You will be surprised how the Arctic Truck navigates through the snow. Before setting off, you will receive thorough instructions of how to operate the vehicle. You will drive with one or two passengers in addition to the guide. You will be able to switch places during the trip, so everyone gets the opportunity to drive.
You will drive about 20 km on the road before heading off-road. As your guide will explain, you must deflate the tyre pressure before driving into the deep snow. This widens the tyre surface and increases the vehicle’s ability to float on the snow. Your Arctic Truck experience will involve both uphill and downhill driving in challenging terrain.
After an exciting driving session, we will return to Camp Tamok and you will be served a hot meal in our heated lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent). Note: If you can drive a normal car, you can drive an Arctic Truck. All you need is a regular driving licence and a sense of adventure.
Pick-up by bus or minibus in downtown Tromso, outside the Scandic Ishavshotel by the quayside. The transfer time is 75 min each way to Camp Tamok, the start and end point for your excursion.
