    Booked this before going on a cruise. The pick up point is right by where the shuttle bus from cruise dropped us off, it was very efficient. The Reindeer camp was about 30 mins away, where we were given buckets of feed to feed the reindeer, there was hot drinks n biscuits available throughout. We then did a 10 min sled ride, which was at a very gentle pace, it started snowing while we were out, but we were snug enough on our sled with a blanket over us and the ride was magical. The staff also take photos of you with your own phone / camera. We then went inside to have a bowl of hot stew / a vegetarian option is available and an interesting talk by a Sami person before your transfer back to Tromso

    Wow. We travel often to Scandinavia and just completed out 12-day visit to Norway, starting in Oslo and ending in Tromsø. One of the highlights of our trip was the Sami experience conducted by your team. We were blown away by the Sami, especially Inga, the 22 year-old who spoke to us, sang to us and shared her life story. We were moved to tears and now have a better appreciation for this amazing people. Our time with the reindeer was well done also. Thank you!

    What an absolutely wonderful experience, The activity was well organised and there was plenty of time available to spend with the reindeer, not only when feeding but also after lunch. It was all managed at a good leisurely pace which made it a very enjoyable experience.
