Reindeer Sledding and Sami Culture Including Lunch in Tromso
Immerse yourself in Sami culture on this tour of Norway's arctic pursuits from Tromsø. Go sledding with reindeer, learn to throw a lasso, and hear about the culture and history of the Sami, the indigenous people of the arctic. Taste the local food and hear joik, or traditional Sami singing. Round-trip transportation from central Tromsø included.
What to Expect

The Reindeer Sledding is an important part of the experience as the oldest known form of transport in the north and central part of the Sami culture. The sledding takes place as a "raid" where each reindeer and sled are bound together in a long row with the lead reindeer in the front.

By taking part in this daytime excursion we hope you will be charmed by the fascinating reindeer and find you love our gentle but curious and furry creatures just like we do - Our true hero in the Arctic

* If conditions change, we keep the right to amend the duration of the reindeer sledding.

* Alternative: The Reindeer Sledding is subject to snow and when there is not enough snow we offer Reindeer Feeding and Sami Culture instead.

Wonderful experience

I was worried that this would be a commercial experience as there were so many people attending, but it was the opposite. This is a relatively new venture by the young family to invite people into their lives and on to their farm to get...More
