Northern Lights and Reindeer Sledding in Tromso
From US$204.09
Most visitors to Northern Norway don't get an authentic taste of Sámi culture, but you will with this tour from Tromso that's lead by a Sámi reindeer-herder guide. You are introduced to animals, invited into a lavvu (like a tipi), and told stories about the culture of the Sámi, the indigenous people of Northern Europe. Enjoy sledding through the pristine Arctic wilderness, spot the northern lights, and savor a delicious meal inside the lavvu.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with a pickup from Tromso city center. Meet your guide and settle into the vehicle for the journey out of the city.
Upon arrival at the destination, don your provided thermal suit and jump aboard a sled for an adventure through the snow. Afterward, spend some time getting to know the reindeer. Under careful supervision from your reindeer-herder guide, you may pet and feed the animals.
Next, enter a lavvu, a temporary dwelling used by the Sámi people, and warm up with a traditional stew and hot drinks. Listen as your guide tells you stories about the Sámi, the indigenous people of Northern Europe. Afterward, head outside to (hopefully) spot the northern lights.
Relax on your journey back to Tromso, where your tour concludes with drop-off back at the original departure point.
