Reindeer Sledding, Reindeer Feeding and Sami Culture - Afternoon

Tromsø Lapland

Try the oldest means of transport from the arctic and join the daily feeding of a herd of over 200 reindeer! Enjoy the Arctic landscape in this daytime tour and learn more about reindeers and the Sami culture.

Get to know our herd of 200 reindeer and join on a 30-minute sled ride while enjoying our beautiful, untouched arctic nature and the Lyngen Alps in the background.

After the sled tour, you will head towards the fence and feed our lovely reindeers (many of the reindeer will even eat from your hand!). Right after, it is time for dinner. We will gather in our Gamme (Traditional Sami hut) Where you will enjoy some hot drinks and taste our traditional reindeer stew (Biddos).

When we are all settled and comfortable, our Sami guide will tell you more about the Sami culture and history, they will show you some of our traditional handicrafts and clothes too. There will be also time for questions, feel free to participate and ask our guide!

 

*IMPORTANT: The Reindeer Sledding (30 minutes activity) is subject to good snow conditions and sometimes we have to adjust the duration of this activity. If the weather does not allow us to run the sled-ride at all, we will offer you a partial refund. The rest of the tour will be held as normal.


*All animals used for these services are trained for the activity, however, the behaviour of these animals can be unpredictable and therefore it is essential that all participants follow all given instructions for their safety, and the safety of others.


*The sledding takes place as a "raid" where each reindeer and sled are bound together in a long row with the lead reindeer in the front. This means that sleds are shared, two participants per sled.

 

Number of participants: 8-48.

Level of difficulty: Easy / Family.

Not suitable for wheelchair as the snow/terrain make it difficult to manoeuvre around the location.
