Sami Reindeer Experience


Starting at Brändön Lodge we will introduce you to a local Sami man, Jon-Anders who will give us an insight into his culture and way of life. We walk in to the reindeer enclosure and Jon-Anders explains more about the “year of the reindeer”, the eight seasons and how they work with the reindeer and nature in each of these. We then take a walk around with the reindeer and get to learn more about the Sami and their culture. On arrival to the tent we then sit down around the fire for a cup of tea and take in the atmosphere of the tent and continue the discussion with Jon-Anders. Lunch is included by the fire.

Aurora Hideaway Dinner


A candle light dinner, somewhere out on the frozen arctic sea. This evening experience starts with a snowmobile sled transfer from your Lodge. On arrival at the Aurora Hideaway you will be introduced and offered a drink of your choice. Wine, beer or a warm drink. Your guide will then serve a hot steamy soup as your first dish. The stove in the Aurora Hideaway has a sparkling fire roaring and the candles and tealights creates a magic atmosphere. You now have a chance to go outside to look for the Northern Lights or just enjoy the absolute silence and the stars in the sky. The guide prepares the main course over the outdoor fire. A relaxed evening is finished off with dessert and tea/coffee before returning to your Lodge. The Aurora Hideaways are small “restaurants” that we move around in the archipelago with our snow cat. We choose the best places possible depending on wind, weather and ice conditions for each evening’s event. Snowshoes are brought on the tour so that you can go for a short walk while the guide prepare your meal.
