Reindeer herder experienceShow map
A day trip to visit a reindeer herder. You will spend the day with a Sámi reindeer herder and his flock and experience their daily work with the reindeers in their natural environment. You will be picked up by the herder with his snow mobile and taken to the herd.
Here you will get the opportunity to get close to the animals and to get a rare insight into the daily life of a Sámi reindeer herder. This is a rare access to the Sámi culture and way of living, in addition to the breathtaking nature experiences you can expect in the Arctic north.
In Turgleder we benefit from an extensive network that helps us create and organize authentic Sámi experiences. We cooperate successfully with Sámi reindeer herders and Sámi art and handcraft workers. This cooperation opens a rare access to the Sámi culture and way of living, in addition to the breathtaking nature experiences you can expect in the Arctic north.
If you like to join us for a longer adventure we can recommend our "Sami reindeer spring migration" trip. This trip got honored as one of the World's Best Guided Expeditions / "Tour of a Lifetime" by National Geographic Travel in 2014. :)
The Rough Guide has also honored our trip as one of "Top 20 animal encounters" and it is mentioned in Rough Guides-book ”Clean Breaks – 500 new ways to see the world” from 2009.
