Client Testimonial: 
My husband and I recently went to Norway on an Arctic Nights to Remember tour (departing Gatwick 30th Jan 2015). I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the holiday!  It felt like we crammed so much into a short visit, but  it never felt hurried. The overnight stay and activities at Camp Tamok were fabulous and the Hotel With was perfect for our stay in Tromso.  The staff at both the hotel and Camp Tamok were extremely hard working, helpful and friendly.  All our flights and transfers once in Tromso were seamless. Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend and a winter experience that we'll remember for ever!

Camp Tamok - Tromso
Camp Tamok
Camp Tamok, in the Northern Lights heartland, is located outside of Tromsø amongst lofty mountains, fjords and the Lapland tundra that dominates the region. As well as being well away from any light pollution, the area is known for its dry climate and many days of clear sky, maximising your chances of sighting the Northern Lights. Camp Tamok is a wilderness experience like no other and is an ideal setting for the snowmobile, husky and ice-fishing activities on offer.
 
You have three types of accommodation options to choose from:
 
THE WILDERNESS CABIN
This comprises of four bedrooms and two loft rooms accommodating up to 12 guests. The cabin is heated by a wood stove and lit by oil lamps thus offering a warm and a cosy place for a restful night’s sleep.
SAMI TENT
A traditional lavvu where you will sleep in winter sleeping bags on top of several  skins. Open wood fires endeavour to keep out the chill but temperatures can drop to zero. The lavvu accommodates up to 12 people and you each have a separate berth.
AURORA CABIN
This is the most private and romantic accommodation. Choose one of 3 small aurora cabins. Heated but without water or electricity, these are ideal for couples as you can lie in bed gazing out of the rooftop window through which you can view the aurora when visible.
AURORA CHALET
This is the most private and romantic accommodation on offer. Choose one of three small aurora cabins. Heated but without water or electricity, these are ideal for couples, as you can lie in bed gazing out of the rooftop window through which you can view the aurora when visible.
GAMME TENT
A gamme is a private Sami tent, ideal for romantic couples, who wish to try out a proper Arctic experience and still have some privacy. The tents do not have water or electricity, but there is an oven to keep you warm and cosy, as well as a double bed, table and two chairs.
CHAR CABIN
Located about 100m from the main camp, this cabin is ideal for celebrating a big occasion or getting together with family or friends. Accommodating 2-4 people, you will sleep in the loft, and as the cabin does not have running water or electricity, you'll keep warm by feeding the fireplace with wood, as you cuddle up on the couch.
Tromsø Northern Lights Search
This trip offers the best chance you can get to spot the Aurora. Your local guide picks you up from the centre of Tromsø and, depending on the level of cloud cover, heads north to a spot where the Atlantic is on one side of you and the Lyngen Alps on the other, or East as far as the Finnish border. The emphasis is firmly on hunting Aurora and where they are most likely to occur, so the trip can last for anything up to 8 hours. During the evening you move location two or three times to provide different backdrop settings and to avoid any light pollution. All levels of photographers are welcome and your guide is on hand to help you produce some memorable shots.
