This reindeer sledding and Sami cultural tour picks you up from the Radisson Blu Hotel in Tromso. Board a coach bus and take a short ride to the countryside.

Meet your guide for your tour and hop in a sled pulled by reindeer. Ride through the forest for a while until you get to an area with around 200 reindeer. Get out and under the close supervision of your guide, stand with the reindeer and even take part in an optional feeding.

Afterward, head to a lavuu (a Samil tent), and warm up with a coffee and traditional Sami soup while you listen to stories about Sami culture.

Once your tour is over, ride back in a coach bus for a drop-off at Tromso.

I would recommend this tour to families with children, as well as adults. The staff was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Learning first hand about the Sami traditions and culture was invaluable.
