Overview

Get acquainted with traditional Sami culture and reindeer on a half-day tour from Tromso. Alongside your guide, experience the joy of reindeer sledding through Tromso's picturesque, and snow-shrouded landscape. After feeding a herd of 200 reindeer, take a comfortable seat inside a ‘lavuu’ (Sami tent) to listen to stories about Sami culture around a campfire. Revitalize with delicious Sami dishes while listening to your guide perform a ‘joik’ (traditional Sami song).
  • Half-day reindeer sledding and Sami culture experience from Tromso
  • Ride on a reindeer-driven sleigh through the picturesque landscapes of Tromsa
  • Enjoy a Sami meal and listen to Sami stories and songs around a campfire in a traditional tent
  • Round-trip transfers from central Tromso included
Meet for your tour at a central meeting point in Tromso. Then head to a reindeer camp—a traditional homestead located in Tromso’s frozen wilderness. On arrival, greet your guide and make yourself comfortable in a sleigh pulled by wild reindeer.

Marvel at the beauty of the snow-dusted landscape as you glide through the forest and feel the refreshing breeze in your hair. After the ride, disembark your sleigh and feed a herd of 300 wild reindeer.

After all of the action, refresh with a coffee inside a warm lavuu while listening to captivating stories from Sami culture. Pleasure your palate with bidos (a hearty Sami soup) and sweet cake, and delight in the performance of a joik by your Sami guide.

Your tour concludes with transfers back to your original departure point.

Cute reindeers and cool experience!

I had a really great experience. The reindeers are sooo cute! The Sami ladies and gents wear traditional Sami clothing which looks stunning and they tell you a bit about it and about their culture. They also explain why they herd the reindeer. The sled ride was chill. The musher is in front of the sled and walks, so it’s not exactly adrenaline filled but it’s still worth doing it anyway. The reindeer soup/stew was quite good.

Thank you so much for your review. We are very glad that you gave five stars to our experiences. As for the sledding, we need to have a herder guiding the reindeers, as the animals might get scared or nervous, and it will be very dangerous for our guests. The speed you were sledding with, is the same pace that the Sami travelled with the reindeer when they moved from their winter to summer pastures. It is great that you are interested in Sami culture and Nordic life in general, we were happy to introduce it to you. Hope to see you again!
