Overview
You can travel through the Tromso countryside on your own, but it wouldn’t be anything like this reindeer sledding and Sami culture tour. The excursion includes a reindeer-drawn sled ride plus a visit to a traditional lavuu (Sami tent) to enjoy a meal and cultural stories. You’ll also get the chance to stand with a herd of 200 reindeer under close supervision from a guide.
Itinerary
Highlights
  • See a herd of 200 reindeer during this guided sledding and Sami culture tour 
  • Travel through Tromso’s countryside on a reindeer-drawn sled 
  • Grab a traditional Sami meal by a campfire as you learn about Sami culture 
What to Expect
Meet your guide for your tour and hop in a sled pulled by reindeer. Ride through the forest for a while until you get to an area with around 300 reindeer. Get out and under the close supervision of your guide, stand with the reindeer and even take part in an optional feeding. Afterward, head to a lavuu (a Samil tent), and warm up with a coffee and traditional Sami soup while you listen to stories about Sami culture. Once your tour is over, you'll need to find your own way back to your hotel.
