Looking for an authentic Norwegian experience? Want to try something completely different? Join along an adventurous reindeer sledding trip followed by a taste of local culture, in Tromsø!

The Sami people, the original inhabitants of Scandinavia, have been living side by side with reindeer for centuries. This is your chance to have a taste of this amazing culture. From the moment you arrive at the reindeer camp, you'll be warmly welcomed by the reindeer herders, who will teach you about these amazing animals and their role in Sami culture. At the camp, you'll spot a herd of over 300 reindeer and another 1000 or so in the mountains running free!

In winter, you're guaranteed to have one of the most amazing experiences of your life! You'll be really close to the reindeers and you'll also get to stay warm in a lavvu, a traditional Sami tent as you listen to the traditional joik, Sami singing! Choose between a short or a long trip and prepare for an authentic adventure in the Norwegian wilderness! In both cases, you'll be picked up from Tromso and be driven to the reindeer camp, 25 min. from the city.

The first thing you'll do after arriving at the camp and being welcomed is feed the reindeer. Over 300 reindeer will quickly surround you, some might even get so comfortable with your presence that they'll eat right from your hand! Then, in a different area, you'll be taught how to use the lasso and you'll practice this new skill on a target resembling a reindeer.

Then the main event will be next! You'll be able to ride a sled with a capacity of 2 people being pulled by a reindeer! The short option will include a 10-15 min. ride, whereas the long option will include around 30 min. ride. After this amazing experience, you'll be invited to a gamme or a lavvu where you'll have something to eat and get warm as you enjoy some traditional joik singing!

By the end of your excursion, you'll feel like a Sami! A 25 min. ride back to Tromsø will allow soaking in an incredible day in the wild!

The reindeer farm and sledding activity were amazing. We had ample time to feed the reindeer before the ride. There were also warm drinks and food provided after the sledding.

I thought this was a very unique way to see the Arctic and would do it again. I especially enjoyed feeding the reindeer and soaking in the area.

We really enjoyed this tour. It is very nice to spend time feeding the massive amount of reindeers. And very nice of them to keep track and make sure to make it to the sledding as well, cause it was easy to lose track of time with the feeding.

Feeding the reindeer was a lot of fun and gave us a chance to see the animals (and their personalities) up close. The sledding itself was a bit anticlimactic but still a different experience. Five stars to our young Sami guide who gave us a great intro to Sami culture after lunch
