Spend a day with the indigenous people and try the oldest form of transport in the north! Keen to meet the indigenous Sami people, hear their stories and have a close-up encounter with their reindeer? Join us for an authentic experience at our wilderness centre Camp Tamok, a 90-minute scenic drive from downtown Tromsø in Northern Norway.
The daytime departure offers wonderful views via scenic fjord and mountain landscape.
Upon arrival at Camp Tamok, we dress in warm winter clothes and boots and then head off to explore the ancient part of Sami culture and try the oldest form of transport in the north. As our reindeer herd is some distance from our barking huskies, your adventure will start with a short transfer by minibus to our Sami Camp. This fascinating cultural adventure includes reindeer sledding, an introduction to lasso throwing, storytelling about the Sami culture and feeding the reindeer.
After this memorable encounter with the indigenous Sami people, you will return to Camp Tamok where we will serve you a hot meal around an open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. After relaxing and warming up, it is time to head back to Tromsø and reflect on a memorable experience.
Meeting place: Samuel Arnesens gate 7, Tromsø
At Camp Tamok, we will provide warm winter clothing - winter overall suits, boots, hat and mittens. However, we recommend dressing in warm winter clothing and in layers so you can adjust your clothing to the weather
Hot meal included
