Join an authentic reindeer sledding excursion in Tromsø and immerse yourself with the Sami and their reindeers, while admiring the magical Northern Lights!

If you're looking for an authentic activity in Tromsø, look no further. Come spend the day with the indigenous Sami people and discover the ancient lifestyle of Northern Norway, including the oldest form of transport in the North, reindeer sledding. This evening tour offers excellent opportunities to experience the majestic Northern Lights lighting up the Arctic night sky!

You will meet your guides directly in Tromsø and embark on a 90-minute scenic-ride to the wilderness center in Camp Tamok. Take in the majestic sceneries as you make your way to the camp! Upon arrival, you will receive warm overalls, and all the necessary gear for reindeer sledding. Then, following a thorough safety briefing, you will head out to the Sami Camp to meet your new furry friends!

As Lapland is home to the indigenous Sami people, this excursion will teach you plenty about the ancient Sami culture. A Sami guide will accompany you along your reindeer sledding tour, and you will be able to exchange stories while you revel in the natural wonders of Finnmark’s landscapes! With a little bit of luck, the Auroras will make their appearance and dance right above you.

During your outing, you will even get an introduction to lasso throwing, which is a central skill for the Sami survival in the Arctic North. Once you're back at the camp, you will have some time to get up close with the friendly reindeers and feed them. They are always happy to receive their favorite treats!

Then, you will sit around the open fire in a Sami tent and enjoy a delicious homemade Norwegian soup or stew, complemented with bread, coffee, tea and water. Taste the local flavors while listening to some fascinating stories about the Sami culture and their connection with the reindeers! Take in the overall beauty of the camp and say your final goodbyes to these incredible creatures before you head back to Tromsø.

Book your reindeer sledding excursion in Tromsø and get up close with the reindeers, learn about the Sami culture, and take a glimpse of the colorful Northern Lights lighting up the Arctic night sky!
