8 days - Sámi reindeer spring migration – Tour of a lifetime

  •  /  km From You
Overview

Join the Sámi herders and experience the reindeers on their annual spring migration from their winter pastures on the inland to their summer calving and grazing areas on the coast. This adventure is a unique privilege made available for the very few by Sámi families from Finnmark.

This trip is recommended for adventurous people that would like to do something truly unique, learn new skills and live life to the fullest. Age and gender sets no limits, however you must be in a good physical shape. Much of the time will be spent in the hands of the arctic environment.

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.

The journey starts in the heart land of the Sámi culture and ends further north by the arctic coast, where the reindeers have their summer grazing area and where they give birth to a new generation. You will be taking part in the daily work and learn how the Sámis herd their reindeer herds. Taking part in the migration means you will be travelling with the Sámis, like the Sámis. You will be eating and sleeping like a Sámi herder. Your participation means that you will be living close to the reindeer and experience the old nomadic life of the Sámi people. You will be put to work when necessary leading the herd across the ancient and desolate Finnmark Plateau by snow mobile. You will be sleeping in a lavvu (Sámi tent) and you will be served traditional Sámi food.

In the middle of April it is light almost 24 hours a day, the snow has started melting and there are some good opportunities for ice fishing on the numerous lakes we pass by.

The price includes:
Local guide, local transportation, all meals from dinner on day 1 to breakfast on day 8, lodging in Karasjok, some clothing and equipment (see equipment list).

The price does not include:
· Travel to / from Karasjok
· Personal equipment (please check the equipment list)
· Travel insurance
· Alcoholic beverages

Lodging:
- In Karasjok you will be lodged at the truly unique Engholm Husky lodge in double rooms in cabins with one or two rooms.
- Single rooms are available for an additional cost.
- On the migration you will sleep in lavvo (sami tent)

Duration:
8 days.
