Full description
This is an experience to feed the reindeer and go reindeer sledding in the nightime. You will also have a traditional Sami dinner with the Sami reindeer herders while they tell you about their culture and their beliefs. The reindeer and the Sami have been living and working on this land for centuries and they have only recently invited guests to be part of their daily life.

After a 25-minute drive from the city center, you will visit their camp and have a chance to feed the herd of around 200 wild reindeer who will swarm all around and some will even eat from your hands.

You will then be invited for hot drinks (tea, coffee, hot chocolate) around the fire inside a warm candle lit gamme (traditional Sami hut) where you will then be served a relaxed three course meal including bidos cooked over the open fire (a traditional Sami stew which is often served at Sami weddings and other special occasions). A vegetarian option is also possible. After dinner you will be invited into a lavuu (Sami tent) and gather round the fire to listen to stories about Sami culture and how it is to be a reindeer herder. The Sami guide will also perform a joik (traditional Sami song) for the guests. If you are lucky and the sky is clear you will have a chance to see the northern lights above the reindeer camp.
