Very interesting tour! Recommended for young and old. You learn a lot about the Sami and the length of the reindeer tour is just right. It is also very good that you can visit the Icedom for a short time. So you cover 3 experiences in one tour at a fair price.

Real one of a kind experience, can recommend, staff were very nice too. Going at night is a bit of a gamble though, if the sky is clear and you can see the lights then there's nothing like it, but the chances of that happening are low, and you miss the scenery

Great tour with beautiful northern lights. The bus ride is a bit long, but in the camp itself the people are really motivated and friendly and the offer is great.

Itnwas great. Everyone was very kind and the drinks and the food so nice. The dogs are so cute. I wish it was an hour longer, but still unforgetable. Thank you.

The place is magical and the staff very friendly. The dogs seem well treated. I recommend ! It was a fantastic evening
