    Inga was a fantastic guide, she told us so many interesting things about her culture and was really open and lovely. The reindeers were adorable and really hungry, it was really fun to feed them. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough snow on the day we went for the sledding, but the rest of the trip was fun!

    The Sami family was very kind and welcoming. Overall the experience was beautiful: you can be free in the farm to feed reindeers. The lunch was good in a very nice and typical tent. In the end, the storytelling was very interesting and authentic According to our inclination, sledding tour was a bit touristic but is ok

    I travelled with my 11 year old daughter but there were younger children on the tour also. It was a Really lovely experience. Not too far to travel out of tromso, (about 25min). Lots of chance to feed the reindeer and then go on a sled ride. There are several of the traditional Sami building / hut to go and warm up in whenever you need to, and delicious hot chocolate and cookies. Food was also lovely.

    We were a little worried on booking this trip and seeing how popular it was that it would be too touristy. These thoughts were quickly put to rest, with the warm welcome onto the buses and at the Sami village. The site is beautiful and large enough, so that you can spend some quality time, almost as if by yourself, with the wonderful reindeer, whilst also experiencing some of the Sami culture. The cabins with roaring fires and warming food and drink, just adds to the experience. We would definitely recommend a visit, even if your visit to Tromso was meant to take you more off the beaten track. It is wonderfully run by friendly and professional people that have the best interests of the Sami community and the animals themselves at heart.

    A 30 minute drive from tromso and you arrive reindeer experience. The guides are helpful and knowledgeable. You have plenty time to feed the reindeer. The sledding was great fun and the lunch provided was fantastic. The warmth with the fires was great. Learning about the Sami culture was interesting

    We absolutely loved meeting all the reindeers, the food and learning about the Sami culture! The staff were all super lovely. Inga was just the sweetest person and we loved hearing her story and learning about the Sami culture. 10/10 experience!

    Thanks for the trip, we had a 30min sledding ride but 15min is enough for the experience. The reindeer’s was not afraid and happy to come close and eat food from your hands. We had a nice day. But our joik need some more practice.

    The place is amazing, and people are so nice. We had a beautiful time. I highly recommend this activity if you travel to Tromsø, and especially with these guides.

    This was a great choice for an introduction to the rich and fascinating Sami culture. Our host, Lone, was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a very interesting talk that touched on both her people's beliefs and history, as well as the more unsavoury side - namely the ongoing occupation by the Scandinavian countries. The reindeer were amazing animals that we also learned a lot about, and the stew we were served was really nice, too. The only drawback - which we obviously can't fault the organisers for - was that there wasn't much snow, so the sledding part of the trip had to be cancelled. 9f course, given the circumstances, that's the responsible choice. All in all, warmly recommended (or coldly, considering the latitude). Do make time for it if you're in Tromsø!
