Reindeer sledding is the oldest form of transport in the north, and an ancient part of Sami culture. People of all ages can participate on this very “soft” adventure.
This cultural adventure includes trying lasso-throwing, the way the Sami people still today catch their reindeers when they are rounded up for marking or slaughter. Also, you will learn about Sami culture and history.
You will be driving in pairs, with one sled for each reindeer. To conclude this excursion, you will be served a hot meal. Daytime trips give you an amazing view of the wild mountains in the area, and evening trips in the period November - March will give you a good chance to experience the Northern Lights.
