Sami Reindeer Experience

01 November - 06 April

Tromsø Day Tour

Experience authentic Sami culture on this trip to a reindeer farm outside Tromsø.


After meeting you in the city center we will go on a 25 minute seaside drive. Once we’ve arrived at the camp you will meet the Sami family and get a short introduction into their lives with the reindeer. Following that you will get to feed and interact with the reindeer, practice lasso throwing and go on a short reindeer-sledding ride (optional).

You’ll be offered hot traditional meal and hot drinks, followed by a gathering inside the lavvu, where you’ll enjoy Sami history and storytelling and a joik performance, the traditional song of the Sami.
