    we had a great day at the camp of the seeds! the people were super nice just like the reindeer! They are super trusting and the reindeer sleigh ride was great.. but don't expect it to go through nature without a route.. the path is in the camp and east is a guided loop! all in all a great experience!

    Great experience getting to know the reindeerherd and feeding them with the provided chuck. The sled driving on the two-seat sleds for 10 minutes within the confines of the area was enough for us and the landscape is very beatiful. We also very much enjoyed being flexible how to spend the time in the camp and the explanations around Sami culture was also very interesting.

    We went on this trip before a planned Hurtigruten trip down the Norwegian coast but we all agreed this was the best part - beautiful scenery, feeding over 300 reindeer, really interesting learning about the Sami culture, very relaxing reindeer sled, and very atmospheric lunch in a hut/lavvu with open fire- highly memorable and recommended for all ages - there were young children and my dad who is 80!
