This is a unique and intriguing experience amid breathtaking scenery. The Sami family that operates Boazo Sami Siida will guide you along through unforgettable events that highlight their past and present culture. You will meet reindeer, drive your own reindeer sled, and hear stories of the old days and joiking, the special singing that is a cornerstone of Sami culture. After the sled ride, you will warm up by the fire in a traditional Sami tent, or "lavvo", and enjoy hot coffee, tasty cake and other small snacks.
The tour includes transport between the Sami Siida and Alta city center, a short reindeer sled ride, conversation and Sami cultural experiences, coffee, cake and snacks, warm clothing as needed (including warm shoes, hat, gloves).
