This was one of the most amazing experience I have ever had. The guides were very knowledgable and knew exactly where to go and stop for the best chance to see the lights. We were incredibly lucky that the lights were so active the night we went and the guides ‘chased’ them ensuring we had plenty of opportunities to see them & take pictures. The guide took outstanding pictures and emailed them to me a few days after the tour and helped us get the best possible pictures on our phones. At the end of the night we had hotdogs and marshmallows by the campfire which was nice. They also provided plenty of drinks/snacks along the way and polar suits which meant we stayed warm. The guides were lovely and there was a good atmosphere on the bus with plenty of music/chatting and it was comfortable. Couldn’t recommend enough especially for the price compared to others!
Altogether this trip is well organized, the meeting point is easy to find, the guide and Sami hosts are nice and friendly. Though no sledding due to lack of snow, I still had a great time feeding these reindeers, other than the reindeers, the ranch is surrounded by beautiful mountains and fjords which were worth taking pictures, and don’t forget to taste the reindeer soup, it is delicious. In one word, I strongly recommend this tour to you.
Alejandro was very nice. He welcomed us and answered all our questions. The dog sledding was an amazing experience, a must-do if you are staying in Tromsø ! The meal was good with some raindeer soup and also a vegetarian meal (you should ask for it during the booking). We had time to cuddle the dogs and the puppies ☺ (Also one of us forgot his gloves there and they brought them back to the center the morning after, which was very nice)
Very nice experience! It was possible to walk together with reindeers, feed them, pet them and observe them in the place they live. It was also possible to sit inside at the fire and warm yourself, whenever you got cold. Fantastic food and warm drinks were available as well. I appreciated the story telling about sami history and culture. And the “joiking” at the end made me even cry a little! Highly recommend!
We did see the northern lights, and we could not go dog-sledding due to lack of snow. But no human can do anything about that... Thanks to kind and knowledgeable staff, we still had a great night out. Sitting by the fireside, meeting the huskies (such a wild but cuddly bunch!) and having a nice dinner in the "gamme" - a really good experience. Also, well-arranged transport from downtown Tromsø and back.
