Duration:
4 hours

Join Sami guides for an unforgettable reindeer experience. 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 centre, you will visit their camp and have a chance to feed the herd of around 200 wild reindeer who will swarm all around and some will even eat from your hands. Guides will also teach you how to use the lasso (but not on real reindeer).

You will then be given some guidance and history about reindeer sledding and go on a short sledding ride near the sea with the mountains in the background. All the reindeer at the camp live wild for most of the year and are only at the camp for a few months over winter to protect them from predators and harsh winter conditions. You will then be invited inside a gamme (a traditional sami hut) where you will be served warm drinks and a traditional Sami meal will be cooked over the fire (vegetarian option available).

After lunch 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.
