Join the english speaking authentic Sami guides, who come from a Sami family with long reindeer herding traditions, for a sleigh ride like no other. Enjoy an unforgettable experience of pure reindeer sledding as well as an introduction to Sami culture. The Samis are the only indigenous people in Europe and have been nomads in the Arctic territories of Russia, Finland, Sweden and Norway.
After a 20-minute drive from Tromsø city centre you will visit the Sami camp located in Kvaløya where the reindeer and sleds are waiting. You will then be given an introduction to reindeer sledding before you join the Sami guides for an unforgettable 20 minute experience of reindeer sledding.
Back at the camp you can learn more about the reindeer and even feed the herd of reindeer. If you are lucky they will feed from your hands! Inside the lavvu (a traditional Sami tent) warm drinks and a traditional Sami hot meal will be cooked over the fire and then served. After the meal you are invited to gather around the fire and listen to stories about Sami culture, life as a reindeer herder and even listen to the traditional Sami song called ‘joik’. If the conditions at the camp are good you may even have the opportunity to see the Northern Lights.
