    This was my favorite of all tours. My little girls enjoyed it so much. Everything run smoothly and organized. The chat was perfect and the food was delicious. The sledding and animal feeding was fun and the historical talk was very educational and interesting. Everyone was very friendly and super humble. I would definitely recommend and hopefully return in the near future!

    The drive to the Samis was really quick, only 20 minutes from the center of Tromsø. Unfortunately, the whole thing has a very touristic impression at first glance. Nevertheless, the Samis were very warm to us and gave us a very good insight into their life and culture. Unfortunately, the majority of the reindeer were already fed up, so many reindeer were no longer interested in feeding. Maybe you should book the earlier tour here. The short sleigh ride was perfectly adequate and was fun.

    Great experience. Everything very well organized. The reindeer experience is really worth it. The included lunch was very good and also had a vegetarian option. Very friendly and super warm lunch spot. We loved the experience and would repeat it without a doubt, because it really is a super well spent morning!
