Northern Lights and Reindeer Sledding in Tromso
Getting an authentic taste of Sámi culture is off limits for most tourists to northern Norway. A Sámi reindeer-herder guide leads this tour from Tromsø. They introduce you to their animals, invite you into their lavvu, and tell 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 Tromsø 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 Sámi guide tells you stories about the Sámi, the indigenous people of northern Europe. Afterward, head outside to (hopefully) spot Northern Lights. 

Relax on your journey back to Tromsø where your tour concludes with a drop-off back at the original departure point.

Just go already!

We had an amazing experience during our trip in February 2018. It gets very cold so you should dress accordingly, but the guides also provide additional apparel (boots, mittens, polar onesies, hats) there after the bus ride. There is also a vegetarian option to the...More
