    Everything was nice, but I was expecting a little more from the "reindeer sledding" part. It was really short, not sure if it last 10 minutes 🙂. But there are a lot of nice hungry reindeers, that cannot wait for you to feed them. We also saw a shy northern light for a few minutes.

    It was a great evening, things were very well run and you have plenty of time to feed the Reindeer. The food was fantastic and the cultural talk was informative. We were lucky and the lights were out but even if we hadn’t seen the lights it would have been one of the high points of the trip.

    We were looking forward to our nighttime trip to see the reindeer. Unfortunately, the reindeer sled ride was cancelled because there there was not enough snow. Feeding time with the reindeer was great fun and we enjoyed being so close to them. Not long after that we were able to see the Northern Lights. Our 3 course meal was delicious. Service good. Venue warm, rustic, comfortable. While eating the meal we were advised that the Northern Lights had come back for a second show. After the meal we went back to the indoor meeting room and heard about the Sami and their reindeer. It was very interesting and we would have loved to have heard more but the our bus was waiting take us back to Tromsi. We had a great time.
