Our Story

Our family has been living with Reindeer for hundreds if not thousands of years. Although we now use snow machines, boats and even helicopters to move the Reindeer the traditions and our way of life still remain. We wish to share these traditions with you and leave you with a greater understanding of our way of life and history.

We also want you to have fun and experience the joy of being close to the Reindeer, the feeling of coming from outside into a warm lavvu with the smells of a cooked lunch mixing with the log fire warming the senses and bringing with a peace and calm which is only increased as the sounds of the traditional joik fills the lavvu. This can be followed by basking under the midnight sun in the summer months or watching the Northern Lights in the Winter. These rituals and experiences are something that we enjoy and it is our pleasure and aim to share this with our guests.

Between the families we have thousands of Reindeer around Tromsø and pastures further away.
