This tour is conducted by Tromsø Lapland. Get to know our herd of 300 reindeer and join on a 30-minute sleigh ride while enjoying the beautiful nature around us and the wonderful night sky from the north!
According to Saami people, the northern lights have a sound. Sit quiet and listen: maybe you can hear it too! We can not predict when lady aurora shows up, but we are lucky to have a location with very little light pollution and beautiful nature to experience this phenomenon in all its splendour!
After the sleigh ride, 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!
*If the snow conditions are unfavourable, we keep the right to amend the duration of the reindeer sledding.
*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.
*Alternative: The Reindeer Sledding is subject to good snow conditions and if the weather does not allow us to run the sled-ride we will offer you a partial refund.
