Full description

Treat yourself to a guided tour of the magical winter wonderland of Tromsø Ice Domes. Enjoy a scenic bus ride from the city center of Tromsø, discover the construction process of the domes, and marvel at intricate ice sculptures.

Begin your day with a comfortable drive to the Tromsø Ice Domes in the mountains above Tamok Valley. Each year at the start of the winter season, new Tromsø Ice Domes are constructed.

Upon arrival, join a guided tour through the domes, passing beautiful ice sculptures and snow carvings lit with magical special lighting effects. Learn about the typical northern Norwegian themes of the snow and ice sculptures, featuring the Northern Lights, Sami culture, and Arctic animals.

Learn about the construction process of the domes and the impact the snow has on all life in the Arctic. After the guided tour, enjoy some free time to explore on your own, visit the herd of reindeer near the Domes, and have a non-alcoholic ice shot at the ice bar.

Warm up around a fireplace and relax in a warm wooden lavvu (traditional Sami dwelling) while enjoying a traditional Norwegian soup or stew.

    The Ice Domes are definitely worth a visit. The works and ice sculptures are incredibly well designed and detailed. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to tell us a lot about Vikings and the Sami culture. In addition, I was very happy about the reindeer behind the house and about the vegetarian choice of food.

    A highly recommended excursion. The arrival by bus through the fantastic landscape, awesome. The Ice Dom, a unique, ephemeral work of art with mystical sculptures. You have to see the Ice Dom, a description cannot reflect the impressions. The cozy get-together after the guided tour and visit to the Ice Dom over a soup with reindeer meat was also fun and made new contacts.

    A little more time in the ICE domes would have been great to be able to take a closer look at all the sculptures. I think the reindeer need a bigger enclosure. There are also only 4 very small ones lying and sleeping there. The food in the wooden hut was very tasty and sufficient.
