Kautokeino is Norway’s largest reindeer herding municipality, where traditions still live. You have the opportunity to join meet tame reindeer and experience the everyday life of a reindeer herding Sami.
On this trip you will get to come into close contact with the reindeer! Join in feeding the reindeer, where you can nice close-ups and maybe a little selfie with the reindeer? Is there interest in it, then you can learn how to throw a lasso.
The northern lights, the moonlight and the clear clean the starry sky gives the dark time in the arctic a different, blue and spectacular light. We drive with snowmobiles into the vastness in search of the beautiful and mythical the northern lights. Join the hunt for the Northern Lights. The trip starts from Thon hotel where guests are given warm winter clothes. We drive 2 people per snowmobile and pray to the weather gods that the northern lights will show us their spectacular light show this evening.
Ice fishing is one of the village’s favourite winter activities. It is exciting and at the same time relaxing to lie on a reindeer skin on the ice in the blue hour, while you look down into the fishing hole and wait to spot the big fish. The trip starts from the Thon hotel where guests are given winter clothes. We drive 2 people per snowmobile and the trip goes to one of the many good ice fishing lakes we have in Kautokeino. In the lavvu, we warm ourselves around the fire while guests are served coffee and cake. It is also possible to pre-order Sami food.
