Reindeer Feeding, Sami Culture, and Short Reindeer Sledding Tour from Tromso
Visit a reindeer camp outside of Tromsø on this 3.5-hour tour that introduces you to a little Norwegian culture. You'll have a chance to feed a herd of 200 reindeer, take a 5- to 10-minute reindeer sled ride, and then gather inside a Sami tent for a hot meal and to hear stories about Sami culture around the campfire. A guide also performs a traditional song. Select a morning or afternoon departure time when booking.
After pickup from Tromsø in the morning or afternoon (depending on option selected), your tour starts with the 25-minute drive to the reindeer camp.
Feed the wild reindeer, enjoy a short reindeer-pulled sled ride (about 10 minutes), and try lasso throwing, if you wish (not on real reindeer). Then warm up with coffee inside a lavuu (traditional Sami tent), and listen to stories of Sami culture as you enjoy a hot lunch of bidos (a Sami soup) with more coffee and cake. Listen to the sounds of a joik (traditional Sami folk song), and then return to Tromsø to end your half-day tour.
