    An absolutely incredible experience, every member of staff went above and beyond to make the experience memorable. The staff were incredibly attentive and really took my coeliac disease into account and ensured I could eat safely. They took excellent care of ensuring that every visitor was looked after, and the reindeer were truly respected, understood and cared for. The addition of the appearance of the northern lights making a spectacular display ensured that the evening was wonderful. The folklore of the Sami people told around the fire was charming and informative and an incredible addition and end to a most fantastic evening. It is not to be missed.

    It was exiting to get so near by the reindeer. Five years ago, I have seen reindeers out in the mounting by distance and her you get opportunity to come near by this beautiful animals. I and enjoy this and thanks for this staying. Recommends to visit with warm heart

    It was very fun to feed the reindeers, but we thought the sledding was supposed to last longer and that the reindeers would walk faster or run. The sleds were chained together and the guide walked in the front. The food was good, especially the stew was great. The cake was ok, but I wished they’d offered coffee to go with the dessert. The main guide, Elisabeth, did a great job talking about the Sami culture, but I wished she’d said more about how the Sami people were treated and their fight towards recognition. We were a bit surprised that the group was so large, so if you’d prefer a more intimate tour, you should choose one with smaller groups.
