We had a great experience at the reindeer farm: feeding the animals, taking a sledding tour (this was about 15 min, but that was enough, considering the low temperatures outside), the dinner, the firecamp, the explanations about the Sami culture… The staff was nice and they even marked the fact that it was my birthday - what a nice touch! All in all, a one of a kind experience. Don’t look at the budget too much - just do it!

Once in a lifetime experience! If you come in Tromso you should ABSOLUTELY book this trip! Every single person who works there is polite and helpful especially the lady who owns the land with the reindeers! She will teach you everything about Sami people, you will eat the most delicious soup, feed and pet the reindeers! Don’t forget to try reindeer sledding! You won’t regret it we promise!

It was a really great activity and staffs were really kind! There were so many reindeers and they’re surprisingly enthusiastic to be fed! We had a really fun time!

We had a great time. The guides are very friendly and the dogs are awesome. I can defenitely recommend this activity

Great views along the route, nice people and warm soup at the end. Recommend!
