Reindeer sled excursion

an amazing adventure for outdoor enthusiasts that look for a truly traditional Sámi activity
Nils Torbjörn Nutti, owner, 2022

Handle and drive your own reindeer and sled along an approximately 10 km long trail through the vast and gorgeous winter landscape of Sápmi. This is an amazing hands-on eco adventure for outdoor enthusiasts that look for a truly traditional Sámi activity.

The reindeer sledding guide takes you via a short minibus transfer the Sautosjohka reindeer enclosures where you will meet todays travel company, the reindeer. Your guide will offer detailed instruction on handling and driving the sleds before you are ready to embark on a trip of your lifetime.
It is a pacey tour, with you being in full control of your own reindeer, but also relaxing so you can enjoy animals and nature along the way. After some time of active reindeer sled driving, we arrive to a nice spot where the guide prepares a classical and tasty lunch. A traditional reindeer herder lunch is served, namely suovas. It is smoked reindeer meat fried over open flames, and served on gáhkku-bread with a dash of lingonberry jam. We also sip a cup of freshly boiled coffee around the crackling outdoor fire.
