About Tromso Arctic Reindeer
Tromsø Arctic Reindeer Experience is a complete Sami Reindeer experience carried out by traditional Sami Reindeer Herders within a 30 minute drive of Tromsø. We offer a number of packages but with all you will be hosted by Reindeer herders who will show and teach you about Reindeer herding and Sami culture. We have thousands of reindeer in the mountains and a herd of around 200 Reindeer at the camp so you are guaranteed to experience the joy of being close to these wonderful creatures, the feeling of coming into a warm lavvu (Sami tent) and the sounds of the traditional joik (Sami singing). This is a ritual which for us is an important way of life and it is our pleasure and aim to let you feel and experience it. We look forward to welcoming you.

The guide was just fantastic and gave so many interesting information about Sami culture. I only wish we would have had more time for additional questions and some extra joiks! Thanks for a great day! (Visited 3rd March 2021)

I didn’t expect it to be so beautiful! It really made my day! When we got to the reindeers’ farm, two beautiful Sami ladies dressed in their traditional clothes warmly welcomed us. We got invited into a Sami tent to warm up by the fire. Both ladies sang to us unique Sami songs. We were served hot drinks, traditional food and we enjoyed a long sleighing trip. We fed the reindeers which was-for me-the best part. It was one of the most beautiful days in my life! I just wanted to go every day :)

It was such an amazing experience, from start to finish. First of all - the reindeers were adorable and totally made our day and trip! It was also really interesting to see and learn about sami culture. We were lucky enough to be there on the actual "Sami peoples day" and so it felt really special to be there. The owners and guides were really friendly and open to questions. I would recommend this day-trip to anyone who visits Tromsø!

Very nice experience. It as well organized and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The reindeer were fun to feed although one was a little aggressive, but he didn’t hurt me. The reindeer stew was delicious and there were plenty of warm drinks and cookies. Remember to bundle up and wear warm shoes!
