This was a really fun experience and we were able to learn a lot about the local Sami Culture and the reindeer. The guides were knowledgeable and the area was beautiful! I would recommend this for families, couples, and solo explores who are wanting a hands-on fun and to learn more about Sami from Norway.

It rained on the day so we didn't get to go sledding which was sad, but the rest of the experience with meeting and feeding the reindeers, the herders, Sami people, listening to stories and having lunch together in their little hut made everything so magical. Thank you for the experience!

Great tour and very eventful within the 4 hour duration. The Sami people are so welcoming and given a well in depth story about their lives as a herder. The tour is exactly how it described, quite a lot go on but you still get plenty of time to take photos aroud the place.

This tour was amazing! The reindeer came up to us as soon as they saw the food so there were plenty of opportunities to take photos. The sled ride (or sledge as they call it) was also very peaceful and a great way to see the scenery. Food was good as well. The reindeer we helped feed have been herded by the same family for a few generations now, so they knew the land well. We got to hear about traditional Sami culture and their nomadic lifestyle. It was interesting to hear how they balance their traditions with the more modern Norwegian ones. We were also happy to hear that tours like these help show the need for environmental policies and protections. Overall wonderful, unique experience!!

So far one of the best tours I have done! The guys are really enthusiastic about their work and take much time to share details and answer questions. We would always go for it again!

We really enjoyed our visit here. The reindeer were very friendly and so cute! Great picture opportunities. Our kids liked trying the lasso, tasting reindeer stew and hearing about the Sami culture as well. The sledding is short but a fun experience nonetheless. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Our kids said it was one of they favorite activities we've done while traveling in Europe. Dress warm!
