Northern Lights & Reindeer Sledding

Crackling snow and clear night-time sky illuminated by the green waves from the Northern Lights enjoyed from a sled being gently pulled by a reindeer is a genuine winter adventure, which we will do our best to give you on this tour.

We are proud to offer you the opportunity to become better acquainted with the Sami culture and join a pleasant and fun Reindeer Sledding adventure in the beautiful North Norwegian nature. The Sami are the indigenous people of the north. Our Sami guide wants you to get to know his culture better – the past, present and future – through tasting some typical Sami food, seeing and learning about Sami artifacts and hearing storytelling and joik (traditional Sami song).

According to Sami people, the Northern Lights have a sound. Sit quietly and listen – maybe you can hear it too! This natural wonder can sometimes be predicted but never guaranteed. The lack of urban light pollution allows you to thoroughly enjoy the splendours of the night sky.

As the oldest known form of transport in the north and a central part of the Sami culture, the Reindeer Sledding forms an important part of the experience. By taking part in this evening excursion, you will also get up-close and personal with our charming animals as you help us feed the reindeer calves that are ready to be domesticated. We hope you will be charmed by the fascinating reindeer and love our gentle but curious and furry animals as much as we do. The reindeer is our true hero in the Arctic.

* If conditions change, we reserve the right to amend the duration of the reindeer sledding. * All animals used for these services are trained for the activity. However, the behaviour of animals can be unpredictable and therefore it is essential that all participants follow all instructions for their safety, and the safety of others.

* The sledding takes place as a “raid” where each reindeer and sled are bound together in a long row with the lead reindeer in the front.

* Sleds are shared, two participants per sled.
