This tour is conducted by Tromsø Lapland. We would like to invite you to visit our Sámi camp and join us for a family-friendly reindeer interaction tour surrounded by stunning scenery and the famous Lyngen Alp mountains.
You will participate in the daily feeding session of the cutest herd of reindeer at our camp, and here you will have plenty of time to get up-close and personal with our charming creatures.
You will also be welcomed into our lavvu (Sami tent) to warm up when needed and there you will be served a range of hot beverages to drink (coffee, tea, chocolate) and a hot meal for lunch.
Our expert guide will tell you about our life with reindeer and show you some treasures from our culture. If you are lucky they might even share some secrets of how to survive life in an extreme Arctic nature.
