Really loved feeding and stroking the Reindeer. The food was delicious and the Sami experience was fabulous. Although l enjoyed it, it did seem we were left unattended while the others went reindeer sledging, would have been nice if someone had told us to go inside, instead of freezing out in the cold wondering what else we could do. Other than that, it was a good experience.

Once in a lifetime experience! If you come in Tromso you should ABSOLUTELY book this trip! Every single person who works there is polite and helpful especially the lady who owns the land with the reindeers! She will teach you everything about Sami people, you will eat the most delicious soup, feed and pet the reindeers! Don’t forget to try reindeer sledding! You won’t regret it we promise!

We've been a little bit sceptical with the experience upfront. However, when we went to the camp, it was really fun. Had some time to spend with the reindeers. The feeding was fun. Really, reindeers have different personalities and you could see that. The luch was great and we've got to know new things about sami. I'd say really worth the time and price.
