Reindeer Feeding and Sami Culture

NOK 1090 per person

After a 25-minute drive from the city centre, you will visit their camp and have a chance to feed the herd of around 200 wild reindeer who will swarm all around and some will even eat from your hands. The reindeer and the Sami have been living and working on this land for centuries and they have only recently invited guests to be part of their daily life.

You will then be invited inside a gamme (a traditional sami hut) where you will be served warm drinks and a traditional Sami meal will be cooked over the fire (vegetarian option available).

After lunch you will be invited into a lavuu (Sami tent) and gather round the fire to listen to stories about Sami culture and how it is to be a reindeer herder. The Sami guide will also perform a joik (traditional Sami song) for the guests.

Adults: 1,090 NOK | Children (6-12):  690 NOK | Children under 6: FREE
