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.
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 200 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.

Reindeer with attitude!

Great fun! We chose an afternoon trip for this, and were lucky enough to have a sunny day. Feeding the reindeer was an experience: they have distinct personalities and will happily lock horns with any others between them and the feeding bucket. Our trip included...More

Close up with the reindeer

It was really good fun being able to feed and interact with the reindeer. You are not constrained as to which to feed, and where to go, just allowed to roam and find the reindeer that are interesting. They are complete domesticated and very friendly.

The highlight of our Tromso visit

Prompted by the TV video 'The Sleigh Ride', our daughter gave us this trip as a Christmas present this year, and it turned out to be one of the best gifts ever. Meeting the Sami family, Johnnie and Lena, with their 9 month and three...More
