Prepare for the experience - Things to know before you go

During the tour, we will serve you a hot meal in a traditional North Norwegian setting around the open fire in a reindeer herder’s tent. Due to the limited access to a kitchen, we serve a traditional Norwegian soup/stew. The main ingredient is meat (lamb or reindeer) or fish. All meals contain vegetables and we also serve “Polar bread” on the side. We serve coffee, tea, and water to the meal. Vegetarian food will be provided if notice is given.
