    Very good experience for my 8 year old son and myself. Reasonable transfer in terms of duration (less than 30 minutes). My son was impressed by the reindeer, in large numbers, who came in groups around us to eat, to see fighting for who would access our bucket of food. The reindeer antlers were level with his face, which did not reassure him. The sleigh ride is quite limited, it is only 1 tour at the bottom of the "field" where the reindeer are. The availability of the guides, the food, the Sami explanations, the songs, the warmth of the huts where we drank and ate were great! on the other hand, a group of 50 people is a bit too much for an "authentic" outing.

    The Sami people are incredible very knowledgeable and welcoming people with a unrivalled passion for the way off life . I went with my two daughters aged 16 and 20 they loved the interaction with the reindeer and the story of the Sami peoples way of life and their history. The trip is brilliant form start to finish.

    Fun night for my family with 2 teens. We managed to see aurora boreal and it was beautiful. The reindeer sledding was ok but my kids loved the feeding where u can also pet them. The dinner was good and the story telling was nice too about local tradition and culture, the feeling of sitting down around the fire was cozy and nice. I think it is a fun and great experience to have and sth different than just chasing the light. We had ask many little trips around Tromso and this one completed the experience. I would recommend if.
