Not sure which is the best bit, racing the reindeer, or the Sami hospitality in the tepee in the snow.

Brilliant if a little scary. You are actually on a single sled, on your knees being pulled by a reindeer. Awesome!

Very worthwhile! Really enjoyed meeting and dining with the Sami people. Also, being pulled on individual reindeer sleds was amazing - they are truly magnificent animals. They can run up to 50mph!

Short walk from the Ice Hotel. Very informative little camp and museum. Cute reindeer to feed and pet and then a gorgeous little cafe with a huge fire, hot chocolate and film show. Fabulous.

Enjoyed our Sami camp experience. Very friendly, up close with the reindeer, ate traditional reindeer with lingonberries in flat bread. Learned a lot about the Sami life and history.

Small but very nice way the get an insight in the sami World and heritage. You can walk around and get information about history and way of living plus pet the reindeers. We also had coffee in the sami tent by the open fire! Nice shop where you can buy local handicrafts.

Very expensive place for what you get to see. What saves it is the opportunity to get up and close with the raindeers. Probably better for a summer avtivity.

We stayed 2 nights.Planned cultural,photographic and reindeer sledding trip. Intense cold -43.5 degrees. Excellent food. Warm hospitality. Too cold to exercise the reindeers on the scheduled day.Spectacular photographic locations,and meal with Sami cuisine.Two nights of auroras with warm cabins and sauna close to hand. Rescheduled demonstration sledding by helpful hosts. Great time.

We are in our late sixties and travel frequently. We do have a positive approach to most experiences. We stayed at the Ice Hotel for our 45th anniversary so we were picked up from there for a short snowmobile sleigh ride to the Sami Camp. We were part of a small group of people from different parts of the world... More
