Reindeer Sledding Daytime - Excl. Transport

Get close to the majestic and festive creatures and learn about the people that have been herding them for centuries. Come on this reindeer sledding experience and meet the indigenous Sami people as you learn about their culture and interact with and feed their reindeer.

Note: This option does not include bus transportation. Please arrive at Camp Tamok, 15 minutes prior to the start of the activity.

Upon arrival at Camp Tamok, we will first provide warm winter clothes and other required gear for this reindeer sledding activity. As our reindeer herd is some distance away from our barking huskies, this activity will start with a short transfer by minibus. 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, your adventure at Camp Tamok has come to an end.
