Enhance your experience of Norwegian traditions on a half-day reindeer sledding and Sami culture experience from Tromsø. On arrival at the homestead, you’ll get acquainted with a herd of 200 reindeers during a feeding session. Then, embark on an exciting 10-minute reindeer sleigh ride through picturesque frozen landscapes. Warm up with coffee and classic Sami dishes inside a ‘lavuu’ (traditional Sami tent) and listen to stories and songs derived from ancient cultural traditions. Round-trip transfers from central Tromsø are included.
At a prearranged meeting point in Tromsa city center, you’ll board a coach destined for the reindeer camp — a traditional homestead located in Tromsa’s frozen wilderness. On arrival, greet your guide and enjoy a feeding session with a herd of 200 reindeer.
After getting acquainted with the gentle creatures, you’ll board a sleigh for an exciting ride: as reindeer pull your sleigh over the snow, admire the frozen landscapes and snow-dusted flora of Tromsa.
Next, make yourself comfortable in a lavuu; warm up with steaming coffee and listen to stories derived from ancient Sami culture. In the comfort of the tent, you’ll enjoy a fulfilling lunch of bidos (flavorsome Sami soup) and sweet cake as you witness the performance of a joik (Sami folk song).
When your tour concludes, return to central Tromsa in a climate-controlled coach.
