Reindeer Sledding, Reindeer Feeding, and Chance of Northern Lights

Experience the natural wonder of the Northern Lights on a reindeer sled in the peaceful nature of the North, accompanied by authentic Saami guides. Hear the sounds of the lights, and feed a herd of 300 reindeer in their enclosure.
Northern lights (aurora borealis) illuminate the night sky above a group of reindeer standing in the snow with sleds.

Enjoy the peace and quiet from the nature around as you relax on a sled gently pulled by a reindeer. According to Saami people, the northern lights have a sound. Sit quiet and listen - maybe you can hear it too! The natural wonders can sometimes be predicted but never guaranteed. The lack of urban light pollution allows you to thoroughly enjoy the splendors of the night sky.

After the sledding adventure you can enter the reindeer enclosure and participate in the daily feeding of a herd of 300 reindeer.
Afterwards you can enjoy a traditional hot Sámi meal, see and learn about Sámi artifacts and hear stories. Should the Auroral activity be remarkable we will spend more time outdoors and reduce the cultural part. The camp is established and run by authentic Sámi people with long reindeer-herding traditions.

* If conditions change, we keep the right to amend the duration of the reindeer sledding.

* All animals used for these services are trained for the activity, however, the behavior of animals can be unpredictable and therefore it is essential that all participants follow all given 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 on one sled.

* Alternative: The Reindeer Sledding is subject to snow and if weather conditions don't allow us to run the sled-ride we will offer you a partial refund.
