Our guides will meet you at the quay for a 25-minute drive to the sledding site. Enjoy a 25-30 minute sleigh ride, led by reindeer, through a tranquil valley and along a coastal route. Afterwards, you'll have the opportunity to feed the reindeer before joining us in the gamme for a traditional meal by the fire. The day concludes with Sami stories and joik (songs).

The Sami, the indigenous people of the North, possess their unique language and culture and inhabit an unofficial territory spanning Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia.

   

The Sami reindeer herding family in Tromsø has been engaged with these animals for generations, nurturing a flock of hundreds. They invite you to partake in their culture and customs, promising a memorable reindeer sledding ride, an authentic Sami meal in a gamme, and an evening of storytelling and joiking (Sami singing) around a campfire.

   

NO SNOW: The winter weather in Tromsø is variable. In certain situations like rain leading to ice and slipperiness, high winds, or heavy snow, we may have to cancel the reindeer sledding segment of the tour for the safety of our guests and the reindeer. If this occurs, we will strive to notify you as early as possible and offer two options: 1.) a full refund and you opt not to join the tour or 2.) you join us for the remaining activities (Reindeer Feeding and Sami Culture) and receive a partial refund to account for the cancellation of the reindeer sledding.
