Reindeer sledding and Sami culture

This tour is provided by Tromsø Lapland

We would like to invite you to visit our Sámi camp and join us for a genuine and family-friendly reindeer sledding safari. After getting picked up at the departure location you will head on to the scenic landscapes at the edge of Tromsø, almost 50 km from the city center. This mountainous area close to the Lyngen Alps is home to magnificent coastal sceneries and idyllic villages.

Enjoy the peace and quiet from the nature around as you relax by floating across the snowy landscape. You will also get up-close and personal with our beautiful animals as you help us feed the calves that are ready to be domesticated. Prepare to be charmed by the fascinating reindeer and maybe you will learn to cherish and love our gentle but curious creatures just like we do - Our true hero in the Arctic!

Our expert guides will inform you of the ancient lifestyles of reindeer herders and maybe also reveal some secrets of surviving life in the arctic while you are served hot beverages and a traditional meal cooked over the fire. Allow yourself to become one with nature and replenish your mind and soul on your daytime outdoor excursion with us.

The company is established and run by authentic Sami people with long reindeer herding traditions and have the longest experience of running reindeer sledding and Sami culture tours in Tromsø, being established in 2009.

  • If conditions change, we keep the right to amend the duration of the reindeer sledding.
  • All animals used for these services are trained for the activity, however, the behaviour of animals can be unpredictable and therefore it is essential that all participants follow all given instructions for their safety, and the safety of others.
  • The sledding takes place as a "raid" where each reindeer and sled are bound together in a long row with the lead reindeer in the front.
  • Sleds are shared, two participantson one sled.
