Reindeer sledding evening
Daily departures via scenic fjord and mountain landscape every evening throughout the winter season offer wonderful views and excellent opportunities to witness the majestic Northern Lights. Even though this tour is not focused on hunting the green lights, but it gives a great chance to be a part of the Aurora performance in the night sky. Join us for an authentic Sami culture and reindeer sledding experience at our wilderness center Camp Tamok, a 75-minute scenic drive from downtown Tromso in Northern Norway.
Upon arrival at Camp Tamok, we dress in warm winter clothes and boots and then head off to explore the ancient part of Sami culture and try the oldest form of transport in the north. As our reindeer herd is some distance from our barking huskies, your adventure will start with a short transfer by minibus to our Sami Camp. This fascinating cultural adventure includes reindeer sledding, introduction in lasso throwing, storytelling about the Sami culture and feeding the reindeer (Sami culture & reindeer sledding takes 1,5 hour itself). This is a soft adventure, as we call it, since it is friendly and suitable for all family members even the youngest ones (please evaluate the return time).
After this unforgettable encounter with the indigenous Sami people, you will return to Camp Tamok where we will serve you a hot meal around an open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. After relaxing and warming up, it is time to head back to Tromso and reflect on a memorable experience.
