A Sami Reindeer Adventure

Experience the thrill of Reindeer Sledding as you glide through the snow-covered landscapes for 25-30 minutes. At the camp, you'll also have the opportunity to feed the herd of around 300 reindeer, who will swarm around you and may even eat from your hands. You'll also learn how to use the lasso (but not on real reindeer).

Afterward, you'll be invited to a traditional Gamme to enjoy a mouthwatering Sami meal cooked over the fire, along with warm drinks. Vegetarian options are also available.

In the Lavvu, gather around the fire with your Sami guide and listen to fascinating stories about Sami culture and the life of a reindeer herder. You'll also be treated to a soulful performance of a Joik, a traditional Sami song.

Amazing cruise even though the weather was not great the tour operator did everything to help make the trip fun. Saw various birds and even managed to catch a fish. Food was also great and plentiful, even catered for food allergies.

Stunningly beautiful. As a person whose been to many remote places the sights here were truly stunning. Also the man who led the tour is absolutely hilarious.

It was a really really good experience, very well organized and father and son were a really good crew. We had done to the wale safari too which was also a good trip, Thomas is a really nice and friendly guy. We can only say we will do it again if we stay in tromsø.

Amazing trip. The guides were fun, friendly and helpful. They shared stories about them and interesting information about the area. The captain was great at getting close to the whales, we got there before everyone else each time.
