This was a great experience. The sleigh ride with the reindeers is quite a short stroll. However it is then topped off with a great amount of time going to feed the reindeer. The Sami tent was a nice experience, and whilst the staff were lovely and the tent clean- there is reindeer hair everywhere from the blankets- and you have to keep the fire lit all night- otherwise it is freezing. But still such a wonderful experience. The only thing I would say is that even though you are staying the night (and paying quite a bit more) you are very much left to your own devices- so don’t expect any creature comforts.

Came here with my gf and we really had one of a lifetime experience. The reindeers were well taken care of, the surroundings and views were magical and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. It was really nice to meet the Sami host who gave us more info of their culture which is intetesting. The lavvo's were cosy and a memorabele experience just keep in mind you will have to wake up every 1.5h or so to replace logs for heating as it gets very cold inside. However, if the logs were in and the fire is on it can get really nice and warm. All in all, we would recommend this to anyone!

Great experience, everyone was super nice and made this experience so amazing. There was no snow so we did not have the opportunity to do the reindeer sledding but we got a refund for that.. Staying in the tent was such a magical experience but we were unlucky as it was super cloudy so no signs of aurora. Highly recommend the experience, learning about the same culture, feeding the reindeers and staying overnight is on the top of the things we did in Tromso!
