Tromsø Arctic Reindeer Experience

WELCOME TO TROMSØ ARCTIC REINDEER EXPERIENCE


Tromsø Arctic Reindeer Experience is a complete Sami reindeer experience carried out by traditional Sami reindeer herders within a 30 minute drive of Tromsø. We offer a number of packages but with all you will be hosted by reindeer herders who will show and teach you about reindeer herding and Sami culture.


The reindeer and the Sami have been living and working on the land for centuries and have only recently invited guests to be part of their daily life. With thousands of reindeer in the mountains and a herd of around 200 at the camp during the winter months you are guaranteed to experience the joy of being close to these wonderful creatures, the feeling of coming into a warm lavvu (Sami tent) and the sounds of the traditional joik (Sami singing). This is a ritual which for us is an important way of life and it is our pleasure and aim
to let you experience it.


Please take a moment to read more about the packages we have available. From reindeer feeding and sledding to the Northern Lights and Sami songs – there is something for everyone.
