Camp Tamok is an adventure in itself. The dark and silent surroundings provide a genuine Arctic atmosphere.

    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.
