Check out some of the winter reindeer tours for a great introduction to Sami culture which is so closely tied to these creatures. You can feed shy reindeer, pet them, and even learn to throw a special rope called a lasso around the reindeer's antlers. However, the number one experience is sledging with these gorgeous animals almost like Santa Clause! During the tour, you will stay at the Sami camp in one of the traditional tents called "lavuu." A Sami herding family will treat you to traditional soup named "bidos," narrate Sami legends, and sing mysterious-sounding traditional Sami folk songs called "joiks" around the campfire.

The tours run in the Tromsø area from November to March.
