Reindeer & Northern Lights

DAY 5

Reindeer sledge

You will be picked up in the centre of Tromso for an adventurous trip to the exotic wilderness of the Tamok Valley. Due to the geographical location the climate is drier and colder than in Tromso, thus offering a maximum chance of seeing the amazing Northern Lights. You will drive a reindeer sled, try lasso-throwing and learn about Sami culture.

The Northern Lights reindeer sledge trip includes reindeer sledding activity, transfers, a traditional hot meal, meeting the indigenous Sami people, and listening to their stories. Also included: Insulated body suit, warm shoes, mittens & headwear. English speaking guide.

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.

    Candan, Turkey

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.
