Rørosrein

At walking distance from the centre of Røros, we offer reindeer sled tours, as well as leading, feeding and lassoing the reindeer. You can even join in a reindeer taming session. Afterwords, relax in a lavvo with a hot drink or traditional Sámi food. Season: December-April.

We are a South Sami family whose daily life revolves around reindeer herding. Our work with reindeer is based traditions that go back many generations here in the Røros area. The traditions are old, but it has been natural to adapt, and adopt modern technology as it becomes available. Our main home is in town, but much of our time is spent in the mountains with the reindeer, where we stay in cabins built for herders. In summertime we live at Gulhåen in the Kjøli-mountains.

During winter we keep a flock of reindeer at our farm on the outskirts of the town of Røros. We have built a traditional Sami dwelling, called gåetie, and we invite families and groups to visit us. Here we can share aspects of our unique culture and tradition, show how we work with the animals today and tell about how it used to be in the old days. We invite visitors to experience traditional foods, our handicrafts and the South Sami language.
