Follow the reindeer from plain to coast! Experience this unique once in a lifetime experience of the Sami reindeer herders when they migrate the reindeer from inland areas to summer pastures on the coast of Northern Norway. Ignore the clock and join this amazing 6-day adventure! You will travel with a Sami family on snowmobiles and sleep in traditional and warm “lavvu” tents. Due to herding traditions, this adventure is only available in April/May. We take only small groups of 1- 6 persons. We are booking now for Spring 2018.
Travelers will join an indigenous Sami family which have practised the reindeer migration for hundreds of years in Tundra. Travelers will sleep together with their hosts in tents and all the food is local and traditional Sami food. This trip has no waste as everything that you bring to Tundra needs to be brought back. Travelers will not have a shower and they will use a mobile toilet.
