Sami Reindeer Feeding with Feeding & Culture
After a 30-minute drive from the city centre, you will visit their camp and have a chance to feed the herd of around 200 reindeer who will swarm all around and some will even eat from your hands.
You will then be invited inside a gamme (a traditional Sami hut) where you will be served warm drinks and a traditional Sami meal will be cooked over the fire.
After lunch, you will be invited into a lavvo (Sami herdsmen tent) and gather round the fire to listen to stories about Sami culture and how it is to be a reindeer herder. The Sami guide will also perform a joik (traditional Sami song) for the guests.
