Reindeer herding experience
Live a life of the Sami reindeer herders in Europe's last true wilderness. The Sami family herd the reindeer in the tundra, in the middle of the wilderness in Northern Norway. Besides the immersive culture, you will explore and live from the nature that is so pure that you can even drink straight from the stream. You can come alone or with family or friends, but the experience is always intimate and unique with a native Sami family.
A typical day with the Sami
We don't have a daily itinerary for the guest because after all, everything happens by nature's speed as this is a real-life experience and unpredictable things can happen in reindeer herding. But a typical day may look like this:
8 am Wake up & breakfast
10 am Visit the reindeer stock by snowmobiles
2 pm lunch
4 pm Daily tasks such as cutting the firewood, fetching water, food preparations
6 pm Dinner & yoik singing at the lavvu tent
10 pm Observe the sky & hunt the Northern Lights
Every guest is warmly welcome to participate in the daily tasks. In the cabin, there are traditional wooden Sami skiis that guests can use freely while exploring the surroundings. This is a slowdown experience.
