I am still speechless and unable to define how amazing this experience was! Besides the reindeers which were the part I thought I would have enjoyed the most (I am a 100% animal person), what I cannot forget are the stories about the Sami and...More

A heart warming experience. Hand feeding reindeer is a buzz :) if you possibly can, go as part of a small group as we were unable to join the sled rides because of a large number of 'forceful' other folk. But to hear a little...More

Yes this place is super touristy with about two hundred tourists descending a day and the reindeers are super adorable, cute and gentle. Yes the price can be super expensive but this is Norway and besides hunting the Northern lights. Sleighing in either a reindeer...More

I'm so happy that I booked this tour. The team was amazing! Reindeers galore! More than enough to go around. The history and background about the Sami culture and reindeers was very informative. Everyone made sure we were enjoying ourselves. I'm very happy I booked...More

The experience with reindeer was awesome, and although they are wild they are generally very calm. The Sami culture was super interesting and the joik singing was my favourite. It is on of the best activities I have had in Tromso. I strongly recommend this.

Those who are in Tromsø should not miss the tour with "Arctic Reindeer Experience". This four-hour tour (including the short 20-minute bus ride from Tromsø) takes you to the Sami. The Sami are a Finno-Ugric people inhabiting Sápmi. After the arrival and the friendly greeting...More

yes, almost all the team at the camp have small kids so we are very used to looking after little ones and will make sure they stay warm and also get to be close but safe when with the reindeer.
