Reindeer sledding

Let reindeer drag you across the white plains of Finnmark in Northern Norway.

Travelling at a gentle pace through enchanting forests and across frozen plateaus provides you with a peaceful insight into the ancient Sami way of life.

Wrapped up snugly under reindeer skins in your sled, you will be seduced by the silence and the beauty of the surroundings. There is no exhaust and no engine noise. All you can hear is the crunching of the sled as it glides over the white snow. 

If you are seeking a real adrenalin kick, you can speed things up a little by being pulled along by a reindeer whilst you stand on skis.

Reindeer sledding trips are available throughout the country, particularly in Finnmark.
