Reindeer Sledding Evening - Incl. Transport

Get close to the majestic and festive creatures and learn about the people that have been herding them for centuries. Come on this reindeer sledding experience and meet the indigenous Sami people as you learn about their culture and interact with and feed their reindeers.

Join us for an authentic experience at our wilderness center, Camp Tamok. For this tour you will be picked up from the city center of Tromsø, from where you will be taken to Camp Tamok, a 90-minute scenic bus drive away. 


Upon arrival, we will first provide warm winter clothes and other required gear for this reindeer sledding activity. As our reindeer herd is some distance away from our barking huskies, this activity will start with a short transfer by minibus. This fascinating cultural adventure includes reindeer sledding, an introduction to lasso throwing, storytelling about the Sami culture and feeding the reindeer. There are 5 – 6 reindeer at the camp. 


After this memorable 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 board the bus and head back to the city center of Tromsø.
