    It was a super super nice experience!! The Sami people at camp were amazing, especially Luna, and they shared so much about their own history, way of living, beliefs, and on Sami National Day too! We were truly so lucky. The reindeer were incredibly nice, even pushy sometimes to get to food - completely excited about us feeding them, so super super nice. The tents were ready for us to warm up (which we all appreciated, not because it was so cold but because it was very windy and rainy). The sleigh ride was comfortable, even though we were in difficult weather, and the meal afterwards was delicious. I would recommend it all around - I feel like I had the best morning and I learned so much, and even the kid in our group had fun!

    It was such a nice day and weather. We get to see a huge number of reindeers, feed them and ride in the sleigh! Also get to taste a warm lunch and hot coco and cookies. Just make sure you wear good boots as its gets very cold inside the tent and on land! Highly recommend it!!!

    Weather was unseasonably warm and was raining really heavy but the interactive experience with the reindeer over 300 in well a large open well kept conditions was amazing the herd totals a few thousand but most are in the mountains. The talk on Sami culture was educational and the family were really caring about the herd and there culture, the food was good and warm drinks were unlimited if visiting Tromso would really recommend this trip
