Full description
Depart Tromsø and travel to a nearby ranch where you will have the chance to feed a herd of around 200 wild reindeer. Marvel as the friendly animals swarm around you and eat straight from your hands.

Learn more about the Sami culture of the Arctic. They have been living and working on this land for centuries and have only recently invited guests to be part of their daily lives. Get invited inside a typical gamme (hut) and be served warm drinks and a traditional meal that has been cooked over the fire (vegetarian option available).

Then, gather around the fire at a traditional Sami lavuu (tent) to listen to stories about their culture. Hear what it is like to live as a reindeer herder, and watch a performance of a traditional joik (song) before making your way back to Tromsø.
