    Wonderful experience. Absolutely worth it and one of a kind. Stunning landscapes and adorable reindeers surrounding you, what else can you ask for? The food was also pretty good - reindeer stew - a unique taste that is worth a taste! The storytelling was also quite interesting and the lasso lession very fun! All around an amazing experience.

    It was an amazing experience, one of the best in my life. At the beginning I though 4 hours is a little bit short, however it is very good organized and you have plenty of time to slide, feed the reindeers, talk with the sami’s , and you can also go to warm up a bit on different tents with hot drinks. The lunch is also traditional and very nice. Precious experience, the reindeers are lovely.

    Fabulous experience. Get in touch with 300 reindeer, get carried on sleds and feed them in their vast land. It is also exciting to learn about the traditions and history of the Sami people, with stories and lunch in a tent in front of the fire. Don't be afraid to travel, a life without these experiences is scarier !!!
