    An absolutely incredible experience, every member of staff went above and beyond to make the experience memorable. The staff were incredibly attentive and really took my coeliac disease into account and ensured I could eat safely. They took excellent care of ensuring that every visitor was looked after, and the reindeer were truly respected, understood and cared for. The addition of the appearance of the northern lights making a spectacular display ensured that the evening was wonderful. The folklore of the Sami people told around the fire was charming and informative and an incredible addition and end to a most fantastic evening. It is not to be missed.

    Tour was nice, unfortunately a snowstorm raged, the reindeer are super nice and hungry, the sleigh ride in a circle doesn't have to be for a few minutes in my opinion, the reindeer probably don't like it that much either, so I preferred to feed them! The food was average, but the Sami lady was funny and sang beautifully and told very exciting stories. This tour is held in a very large group so very touristy, I recommend a smaller more personal tour which are also offered here.
