Overnight Reindeer Sledding and Northern Lights – Tromsø Lapland

Date: Saturday 9 dec 2017 - Monday 30 Apr 2018 Show map

Try reindeer sledding, the oldest means of transportation in the north, with authentic Sami guides from the small family-run company Tromsø Lapland and stay with us for the night in a traditional Sami tent.

This cultural adventure includes approximately 20-30-minutes of reindeer sledding, before you can enjoy a hot meal served in our lavvo-hut while listening to stories about the Sami culture and history. The location has little artificial lighting and excellent conditions to hunt for the Northern Lights. Instead of heading back to the city centre where you might miss a late night dance from the Aurora, stay at this good location in a traditional Sami tent, known as lavvo, and sleep on reindeer hides in winter-insulated sleeping bags. Since you are located a good distance from the bright lights of the city, you can thoroughly enjoy the splendours of the night sky. Allow yourself to become one with nature and replenish your mind and soul on your overnight excursion.
After breakfast the next day you are transferred back to the city.
