Highlights
    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.
