AI69: 2.5 hours Sami Reindeer sled tour looking for the Northern Lights at Sorrisniva

Have a close encounter with reindeer and the Sami culture in the evening – a perfect way to combine the visit with a chance to see the Northern Lights. You will meet your guide at Sorrisniva’s reception desk, dress warmly as needed, and then head out for a peaceful ride through the forest. As your traditional sled creaks through the trees, keep an eye out on the sky above for the northern lights.

At the midpoint of the tour, you will arrive at a “lavvo” – a traditional Sami tent, and spend some time inside around a fire, warming up with a hot drink and learning about old traditions and the Sami culture from your guide. And on the way back… take the reins and hang on, as the reindeer return along the path back to Sorrisniva. They know the way, but it’s up to you to stop them at the end!

The tour includes transport between Sorrisniva and Alta city center, a reindeer sled ride, conversation and Sami cultural experiences, coffee, cake and snacks, warm clothing as needed (including warm shoes, hat, gloves). Guests will ride 2-per-sled, side by side.
