On this tour you can join in the daily feeding of a herd of 300 reindeer! Enjoy untouched Arctic nature around you as you marvel at the Lyngen Alps and learn more about the Sami culture and reindeer.

You will be picked up outside Radisson Blu Hotel in Tromsø - look out for your guide wearing a blue Luhkka (poncho). From there we will have 45-minute bus ride to Breivikeidet.

On the way to our reindeer enclousure you will see mountains, fjords, untouched nature, and all this before you arrive at your destination. On arrival, you will be greeted by your Sami guide who will guide you into the reindeer fence for the feeding. Learn more about the amazing animals as you enjoy the scenery of the Lyngen Alps.

After the reindeers are well fed , it's your turn to have dinner. You will head into the Gamme for a hot drink and warm tasty Bidos - a traditional Sami dish. Inside the hut your guide will tell you more about life in the Arctic, the Sami history and culture, and will show you a collection of Sami artifacts and clothing.

The company Tromsø Lapland is established by authentic Saami people with long reindeer herding traditions and have the longest experience of running authentic Saami experience and culture tours in Tromsø.
