Could not fault the experience, seeing the Aurora (bucket list) along with Dog sledding through the Artic (another bucket list) was fantastic, as was our guide and accommodation!
Highly recommend.
Has the right balance between amenities without feeling too touristic.

My husband and I went dog sledding at night at Camp Tamok.
After being picked up from central Tromso (handily right by our hotel), we had a comfortable coach journey out to the camp.

Once we arrived we had plenty of time to get kitted up in the snow suits (hint: go with their recommendation and visit the bathroom first - much easier before suited up!). As per previous reviews, some of the kit was a bit tired - for example, one of my boots didnt have laces - I'm sure I could have swapped, but it really didn't matter and did not affect my experience.

After kitting up we were split into smaller groups and assigned a guide. Our guide was great but I'm so sorry I can't remember his name. He spoke German and English and therefore could cater for everyone as the others in our group were German.
We were given good instructions but it's one of those things that is hard to explain until you are actually doing it. The dogs are strong and they know what they are doing so trust them - they will give you some dirty looks if you are not helping them up the hills, ut otherwise your only task will be slowing them down!!

It was an exhilarating experience especially down some of the narrower bumpy tracks. I thoroughly enjoyed it both as passenger and driver as we swapped over halfway.

Once we were back at camp we got to meet some husky puppies and really enjoyed the Sami lavvu experience. The food was delicious and hearty with lots of strong coffee. It was also great to sit and chat with the other guests.
Overall a fantastic experience, thank you.

We chose the reindeer trip. They gave us all equipment needed for the activities. Firstly, we went on the reindeer sled. Two people per reindeer and it lasted about an hour. The views were amazing and it was a great and recommended experience. Secondly, they talked to us about the reindeers, it was very amusing and the people were very clear and interesting. Really recommend it. The workers were very friendly and at the end of the day they gave us some Sami food which was delicious.

Snow mobiling was an absolute joy. You must be fit to do the dog sledding as you are running with the dogs & helping push them along. Dinner was a reindeer stew- SO GOOD! We would come back and stay in the cabins. Such a great experience!
