Tromsø - Reindeer Sledding & Sami Culture


This excursion will take you to the majestic Lyngen Alps where beautiful fjords meet alpine mountains.

The reindeers are waiting for you to arrive at Camp Tamok. A bus will take you from your hotel to the camp. Upon arrival, you will receive comfortable outdoor clothing and shoes. A special Sami guide will meet you and bring you to the reindeers.

During the trip, you will be driving in pairs with one reindeer pulling the sleigh. All you have to do is sit back and make sure you are comfortable so you can enjoy and observe the majestic and magical views of the beautiful mountains that the area offers..

After the sledding trip, you will go back to a warm lavvu (Sami tent), where there will be a bonfire. The perfect cozy setting to learn more about the Sami culture and people. You can try some lasso-throwing, a way to catch reindeers, hear some folk tales and you will get the chance to feed the reindeers! Before the tour ends, you will go to the dining lavvu, where a hot meal will be served.
