Overview

Stay overnight at a comfortable camp on the island of Kvaløya during this 15-hour tour from Tromsø. You'll stay in a traditional Sami lavvu (tent), and have excellent viewing conditions if the Northern Lights come out. You'll also take a ride on a reindeer sled, try a traditional dish, and learn about indigenous culture from your Sami guide.
  • Overnight tour with reindeer sledding and Sami culture, from Tromsø
  • Ride on a reindeer sled and feed the reindeer
  • Taste a traditional stew and learn about Sami culture
  • Get a great view of the Northern Lights if they're out
  • Sleep in a cozy lavvu (traditional tent) at a remote location
Make your own way to the Radisson Blu Hotel in Tromsø to meet your guide and drive to the quiet location on the island of Kvaløya where you'll stay overnight.
Begin with a 30-minute ride on a sled pulled by reindeer, and feed the reindeer a treat at the end. Then get warm inside the lavvu as you eat a traditional stew that is typically made for weddings and other special occasions. Your meal is accompanied by a hot drink such as coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, and your Sami guide shares stories about Sami culture, history, and reindeer herding.
Afterward, you can continue to chat with your guide, or take a look outdoors to see if the aurora borealis is lighting up the night sky. This location has few artificial lights, which makes it a prime place to see the Northern Lights. When ready, head to your lavvu for a cozy night of sleeping on reindeer hides in winter-insulated sleeping bags.
In the morning, breakfast is served before you are transferred back to Tromsø where your tour ends around 9:30am.

Unforgettable night. Raindeer pulling sleds, feeding the raindeer, getting fed, and hearing about the great rich culture of raindeer handlers was worth every cent. We opted to stay over night, we were greeted by a raindeer handler who told us stories, set up a fire inside the tent and out, told us when the best times to see the lights were, and most importantly allowed us to feel at home inside a tent. I’ve been to great places before but this experience make this trip a hard one to beat. I definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone. Thank you very much for a great experience.

Excursion ou l'on est dépaysé. Nous n'avons pas vu d'aurore boreale mais c'est la nature qui le décide. Les guides sont accueillants et très gentils Maintenant l'excursion nous paraît un peu chère ..
