It’s a must if you are in Norway . Everyone is very welcoming , friendly and helpful . The transport was smooth . They started on time . Sledging was enjoyable . I was scared of feeding the reindeer but they helped and made sure it was fun for me as it was for others . Dinner is simple and exactly what you need . The Sami culture and explanation was unique to this tour and this is what makes it so amazing !!! The tent stay was scary at first as I was the only one in the tent but I figured it out soon . Breakfast had a lot of variety . Was lucky on the drive back as it was sunny and out the tour ended with lot of knowledge about culture and information about the importance of reindeer herding in Sami culture . Lots of snacks and hot drinks available even overnight . Unbelievable experience. Worth every bit !!

An indescribable experience that cannot be put into words. The Sami are a great, warm-hearted people. After the reindeer sleigh ride we were allowed to feed the animals. Afterwards there was an introduction to the traditions of the Sami culture during dinner. About customs to the different costumes, up to the different songs. Very, very great experience there. The night in the tent will always remain in our memory. The tents are super romantic and cozy. Through the wood stove in the middle of the tent, not cold at all either. However, it has to be refilled every 70 minutes. We then sat comfortably around the campfire and chatted with the others and marveled at the clear starry sky. When we were allowed to see the northern lights dancing for about 3 hours, we were all overjoyed. Breakfast the next day was also delicious and we had the opportunity to admire everything again in daylight (reindeer, landscape)
