Overview
Crackling snow and clear night-time sky printed with green waves from the Northern Lights enjoyed from a sled being gently pulled by a reindeer. This genuine winter adventure is what we will do our best to give you on this tour.

We would also like to give you the opportunity to become better acquainted with the Sami culture and join a pleasant and fun Reindeer Sledding and look out for the Northern Lights at the same time.

Highlights
  • This tour from Tromso is led by a Sámi reindeer-herder
  • Your guide introduces you to Sámi culture
  • A home-cooked meal and hot drinks are included
  • Convenient round-trip transportation from Tromso
What to Expect
Your tour begins with a pickup from Tromso city center. Meet your guide and settle into the vehicle for the journey out of the city. Upon arrival at the destination, don your provided thermal suit and jump aboard a sled for an adventure through the snow. Afterward, spend some time getting to know the reindeer. Under careful supervision from your reindeer-herder guide, you may pet and feed the animals. Next, enter a lavvu, a temporary dwelling used by the Sámi people, and warm up with a traditional stew and hot drinks. Listen as your guide tells you stories about the Sámi, the indigenous people of Northern Europe. Afterward, head outside to (hopefully) spot the northern lights. Relax on your journey back to Tromso, where your tour concludes with drop-off back at the original departure point.

This was a great evening’s entertainment. My son loved feed the reindeer whilst the adults in our party were fascinated by the talk about Sami culture delivered by our friendly, engaging host. Good coffee, delicious food. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a lot the tour. The reindeer Sledding under a sky full of stars and a beautiful aurora was certainly an unforgettable experience. The food and the sami culture introduction were also very good. I would only suggest to allow visitors 15 minutes (you don't need more) to

Omg, just returned from this trip this evening. We got to go reindeer sledding, feed the reindeer and then had reindeer stew in a lovely tent while we learned about the Sami. An added bonus was seeing the northern lights while we were sledding. Would definitely recommend this

My sister and I were picked up at downtown Tromso and we rode a bus out to the Tromso Lapland camp 45 minutes away. It was a very scenic drive where the lights got scarcer and scarcer. When we got to the camp, we were given an option to suit up in the provided suits and boots,
