This cultural trip includes 30 minutes of reindeer sledding, followed by reindeer feeding in a herd of 300 reindeer, before enjoying a hot supper served in our lavvo while listening to stories about Saami culture and history. 

There is very little artificial lighting at this location, which makes it ideal for searching for the northern lights. Stay in a traditional Saami tent, known as lavvo, and sleep on reindeer hides in winter-insulated sleeping bags instead of returning to the city center, where you might miss a late night dance of the aurora. 

You can truly enjoy the splendors of the night sky because you are placed far from the city's bright lights.

On your overnight journey, allow yourself to become connected with nature and recharge your mind and soul. 

The next day, after breakfast, you will be transferred back to the city (around 10:00 a.m.), and you will return to the hotel at 11:00 a.m.
