About Tromso Arctic Reindeer
Tromsø Arctic Reindeer Experience is a complete Sami Reindeer experience carried out by traditional Sami Reindeer Herders within a 30 minute drive of Tromsø. We offer a number of packages but with all you will be hosted by Reindeer herders who will show and teach you about Reindeer herding and Sami culture. We have thousands of reindeer in the mountains and a herd of around 200 Reindeer at the camp so you are guaranteed to experience the joy of being close to these wonderful creatures, the feeling of coming into a warm lavvu (Sami tent) and the sounds of the traditional joik (Sami singing). This is a ritual which for us is an important way of life and it is our pleasure and aim to let you feel and experience it. We look forward to welcoming you.

Very nice experience. It as well organized and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The reindeer were fun to feed although one was a little aggressive, but he didn’t hurt me. The reindeer stew was delicious and there were plenty of warm drinks and cookies. Remember to bundle up and wear warm shoes!

Clever organized. We got to be around the reindeers and could go in and out of the lavos as we liked. Then a nice meal and we learned about the sami culture by the fire. Very friendly staff.

Very nice getting to walk freely around the reindeers. There was enough time to spend with them. It was also warm and cozy in the lavos, even though outside it was cold.
