It was a fun day out feeding the reindeers, and going for the reindeer sledding thereafter! The Sami people were very friendly, and it was interesting to learn about the Sami culture. The stew cooked by them were delicious too. Not forgetting the amazing surrounding scenery of the lakes and mountains. Would definitely consider doing it again in future!

The experience with Getyourguide was amazing. We arrived to the farm and met and helped feed the 300 or so reindeer. It was a great hands on experience followed by a 30 minute sleigh ride (or 10 mins available too). It was worth paying the extra for a longer ride along the edge of a beautiful fjord. We then had lunch and a tan from the Sami guide which was very interesting around a log fire. I am almost 80 and found the experience very manageable. As long as you're able to sit down on the sleigh, the rest is very relaxing and enjoyable. The trip is what it says on the tin! Highly recommended.
