Actual Sami people that have a reindeer farm that they take great care of. It was a 45 mins drive to the place from Tromso central, and we totally loved it. Everyone gets a bucket filled with food and gets to feed the beautiful animals that are very friendly, even though sometimes they get a bit too excited about the food:)) You can upgrade to a reindeer sledding as well but if you don't you get extra time with the reindeers in the farm. After that you get a warm meal in the tent - reindeer stew and the sami people out there tell you a little bit abiut their traditions. They are super open to questions and always trying their best to make sure everyone has a great time.

It was amazing! The instructor was extremely kind and helpful, and it was an overall fun experience. We rode with the dog-sledding tour, so we got to meet and cuddle the huskies at the end, which was an added bonus. The activity was just the right amount of time, and it was organized very well.

Great experience to be among reindeer and have plenty of time to consider their behavior. Very instructive to hear about the Sami culture. All in peace and beautiful surroundings

Amazing tour! Super friendly guides! Naughty, strong, smart and friendly reindeers and of course: delicious food!! Would do it 100 times and so would my kids!

Very positive experience of feeding reindeer and staying among them, sweet and too adorable animals!! Good warm welcome from Sami, thank you!!
