Ráidu – Meet the reindeer

For thousands of years, the Sámi people have lived in harmony with nature and their reindeer, constantly moving in search of food for the herd. After a short transfer from ICEHOTEL, you encounter the Sámi culture at Nutti Sámi Siida, founded by the Sámi Nils Nutti.

Here you get to meet and feed the curious reindeer and learn more about the Sámi lifestyle and the indigenous people of the region. Try driving a reindeer sled around a fenced 200-meter track, a wooden sled, pulled by a reindeer – a real adrenaline-kick. You then gather around the fire in a traditional Sámi tent where you are served coffee and get to taste the Sámi signature dish suovas. The tour ends with a short transfer back to ICEHOTEL.
