Experience the lifestyle of the Sami people on this combo tour of reindeer sledding and Northern Lights hunting, where you will spend the night sleeping under the stars of the Arctic. Any enthusiast of Scandinavian culture and nature should not let this opportunity pass them by.
After getting picked up at the departure location in Tromsø, you will head on to the scenic landscapes of the Lyngen district. This mountainous area is home to magnificent coastal sceneries and idyllic villages, as well as its roaming resident reindeer.
Reindeer sledding is the oldest method of transportation in northern Norway, dating back to the northernmost indigenous people of Europe, the Sami. Their culture has included reindeer herding for aeons, and in many regions of the Nordic countries today, the activity is legally reserved to belonging exclusively to them.
You will get up-close and personal with these beautiful animals as you allow them to take you flying across the snowy plains in the valley. Your expert guides will inform you of the ancient lifestyles of these reindeer herders, as you explore the land in the same way they have for centuries.
At the end of your day, you will spend the night in a traditional Sami tent known as Lavvu. Since you are located a good distance from the bright lights of the city, you can thoroughly enjoy the splendours of the night sky.
This tour includes a lookout for the Northern Lights, which are frequently known to grace this particular area with their presence. Formed when the magnetosphere gets disturbed by trajectories of solar winds, the aurora borealis are natural phenomena that can sometimes be predicted but never guaranteed.
Be that as it may, if they decide to show on the eve of your adventure, you will be able to fully bask in their glory because of the lack of urban light pollution. Allow yourself to become one with nature and replenish your mind and soul on your overnight excursion.
