Night Reindeer Sledding, Dinner & Chance of Northern Lights

1. Night Reindeer Sledding, Dinner & Chance of Northern Lights

This is an experience to feed the reindeer and go reindeer sledding in the nightime. You will also have a traditional Sami dinner with the Sami reindeer herders while they tell you about their culture and their beliefs. The reindeer and the Sami have been living and working on this land for centuries and they have only recently invited guests to be part of their daily life. After a 25-minute drive from the city center, you will visit their camp and have a chance to feed the herd of around 300 wild reindeer who will swarm all around and some will even eat from your hands. You will then be invited for hot drinks (tea, coffee, hot chocolate) around the fire inside a warm candle lit gamme (traditional Sami hut) where you will then be served a relaxed three course meal including bidos cooked over the open fire (a traditional Sami stew which is often served at Sami weddings and other special occasions). A vegetarian option is also possible. After dinner you will be invited into a lavuu (Sami tent) and gather round the fire to listen to stories about Sami culture and how it is to be a reindeer herder. The Sami guide will also perform a joik (traditional Sami song) for the guests. If you are lucky and the sky is clear you will have a chance to see the northern lights above the reindeer camp.

What people are saying about Troms County

We had a great experience at the reindeer farm: feeding the animals, taking a sledding tour (this was about 15 min, but that was enough, considering the low temperatures outside), the dinner, the firecamp, the explanations about the Sami culture… The staff was nice and they even marked the fact that it was my birthday - what a nice touch! All in all, a one of a kind experience. Don’t look at the budget too much - just do it!

Love it so much ! Had the best experience with the reindeers. We learned so much about the Sami culture and the reindeers. A 3 course meal was provided for us with the options for vegetarians. Also, we went reindeer sledding under the start which was beautiful. At the end we could even see the norther lights. Best experience ever!

An absolutely fantastic experience out with you. We will come again (Okay a minus .... the taxi bus we drove home played such loud music that it was directly uncomfortable in the ears. We asked to be put off. It was an anticlimax after a great night out in the silence.)

We can really say, this felt authentic and worth the money. The four hours flew by and we are sincerely grateful for the experience!!

Very professional skipper/guide, polite and kind. Excellent experience as we hoped for
