Immerse yourself in beautiful scenery and rich cultural traditions of the Arctic during this 4.5-hour dinner and Northern Lights viewing experience with the Sami Reindeer Herders. It’s a great opportunity to get a better sense for the indigenous cultures of Scandinavia and see a spectacular display courtesy of Mother Nature.
Leave Tromso in the evening, traveling for 30 minutes to the Sami’s reindeer camp outside of town. Once you arrive, you’ll have time explore the site with your hosts, including an opportunity to feed the reindeer. Once you’ve worked up an appetite from completing your “chores,” head to the camp’s central “lavuu” (traditional Sami tent) to join the tribe for a delicious three-course dinner. As you eat, enjoy lively conversation with your hosts, including an introduction to the Sami belief system and their spiritual connection to the Northern Lights.
With your belly and mind now full from the evening’s entertainment and food, head outside to have a look at the colorful waves of light that frequently dance across the nighttime sky. With any luck, weather conditions will be right to enjoy this mystical nocturnal display. You’ll travel back to central Tromso before midnight to finish your trip.
Please note: this trip is seasonal and runs daily from 01.12 2017 until 31.03 2018.
