Join us for an authentic Sami culture and reindeer sledding experience at our wilderness center Camp Tamok
This tour is conducted by Camp Tamok & Ice Domes.
A 90-minute scenic drive from downtown Tromso in Northern Norway. Daily departures via scenic fjord and mountain landscape every morning throughout the winter season offer wonderful views.
Upon arrival at Camp Tamok, we dress in warm winter clothes and boots and then head off to explore the ancient part of Sami culture and try the oldest form of transport in the north. As our reindeer herd is some distance from our barking huskies, your adventure will start with a short transfer by minibus to our Sami Camp. This fascinating cultural adventure includes reindeer sledding, introduction in lasso throwing, storytelling about the Sami culture and feeding the reindeer. This is a soft adventure, as we call it, since it is friendly and suitable for all family members even the youngest ones. The Sami culture & Reindeer sledding takes 1,5 hour itself.
After this unforgettable encounter with the indigenous Sami people, you will return to Camp Tamok where we will serve you a hot meal around an open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. After relaxing and warming up, it is time to head back to Tromso and reflect on a memorable experience.
