The sled ride was exactly as you see on the website, not exciting, but a good experience anyway. Feeding the reindeer is great, just to be able to be so close to them was a thrill. Lunch was awful, a watery brown broth with the odd bit of vegetable, really tasteless. There

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the sledding and had an overall positive experience. Our reindeers do their best, and so do we. We're sorry that you didn't like the soup.

It was a great experience to see the Sami culture and learn about their traditional way of life. I enjoyed the simplicity as well as appreciated the hardship that they can encounter during the very cold winters. Reindeer sledding was nice to experience, but it was a shame that

Dear Charlene, Thank you for the great feedback, we really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. The lack of lights on the sledges is to reduce light pollution to allow for a better view of the Northern Lights. We are really happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit to us. Best regards from a fellow culture buff, Bernhard

The scenic transfer is really beautiful, as well as the views ‘on set’. The reindeer were lovely, and we were friendly welcomed. However, the ‘saami’ culture was pretty disappointing, as everything seemed a bit ‘fake’ and veeeery touristy, so not really authentic. I expected a

Dear Lisabel, We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. Sami people are not an uncontacted tribe. There is technology, and Sami people do not live in reservations. At our camp you can see how people who work with reindeers live and work today, and during the cultural presentation you also get a glimpse into the past. Best, Bernhard
