Incredible and unique experience! We saw several pods of orcas, as well as humpback whales all feeding and feasting on shoals of herring. We expected to see one or two individuals but instead were spoiled by Mother Nature. Additionally, the crew were absolutely fantastic, helpful, kind and very knowledgeable. The Captain ensures to respect the animals in their natural habitat by keeping a healthy distance, allowing these beautiful creatures to approach the boat instead, once they feel comfortable enough to do so. A must do in Tromsø.
Altogether this trip is well organized, the meeting point is easy to find, the guide and Sami hosts are nice and friendly. Though no sledding due to lack of snow, I still had a great time feeding these reindeers, other than the reindeers, the ranch is surrounded by beautiful mountains and fjords which were worth taking pictures, and don’t forget to taste the reindeer soup, it is delicious. In one word, I strongly recommend this tour to you.
Very nice experience! It was possible to walk together with reindeers, feed them, pet them and observe them in the place they live. It was also possible to sit inside at the fire and warm yourself, whenever you got cold. Fantastic food and warm drinks were available as well. I appreciated the story telling about sami history and culture. And the “joiking” at the end made me even cry a little! Highly recommend!
We did see the northern lights, and we could not go dog-sledding due to lack of snow. But no human can do anything about that... Thanks to kind and knowledgeable staff, we still had a great night out. Sitting by the fireside, meeting the huskies (such a wild but cuddly bunch!) and having a nice dinner in the "gamme" - a really good experience. Also, well-arranged transport from downtown Tromsø and back.
Actually I wanted to give 5 stars, but then I thought - it is always some things one can improve. I would like to hear more information about whales and nordic nature. It could be nice entertainment and a source of information.
