Reindeer Camp Dinner with Chance of Northern Lights in Tromso
From US$181.76
Overview
Visting a lavvu (traditional temporary Sámi dwelling) and chatting with reindeer herders is a rare experience. This tour from Tromsø takes you to a reindeer camp to meet the herders and their animals and enjoy a home-cooked meal inside a cozy lavvu. Learn about the culture of the indigenous Sámi people, and spot the magical Northern Lights. Roundtrip transportation from Tromsø is included.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with an evening pickup from the center of Tromsø and a short journey to the reindeer camp.

Upon arrival, meet your Sámi guide and their reindeer. Under their supervision, you can take the opportunity to feed the reindeer. Afterward, head into the lavvu (tent) for a delicious three-course dinner. Over your meal, your guide introduces you to the culture and history of the Sámi, the indigenous people of northern Europe, and demonstrates the joik, traditional form of song.

Afterward, head outside to look for the Northern Lights—far from the light pollution of the city, you are in a prime viewing spot. After experiencing this magical light show, bid your hosts farewell and jump back into the vehicle for the return trip to Tromsø. Your tour concludes with a late evening drop-off back at the departure point.
