Overview
Immerse yourself in Sami culture and feed a herd of 200 reindeer during this 4-hour adventure from Tromsø. With your Sami guides, travel approximately 25 minutes from Tromso to the Sami camp. Enter the lavuu, or traditional Sami tent, for a typical meal with your hosts. Learn about the culture, history, traditions and folklore of the Sami people while sitting around the campfire. Listen as the guides perform a joik, or traditional Sami song. Be sure to bring warm, layered clothing. Round-trip transportation from Tromsø is included.
What to Expect
Meet your tour group and Sami guides at a centrally located meeting place to start your adventure. Be sure to dress in warm clothing, including gloves and a hat. Board a comfortable vehicle for the 25-minute trip to the Sami camp. 

Upon arrival at the camp, get a chance to feed the herd of over 200 reindeer. This herd is the source of their livelihood, a tradition for the Sami people, who are historically nomadic. Try out some lasso throwing on a practice target, gaining an appreciation of how the Sami manage their herd.

After the feeding, make your way inside the lavuu, or traditional tent, to warm up. Listen to stories and facts about the people's culture, traditions and history. Enjoy a lunch of bidos, a type of soup, and cake with coffee. Hear a performance of a joik, a song in the native Sami style. 

Board your vehicle for the 25-minute return trip back to the departure point in Tromsø city center.

A must do experience

The reindeer are really tame & love being fed from the buckets provided. We then sat in front of huge fires whilst eating soup (vegetarian & meat eaters are both catered for). Finally, we listened to a Sami woman describing her clothes, culture & life....More
