    It was an amazing experience. We enjoyed the feeding, the bidos (the Sami reindeer soup), Sami stories and songs. Although the reindeer sledding was cancelled because there was no snow, we got the refund back for that bit. The most memorable part was we saw northern lights at the end of the tour. We did not expect to see northern lights at 4 pm. That was magical!

    What a great experience! Even though there was no snow and we could not go sledding, it was totally worth it. We got to feed the reindeer and hang d we it’s them for a long time. We learned about the Sami culture and we enjoyed a delicious meal. Very happy with this experience.

    Lovely time meeting the reindeer and learning about the Sami culture. We booked the 10min sledding experience and unfortunately there was enough snow but were offered the meet the reindeer experience instead and refunded the difference. Trip was very well organised, you meet, get on a coach and are taken around 25mins away to the camp. When you arrive, you are briefed and then given buckets to feed the reindeer with. After a while, you move inside for lunch and hot drinks then meet finally to hear stories about the Sami culture, listen to a song and ask any questions. Coaches are then waiting to take you straight back to Tromso centre.
