Activity description

Embark on a day-long adventure in the Arctic, combining a snowmobile safari, followed by a guided visit to the magical Ice Domes in Tromsø, and get up close with the festive and majestic reindeers! 

Combine an all-in-one package, for a fulsome day in the winter wonderland of Northern Norway, situated north of the Arctic Circle. Set among the high mountains, and a snow-covered valley, the Ice Domes are home to some incredible ice sculptures and impressive snow carvings. Treat yourself to a unique guided tour in this historic hotel during your stay in Tromsø! 

Your adventure begins with a pick-up from the city center in Tromsø, where you will embark on a 90-minute scenic ride, admiring the mesmerising landscapes and white-washed mountains of the Arctic. Upon arrival, you will receive warm overalls, and follow a safety briefing and a practical demonstration for using the snowmobiles. Then, it is time to head out and set off for an unforgettable snowmobile safari in the Arctic wilderness!

You will ride through the breathtaking snow-covered mountains, along dramatic landscapes, and scenic valleys! Each snowmobile will be shared between two participants, one driver and one passenger, with the opportunity to switch places during the trip. The overall duration of the snowmobile safari depends on the weather and snow conditions of the day, and it could last from 1 hour to 2 hours. 

After the ride, you will relax by the roaring fire in a traditional reindeer herder's tent, and enjoy a delicious and locally produced warm meal. Once you've recharged, you will head to the Ice Domes, for a fascinating tour of the magical icy rooms. The hotel is entirely rebuilt each year out of ice, portraying some of the most typical Northern Norwegian and Arctic themes, including the Northern Lights, the Sami culture, and the wonderful Arctic animals.

Immerse yourself in the Arctic history, while taking in the fantastic coloured lighting in this unique setting. Learn some insights about the construction process of the domes, and the impact of the snow in the Arctic and enjoy  a non-alcoholic ice shot at the impressive ice bar! 

You will have some free time to explore the Ice Domes and meet the reindeers, right next to the Ice Hotel, before heading back to Tromsø. 

Book your Ice Domes Visit, and combine your day with a snowmobile safari, and meet the festive reindeers, important to the Arctic region and Tromsø!
