About this experience

Reindeer herding is a critical component of Sami culture. Northern Norway is a small part of the Sapmi nation, spanning Sweden, Finland, and Russia. This area, commonly called Lappland, is the area the reindeer roam with their herders in tow. On this day tour, you’ll learn about the Sapmi nation, the Sami culture, and the way of life the reindeer herders lead. We’ll listen in the hut while the fire roars and a warm reindeer stew will be served along with coffee for those who want to try it. When we head out into the enclosure, everything will be explained, including how to behave with the reindeer, and there will be lots of opportunities to take photos and videos. This is an incredible experience, and the opportunity to get up close and personal with these fascinating animals shouldn’t be overlooked.
