We had a wonderful time at the Reindeer Farm and got to hangout and feed the reindeers. They were very friendly and amusing (because we didn't really know what to expect). We learned a lot about the Sami Culture and this is a must do if you are in Sortland.
I am a local and I had heard about this place, but never visited until recently. It is excellent and you learn about the sami culture and it is a special experince to come close to the raindeer.

We also learned about reindeer herding (a large part of Sami existence) and had some time with the reindeer. I had wondered whether this part of the trip would be bit "touristy", but it was friendly,... 更多
Very much worth visiting to learn more about sami culture and about reindeer farming. Just fascinating. Laila, the very friendly owner explained us all in detail. Kids also enjoyed very much the feeding of the reindeer. Only minus is the price: 550 Nok for our family (200 per adult and 50 per child) is a lot for the time you... 更多
