Visit Natives was started by Anniina Sandberg, whose passion for true-to-life and authentic native travel experiences around the world inspired her to create tours among the indigenous people in Norway and Tanzania. She wanted outsiders to feel welcomed and at home and to experience local traditions, feasts and a taste of the real arctic wilderness, that you simply can’t experience on a package holiday or from a luxury hotel. Visit Natives gives everyone the opportunity to immerse themselves in the local Sami reindeer herding culture and traditions of the Sami reindeer herders, whilst providing sustainable indigenous tourism in Lapland. Prepare yourself for a real arctic Lapland adventure!
This auction is for the unique chance to get up-close and personal with the untamed arctic wilderness of Northern Norway, experiencing the real life of the Sami reindeer herders in Norway – if this isn’t on your bucket list, then I don’t know what is!
This is a truly authentic artic experience and the winner will stay in a rustic and basic heated wooden cabin in the wilderness with a separate unheated toilet in an adjacent building (no shower). Bed linens and towels are included. In keeping with the traditional experience, guests will dine on traditional Sami food including reindeer meat, salted fish, berries, bread and more. As part of the stay Thermal Clothing will be provided, which includes warm overalls, boots, gloves, hats and helmets for snowmobiling.
Before hitting the road, the winner will enjoy a traditional Sami lunch. After a car journey for a few hours, the winner will then enjoy a 1,5 hours long snowmobile ride into the Arctic wilderness and to the cabin for the night.
The winner will experience reindeer herding life. The Sami family is happy to teach travellers all the reindeer herding tasks like how to tame reindeer to pull a sled or learn to hunt an Arctic grouse. In the cabin, there are traditional wooden Sami skiis that guests can use freely while exploring the surroundings. This is an off-grid and slowdown experience where things happen without a clock.
The winner will visit reindeer grazing freely somewhere in the arctic wilderness. Later on, there will be Sami joik singing, trying traditional Sami clothes. The evening is spent in a traditional tent.
After breakfast, the winner will be taken by snowmobile and car back to their pick-up location.
Please note: Visit Natives cannot guarantee you will see the Northern Lights as it is natural phenomenon. The winner will join other guests on this amazing group tour (Group sizes vary from 1-6 guests). Should you wish to bring a companion, Visit Natives will be happy to add a guest to your experience for an exclusive 30% discounted rate of €1,390 EUR / £1,170 GBP / $1,535 USD.
