We really enjoyed learning about the Sami culture and the raising of reindeer by them. Our guide was terrific, down to earth and very sincere. It was great to spend time with the reindeer and the lunch afterward was fun. We also enjoyed the drive to the camp as we got to see the scenery in that part of the country. The trip was just the right length of time.

This was a great tour. It was very well organised, easy and just the right amount of time. We first spoke with a Sami around a fire, it was fascinating hearing about his life as a blend of traditional and modern ways (and good to not be standing in the cold). We got to lead the reindeer to the sleds and say hello. The sledding itself was very short, I didn't need it to be any longer though. Afterwards we were given a delicious stew and hot beverages in a warm tent.

Sitting in the lavo and listening to the history of the camp and the Sami was an amazing experience. We wish we had more time to ask questions and hear more stories. We have so many more things we want to learn that we probably would have annoyed everyone by just asking so many questions. The discussion and experience was extremely informative and now we will be researching more about the Sami on my own.

Being so close to the reindeer was fun and the sleigh ride was beautiful. The guide was very informative about the Sami culture, it's saddening how it may slowly disappear in modern society, in spite of changing with the times (drones to watch the herd!) Tasty lunch too.
