Reindeer sledding by Trym Ivar Bergsmo, Nordnorsk Reiseliv

Fun for the whole family!


Reindeer sledding

The arctic wilderness is the home of the Sami people and their reindeer herds. For 5000 years, their society has blossomed in a place where others find it hard to survive.
Discover their ancient culture and let your hosts show you their world. Listen to stories and joik-songs around a campfire and feel the thrill of standing in a herd of wild reindeer that eat from your hands.
Go on a reindeer sledding ride (30 -35 mins) near the sea with the mountains in the background. All the reindeer at the camp live wild for most of the year and are only at the camp for a few months over winter to protect them from predators and harsh winter conditions.
Connect to the soul of the Arctic and its indigenous people!

The trip includes: Reindeer sledding activity (30-35 mins), a traditional hot meal, transfers from/to Tromso. Thermal suits on request.
What to bring: Comfortable shoes, warm undergarments, warm and windproof clothing.

Enjoy Arctic sailing in Tromso area


Arctic Sailing

Explore the Arctic fjords on-board a comfortable catamaran, fish for lunch at a favourite fishing spot, and prepare a fresh, home-made meal on-board. Cruising the Arctic fjords are breath-taking and the guides are passionate about creating an epic day out at sea for those wanting to witness memorable views, try fishing and spot wildlife.
There is so much life in the fjords in the wintertime where seabirds, eagles, seals, and schools of fish gather to feed and stay alive during the rough, and dark winter months.
Join a simply unforgettable day in the Arctic fjords!

The trip includes a light hot meal, warm safety clothing & fishing equipment.

Enjoy a whale watching tour in Tromso by Brim Explorer

What our customers say:

  • On behalf of the group I would like to thank you and your colleagues for organizing our wonderful tour of Norway. Everything went very well including the weather, which was spectacular. We enjoyed all the hotels, the central locations you chose and the amenities, especially the lavish breakfasts. Three extra days in Oslo allowed us to tour the city at our leisure and to enjoy more of the important sights including the newly opened National Museum. The Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing and made much easier by using your recommended porterage service between hotels in Oslo and Bergen. Both the train journeys and the boat trip were spectacular, and combined with a night in the beautiful Kviknes Hotel made for an unforgettable two days. We were very impressed by the Hurtigruten cruise, particularly the way they combined a working ship with a cruise ship, the comfortable accommodations, the food and service. It was fascinating to visit all the various ports, islands and fjords and the two included tours were excellent and informative. In the end we were glad to have the extra night in Kirkenes, to visit their lovely museum and take a trip to the Russian border. It was a good way to end the tour. Again, thank for staying with us through 2 years of pandemic postponements and changes. We certainly will recommend Fjord Travel in the future.

  • 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.

    Alison, United States

  • 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.
