Also sleigh ride
Feb 2020 • Couples
What a great experience! We so enjoyed the sleigh ride and did this at night time. Then reindeer feeding and a lovely time interacting with the reindeer and taking to Sara. The talk by Sara about her Sami way of life , her clothing and its benefits and messages was enlightening and I lived her singing!

Spent a wonderful morning. The guides are friendly, helpful, courteous and informative.
It was a pleasure to sled in this exquisite setting. The reindeer free from their natural winter hardships enjoyed being fed, as did we.
The 'joiker' was both talented and evocative.

Sami Culture and Reindeer feeding
Nov 2018 • Friends
We only booked the day before and had a brilliant time with Ken picking us up. There was only 6 in the group so a nice small group and the whole day was fantastic with great information and detail of the Sami lifestyle and culture, including lunch and a joik sang to us, which was really beautiful. The trip passed so quickly and the whole team were marvelous which was topped off with Ken taking the time to talk to us the whole drive back, so a big thank you for the day and the memories.

Reindeer sledging, Reindeer feeding and Sami Culture introduction

Excellent experience in the dark night.
On the top off it all - The northern Lights.
Stories about the sami culture told with humour.
The reindeer stew tasted fantastic.

We felt that since you got to experience northern lights, fantastic food, humorous storytelling and an excellent experience we should have received 5 stars but oh well, hopefully you will come back again and we can impress you some more to receive a 5 star review! ;-)

Unforgettable and unmissable experience
Nov 2018 • Couples
We had a tremendous time on the Sami Experience with Tromso Lapland.

Collection from the hotel by Ken our Sami guide who drove us for 45 mins through the snow to their winter camp. Warm clothes were offered and then we walked to the reindeer enclosure. The reindeer were very enthusiastic and the small group of us had plenty of time with the them. Afterwards we had lunch and stories in the Sami tent. Finally a 45 min drive back to the hotel.

We had compared several reindeer trips before choosing Tromso Lapland. How pleased we were with our choice! Other groups were so much larger (40+) compared to only 8 in our group - a minibus full maximum. This made for a far more personal experience and more time to chat to the Sami people.

Do not miss this experience!

We are thrilled to hear you are happy with your decision to book with us. Yes, compared to our competitors, we offer a much more intimate and small group setting. Our Sami guides truly go above and beyond to give each of our guests a unique and memorable experience. So thanks for coming!

Fantastic experience
Nov 2018 • Couples
We had initially planned to do an overnight stay with reindeer sledding on the 23/11/18 but unfortunately due to a lack of snow and other activities getting moved around this was not available, but tromso lapland very kindly offered to alter our activity to reindeer feeding with a hot meal and travel to and from the camp. We left in the evening for a bus journey to the camp where the reindeer stay and had the wonderful experience of meeting the reindeer and feeding them. It was very easy to tell the difference between the personalities of the reindeer and was a really enjoyable experience. We then had a lovely dinner of reindeer stew and hot drinks in a warm tent whilst being told about the Sami history and culture. Fantastic experience to get up close and personal with reindeer as well as learn about a really interesting culture from our guide Ken, very relaxed and enjoyable and would definitely recommend.

No snow for sledding but a great trip nevertheless. Our guide Johnny was excellent, fun and engaging and his overview of Sami history and culture made us want to know more. Highly recommended. Johnny, if you are going to start to organise fishing let me know and I will be there is a heartbeat!
