Reindeer sledding
NOK 1495

Join an authentic Sami guide, who comes from a Sami family with long reindeer herding traditions. Enjoy an unforgettable experience of pure reindeer sledding (3 km) and Sami culture.


We would like to give you the opportunity to become better acquainted with the Sami culture and join a pleasant and fun Reindeer Sledding in beautiful North Norwegian nature.


The Sami are the indigenous people of the North and our Sami guide would like you to get to know his culture better, both past, present and future, through tasting some typical Sami food, seeing and learning about Sami artifacts and hearing stories and the joik (traditional Sami song).


The Reindeer Sledding is an important part of the experience as the oldest known form of transport in the north and central part of the Sami culture. The sledding takes place as a "raid" where each reindeer and sled are bound together in a long row with the lead reindeer in the front.


By taking part in this daytime excursion we hope you will be charmed by the fascinating reindeer and find you love our gentle but curious and furry creatures just like we do - Our true hero in the Arctic
