Camp Tamok is located in the Tamok valley, a 75 min drive from Tromsø. An overnight at Camp Tamok is an unforgettable experience in the Arctic inland of Norway. In the period November – March you will have the chance to experience the Northern Lights.
When booking our “Hotel Category 1” you can choose between spending the night in a private chalet or in a private Gamme tent. Please inform us at the time of booking of your choice.
The aurora chalet is the most private accommodation, with place for two guests. The cabins are rather small without electricity and water, but heated. One important detail, one of the roofsides of the chalets have a window placed in the direction of the Northern Lights. The bed is placed right under the window, which is the perfect angle for watching the lights. We recommend you to wear woolen underwear.
The gamme is a private sami tent, with place for two guests. Each tent is without water and electricity, but has an oven that keeps the gamme warm and cosy. It has a double bed, two chairs and a table. If you want to try out a proper arctic experience and still have some privacy, this is the perfect accommodation for you.
POSSIBLE UPGRADE – Char Cabin
The Char Cabin is a private cabin located approx. 100 m away from the camp. It is perfect for 2 – 4 persons, and has everything a proper cabin should, including a loft where you will be sleeping. The cabin does not have running water or electricity so you’ll have to feed the fireplace with wood and keep warm whilst cuddling up on the couch and listening to the crackling sound from the fire. This cabin is suitable for couples celebrating anniversaries or other big occasions, families and friends. Should you wish to upgrade to the Char cabin please contact us for further information and price.
Please note: Camp Tamok is a wilderness camp with simple facilities. Toilets and showers are located in a separate building near the lavvu tents. Breakfast will be served in the main lavvu. Enjoy, feed the fire and drink your coffee or tea or relax in the sauna at the camp. A set menu is served at the main lavvu in the evening; please inform us at least 4 weeks in advance if you have any special dietary requirements.
There are guides at the camp who will help you with any questions you might have during your stay.
We recommend that you bring:
Hotel rooms in Scandinavia are generally furnished with twin beds, which can be moved together to form a double bed or placed separately (some hotels have double beds though). Unless otherwise specified all rooms have private bathroom facilities, which are often equipped with a shower instead of a bath. Please note that single rooms are generally smaller than doubles. Purpose-built triple or family rooms are likewise unusual in Scandinavian hotels. Whilst it is possible for 3 persons to share a room, this will normally be formed by a double room with an extra bed. As a result space may be restricted.
Unless otherwise clearly specified a standard room/cabin is included in the tour price.
