About
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.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had an amazing time meeting and feeding the reindeer. We were lucky enough for a large amount of them to come down to the feeding area even though the snow storm was quite heavy. Learning about Sami culture after the feeding was also amazing, so interesting and our guide Daniel was so lovely and funny! Such a great experience, highly recommend

AMAZING. That’s truly all I can say. I’m just getting around to writing my review. The reindeer farm is beautiful of course but my review goes out to the staff. They truly went above and beyond when my now fiancée reached out to them to propose. They coordinated everything seamlessly and did a great job keeping it a secret (from me). They were able to set us up with an individual sled and private place for us to have the dinner. I couldn’t have imagine anything more perfect until the northern lights came out. Thank you to Marja, Sara, Manon, and Edwina for everything!

What a great trip! Loved every minute of it. Learnt so much about the Sami way of life. The lunch was tasty and feeding the reindeer was so enjoyable. We couldn’t do the sledding element of our trip as the ground was too icy, but we were refunded promptly for that, but it certainly didn’t detract from our visit. Really, really enjoyable day.

such a beautiful experience! even though it was a big group of people in a big bus, it always felt personal and very chilled. the staff and the Sami people were super friendly and always up for a chat. we could ask all out questions and had really nice conversations with them. we spent quite some time feeding the reindeers and were able to walk around the land as far as we wanted. The traditional reindeer stew for lunch was delicious and the hot chocolate as well. the story telling from the Sami man was so sweet and funny. overall a very beautiful, fun and happy experience. was absolutely worth the money and i would totally recommend it to anyone visiting Tromsø during this time of the year.

Reviews are accurate in their description of the days events.

Clean bus picks you up on time. Very organized with pleasant staff. Feed the reindeer, take a ride in a reindeer sled with a warm reindeer "blanket", hot chocolate and cookies in a tent with fire anytime you like, Reindeer stew for lunch and a talk from one of the Sami who gave a talk about their culture and would answer any question you have. We had great weather and I can imagine how a different scenario could affect the day. Also website show they were fully booked for our only availability but after I sent an email they accommodated us! Highly recommended.

A magical sight to see so many reindeer clustered together. A truly unique and absolutely ahh-mazing experience to be in such close contact with the reindeer and to be able to feed them. They are so adorable and cute! Some would even try and get your attention by touching you with their hoof so that you would turn around and feed them. The two lovely Sami ladies were fabulous and they enlightened us with some facts about the Sami culture. Although the sleigh ride had to be canceled due to icy conditions, we had a wonderful time altogether!

There is a large terrain with the reindeer where you can walk and feed them from the bucket. The problem with our tour was that at that time the terrain was like a lake of melted snow with reindeer poop floating everywhere.
Our shoes soaked and we spent two more hours in the tent, having a meal and listening the story of a Sami lady.
We were cold despite the fire and my son got a fever after this trip.
We were also smelling like smoke after sitting all this time inside the tent with a fire.
The meal did not taste us.
The best part of this trip for me were the stories told by the Sami lady.
Of course reindeers are interesting as well, but they don’t like cuddles, and they are quite insistent when it comes to food;)
But overall it was a good experience ;)

Dear Malgorzata, Thank you for being our guest in Tromsø! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed learning more about the Sami culture with us. Spring is indeed quite an interesting time in the Arctic, and unfortunately with the climate change the weather has become unpredictable. We do however have unlimited hot chocolate to keep you warm on the tour! ☕️ Thank you again for visiting us, and welcome back to Tromsø Arctic Reindeer 🦌

Perfect end to our trip. Came here on our last night. Very peaceful and serene setting. Little sled ride and reindeer feed. The tents with the campfires were cosy and the 3 course dinner was wonderful. Very well organised. The Sami woman sang happy birthday to me and gave me a beautiful gift. Loved hearing their stories and traditions around the campfire.
