Camp Tamok is located in an area with optimal conditions for experiencing the Northern Lights. In wintertime the camp is the starting and ending point for excursions by dog sled, snowmobile and reindeer sled. The trails start from the camp and lead into wilderness areas with no signs of human activity. The camp’s large lavvu and main cabin are where the hot meals are served after sledding, ski school, snowshoeing and other winter excursions.
Although Camp Tamok is located only a 75 minute drive from downtown Tromsø, it is in a different and drier climate zone, with clear inland mountain weather. The dry climate generates many cloud-free night skies in winter, as well as during summer. This makes Camp Tamok an ideal area with optimal conditions for experiencing the Northern Lights.
