About Tromso Lapland
We Sami are the indigenous people of Scandinavia and have been living and working with reindeers for centuries. We have countless generations of knowledge and experience of the fascinating and charming creature that has helped us survive life in this cold and extreme nature of the north. The reindeer is the true hero of the Arctic. We would like to invite you to visit our Sami camp and join us for a genuine and family-friendly reindeer sledding safari with an amazing view of the famous Lyngen Alp mountains. Hopefully you will learn to cherish and respect these curious and furry creatures just like we do! Our expert guides will also tell you about the secrets of surviving life in the Arctic and show you traditional artifacts and treasures from our culture.

Most visitors to Northern Norway don't get an authentic taste of Sámi culture, but you will on this tour from Tromso that's led by a Sámi reindeer-herder guide. You are introduced to animals, invited into a lavvu (like a tipi), and told 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.
