Join Sami guides for an unforgettable reindeer experience. The reindeer and the Sami have been living and working on this land for centuries and they have only recently invited guests to be part of their daily life.
After a 30-minute drive from the city centre, you will visit their camp and have a chance to feed the herd of around 200 reindeer who will swarm all around and some will even eat from your hands.
You will then be invited inside a gamme (a traditional Sami hut) where you will be served warm drinks and a traditional Sami meal will be cooked over the fire.
After lunch, you will be invited into a lavvo (Sami herdsmen tent) and gather round the fire to listen to stories about Sami culture and how it is to be a reindeer herder. The Sami guide will also perform a joik (traditional Sami song) for the guests.
