Northern Lights Visit - Excl. Transport

Journey into the darkness, away from any light pollution and get the chance to witness the mystical northern lights.

This activity does not include bus transportation. Please arrive at Camp Tamok, 15 minutes prior to the start of the activity.

Upon arrival at Camp Tamok, you will get outfitted with the essential gear including thermal suits, boots, and gloves, ensuring comfort and warmth for the evening ahead.

We will start the evening with a presentation about the Northern Lights (the Aurora Borealis) and give some tips on how to photograph them. Depending on the weather conditions, we will take you on a short walk to different locations around the camp from where the northern lights can be observed.
The camp itself is located in untouched wilderness surrounded by darkness, far removed from the bright city lights. The area lies in a drier climate zone with clear inland mountain weather generating many cloud-free night skies in winter.
If all factors line up and we get a display of the nothern lights, we will spend as much time as we can outside to make sure you’ll experience the magic to the fullest.
Ensuring you stay warm and comfortable, we will serve a hot meal around the open fire inside one of the lávvu (indigenous Sámi tent) at the end of the evening.
