    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!

    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.

    It was a fun day out feeding the reindeers, and going for the reindeer sledding thereafter! The Sami people were very friendly, and it was interesting to learn about the Sami culture. The stew cooked by them were delicious too. Not forgetting the amazing surrounding scenery of the lakes and mountains. Would definitely consider doing it again in future!
