Full description

Discover a Sámi reindeer camp with this unique tour from Tromsø. Travel to the camp at Breivikeidet to feed the reindeer. Have the chance to see the northern lights and experience eating Bithos (a traditional Sámi dish).

Meet your guide and travel to camp Breivikeidet which is surrounded by mountains. Step off the bus and admire the view of the Lyngen Alps. Follow your guide to the reindeer fence to pet and feed the reindeer. Learn about these animals from your guide.

Spot the dancing Aurora should it be out. It's an excellent place to spot the Aurora in the night sky above your head as there is little artificial light. Continue to an authentic Gamme (traditional Sámi housing). Get cozy as you savor Bithos, which is a meal only reserved for special occasions.

Hear about what life is like in the Arctic for the Sámi people. Listen to a joik (Sámi folk music). Return to Tromsø.

Just beautiful, I can't put it into words. Such lovely animals and our Sami leader explained everything in a humorous and great way. We were looked after very lovingly and my wife, who is vegetarian, also got an extra soup. Thank you for this great stay and for letting us have this experience

A very well organized and loving experience. Feeding the reindeer was a great experience. When the northern lights came, the light on the "paddock" was switched off and we could take pictures and admire them. The animals are delicate and filigree in their way of life. After feeding we got a very tasty stew (a vegetarian variant was also offered). Meanwhile, the camp owner tells us about the Zambian culture in a loving and funny way. It is absolutely recommendable.
