Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Immerse yourself in beautiful scenery and rich cultural traditions in the Arctic during this dinner and Northern Lights viewing experience with 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 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
What to bring: Warm clothes (at least two layers), gloves and hat and good winter boots.

Love the reindeer

Feeding the reindeer was a highlight of my trip. The reindeer stew (yes, I played with my food before eating it) was delicious. Throughly enjoyed the talk given by the Sami leader. Never knew reindeer antlers could be soft and fuzzy. This is a great value for your money. P

John and Thor were wonderful guides and hosts! They were personable and gave us so much interesting information on the reindeer. On our trip we were lucky enough to view the northern lights. Inside our camp we had an outstanding dinner with the main course being reindeer stew. We learned a lot about the Sami culture,the clothes they wore, how they survived and how they are living now. We had a warm fire and great fellowship. My husband looked a little cold so they dressed him up in authentic outerwear. He said he was toasty. I recommend this trip to anyone and everyone!

Great organisation and a really nice experience! We really enjoyed feeding the reindeers and our Sami host was really nice as well as were the other guides. He explained about his culture and then we had a 3 course diner. It was snowing a lot, but as soon as it stopped snowing we were treated with the amazing northern lights. Truly a fantastic experience and highly recommened.

This was a wonderful evening, simple, homely, heartfelt friendliness sitting round the fire in the picture above, laughing and joking with our Sami host and learning about his special way of life. We were a small group so it was easy to chat together, comparing photos and trying on the Sami traditional hats, after a steaming bowl of reindeer stew, and salmon wraps. Feeding the reindeer was an experience never to forget, out In the snow by lamplight, we had buckets of food ready as they emerged from the darkness, antlers everywhere, pushing their noses hard into the buckets. Makes for some interesting photos if you are trying to control the camera in the other hand. I loved this evening and would certainly recommend it.

Visite un peu décevante
Caro C
, Dec 2019
Nous avons choisit cette sortie pour voir au plus près cette communauté autochtone et comprendre leur vie. Nous sommes arrivé en bus de 60 personnes. (je n'ai pas trouvé de plus petit tour pour cette visite). Nous avions décidé de ne pas prendre la balade en traîneau et nous ne regrettons pas. La balade consiste à un tour du champs dans lequel les Rennes sont gardés (10 minutes max) . Nous avons pu nourrir les Rennes avec des sceaux de granulés et donc les approcher de près. C'est un peu la cohue et il vaut mieux s'avancer plus loin des le parc pour être un peu plus au calme mais du coup on est dans le noir(ce qui n'est pas très grave en soit car nous avions une frontale. Les Samis que nous avons rencontrés étaient bienveillants et attentifs et prêt à répondre à nos questions. Puis nous avons pris notre repas sous une hutte. Le repas avec des spécialités du pays et lui aussi survendu. Une petite salade (sans assaisonnement pour nous il fallait faire vite je pense) avec un petit rouleau de crêpe au saumon, une petite soupe au Rennes (nous en avons mangé d'autres et elle est loin d'être la meilleure) et un bout de gâteau au chocolat que nous avons du manger en 1 minutes car il fallait aller vite sous l'autre hutte pour écouter et voir les traditions Samis. Nous voilà donc autour du feu et un jeune homme de la communauté nous explique l'histoire et les traditions vestimentaires des Samis. On le sens pressé par la compagnie organisatrice. Puis vite vote remontons dans le bus. Nous devions avoir aussi des chants traditionnels mais la guide s'excuse en nous disant que ils n'avaient pas eu le temps de le faire car nous devions repartir ?!?. Bref un peu déçu de ce tour. Peut être le faire en journée juste pour voir les rennes en plein jours !?
