Sami Wilderness Camp Arctic Norway

You can’t visit Arctic Norway without understanding the Sami way of life. They are, after all, a remarkably hardy people who have lived here in the north as nomadic herders for centuries.

What better way to taste this lifestyle than by driving your own husky team from the colourful streets of Tromsø into the heart of Lyngen, a wild and untamed terrain where the fjords meet the mountains? There, at Camp Tamok, you'll learn of Sami folklore and of reindeer husbandry and spend the night in a traditional lavvu (Sami tent).

1 night Tromso • 1 night Camp Tamok • 1 night Tromso


Day 1: Tromsø

Fly to Tromsø and check in to the Rica Ishavshotel in the centre of town. Tromsø may only be home to 60,000 people but it boasts more than its fair share of attractions. If you do nothing else, wander past the many coloured buildings of the main street, Storgata, and down to the harbour. It was from here that Amundsen set out on his polar expedition, giving Tromsø the name ‘Gateway to the Arctic’.

Day 2: Camp Tamok

Ask your travel specialist about the numerous excursions on offer through the day, just be back before evening, when you’ll be collected by your guide, driven out from Tromsø, introduced to your dogsled team and given all the necessary instructions. Then it’s off across the snowscape to the wilderness camp, swapping mushing duties with your partner half way through the journey and perhaps stopping to gaze at the Northern Lights. With the total absence of artificial light, you couldn’t hope to be better placed to see them. On arrival at the camp, you can relax in the sauna before eating round the campfire, learning more about Sami folklore and retiring for your night in a lavvu. (A cabin is available for tentophobics but be aware that neither option has electricity or running water.)

Days 3–4 Tromsø

Snowmobiles are the best way of discovering this vast and startling wilderness in a short space of time. Today, you’ll enjoy an exhilarating snowmobile safari before returning to Tromsø in the late afternoon. Fly home the next day.
