Activity description

Book your evening snowmobile excursion in Tromsø, riding along the captivating Arctic wilderness, below the night sky and the Northern Lights! Venture far into the wilderness of Tromsø, through the snowy terrains and lush forests with your own snowmobile. No previous experience needed! 

Experience the thrill of driving a snowmobile, feel the cold crisp Arctic air and marvel at the silent snowy wilderness of Tromsø at night! You will ride along the captivating snow-covered mountains, astonishing landscapes and scenic valleys. Ready to get a taste of the local culture and learn how to drive the scooter of the North? 

Your adventure begins with a pick-up from the city center in Tromsø where you will meet your guides and hop on a scenic 90-minute bus ride towards the wilderness center in Camp Tamok. Once you've reached the camp, you will be provided with warm winter clothing and follow a thorough safety instruction and a practical demonstration of driving the snowmobiles. Then, it is time to follow your guide and head out in the wild!

You will drive in pairs with one driver and one passenger per snowmobile and switch places during excursion. Prepare to ride along the snowy terrains, taking in the cold crisp Arctic air while feeling the thrill of riding the snowmobile! If you're lucky, the Auroras will make their appearance and dance right above you! 

After the trip, your guide will lead the way to a traditional reindeer herder's tent where you will enjoy a delicious Norwegian stew or soup by the campfire, complemented with bread, tea, and water. Savor the flavors and cherish the moments with your loved ones, while learning about the Nordic culture and the life in the Arctic. With a bit of luck, you might witness a magical show of the Northern Lights lighting up the night sky! 

Once you've warmed up, it is time to board the bus, and return back to Tromsø with some lifelong memories of this unique excursion. Unleash your inner adventurer and book your evening snowmobile excursion in Tromsø taking in the Arctic wilderness and the magical Northern Lights!
