This tour is a must if you're visiting Tromso, I was in two minds whether to do it at first but so glad that I did. First I fed the Reindeers which was amazing, they give you plenty of time to do this and get photos. Next I did the sled ride which was followed by home made food

We had a specially booked evening tour in late March, so it was still full winter. We experienced a reindeer sled ride in freshly falling snow, a hearty stew dinner in a tepee and got to feed the reindeer. This was truly unique.

I promise not to post all 500 pictures of the reindeer, but I seriously took about 500 photos. They were so cute! Anyway, the reindeer feeding and Sami Culture tour was great. To be honest though, it's going to be what you make of it. They manage a lot of people at one time

This was truly an amazing experience and one I would recommend everyone to do while in Tromsø! You get picked up by very friendly staff and driven all the way out to the camp. At the camp you meet even more very friendly staff and get instructions about what that will happen
