Full description

Discover a Sámi reindeer camp with this unique tour from Tromsø. Travel to the camp at Breivikeidet to feed the reindeer. Have the chance to see the northern lights and experience eating Bithos (a traditional Sámi dish).

Meet your guide and travel to camp Breivikeidet which is surrounded by mountains. Step off the bus and admire the view of the Lyngen Alps. Follow your guide to the reindeer fence to pet and feed the reindeer. Learn about these animals from your guide.

Spot the dancing Aurora should it be out. It's an excellent place to spot the Aurora in the night sky above your head as there is little artificial light. Continue to an authentic Gamme (traditional Sámi housing). Get cozy as you savor Bithos, which is a meal only reserved for special occasions.

Hear about what life is like in the Arctic for the Sámi people. Listen to a joik (Sámi folk music). Return to Tromsø.

Well organized, they provide exceptional cold-weather coveralls to put on top of your own clothes. Belle the reindeer and feed them. Unfortunately, the overcast sky showed a faint aurora that turned gray to the naked eye while it turned green in the photos (don't ask me why). Interesting Sami history and good meal; the only negative note is the bathroom: it is a hole in the center of a fairly high bench (therefore, if you are a woman less than 2 meters tall you have to sit) and underneath there is a bucket that collects everything ... But still nice

Very nice guides with the necessary portion of humor. We drove to 2 places where we had little success at the first. Were lucky with the weather, campfire was very cozy. Keep in mind that this is a trip with a large bus, so you can't just get everywhere (quickly). I had a fantastic price quality trip!

Just beautiful, I can't put it into words. Such lovely animals and our Sami leader explained everything in a humorous and great way. We were looked after very lovingly and my wife, who is vegetarian, also got an extra soup. Thank you for this great stay and for letting us have this experience
