Combine a dog sledding adventure followed by a guided visit to the magical Tromsø Ice Domes and a chance to visit the reindeer outside of the ice hotel. Set among high mountains in the beautiful Tamok Valley, Tromsø Ice Domes is built every year as the Polar Night approaches.
Upon arrival at Tromsø Ice Domes, we will provide warm winter clothing and give you a demonstration on how to steer the dog sled. You don't need any previous skills, all you need is a normal physical condition. Dog sledding with our Alaskan huskies is an active experience. The sled team consist of two and two people on one sled sharing a team of huskies. Teamwork is essential in dog sledding and together with the team you have to help and push on parts of the tour.
After the dog sledding, you will visit the Ice Domes where the ice bar, ice cinema, ice suites and ice restaurant have themes ranging from local Sami culture to the Northern Lights conveyed through beautiful coloured lighting and wonderful ice sculptures. At the Ice Domes you will join a guided tour and learn about the construction process of the ice hotel and the impact the snow has for the survival of our Arctic animals. There will be time to walk around freely and ask questions to the experienced guide. A non-alcoholic ice shot at the stunning ice bar is complimentary. You will be able to purchase other drinks, which will be served in the ice restaurant or ice bar.
During this combination tour, we also give you a chance to visit our small herd of reindeer located at the Ice Domes for reindeer feeding. This is included free of charge in your tour.
