Crackling snow and clear night-time sky covered with green waves from the Northern Lights - this genuine winter adventure is what you'll enjoy in this tour!

Relax on a sled softly towed by reindeer while taking in the peace and quiet of the nature. Imagine sitting on a sled behind a fluffy reindeer and witnessing the Aurora dance above you! 

The northern lights, according to the Saami people, have a sound. Sit quietly and listen; perhaps you can hear it as well! Natural wonders can be foreseen, but they are never guaranteed. Because there is no urban light pollution, you can fully appreciate the beauty of the night sky. 

After the sledding excursion, you can visit the reindeer enclosure and help to feed a herd of 300 reindeer.

Following that, you can enjoy in a typical warm Saami supper, view and learn about Saami artifacts, and listen to fascinating stories. Authentic Saami people with extensive reindeer-herding traditions founded and run the camp. We hope that by participating in our evening expedition, you will be enchanted by the amazing reindeer and discover that you, too, adore our kind yet curious creatures - our true Arctic heros.
