Reindeer Sledding and Northern Lights in Tromsø Lapland

By Tromsø Lapland AS

  • Be pulled by eager reindeer on a sled through the snowy wilderness
  • See the Northern Lights dancing above your head while swooshing along
  • Enjoy a traditional Sami meal and hear Sami joik

Experience the crackling snow against a clear night-time sky printed with green waves from the Northern Lights on a sled gently pulled by a reindeer!

What to expect?

Enjoy the peaceful nature around as you relax on a sled gently pulled by a reindeer. Imagine, with some luck you might soon witness the Aurora dancing above you while sitting on a sled behind furry reindeer-bum. According to Saami people, the northern lights have a sound. Sit quiet and listen - maybe you can hear it too?

These natural wonders can sometimes be predicted, but never guaranteed. The lack of urban light pollution gives you the best of chances to thoroughly enjoy the splendors of the night sky.

After the sledding adventure you can enjoy a traditional hot Saami meal, see and learn about Saami artifacts and hear stories and joik (traditional Saami chanting). The camp is established and run by authentic Saami people with long reindeer-herding traditions. By taking part in this evening excursion we hope you will be charmed by the fascinating reindeer and find that you love our gentle but curious creatures just like we do - Our true hero in the Arctic.

Please note:

* 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 when there is not enough snow we offer Reindeer Feeding and Saami Culture instead
