Did you discover the herd?


We are sure your answer is: Yes, indeed, I have seen the reindeer. Most likely that is your answer during the summer time. From May to September many thousand reindeer come to our island. They use the area as their natural summer grazing.

To learn more about the reindeer and the Sami people you should book a Sami experience with Mikkel and Solveig. The couple is your host at Mikkelgammen and will give you a lot of information about their reindeer and about their traditional life. Settle in aside of the bonfire and get enchanted by the stories they tell and the “joiking”, the traditional singing of the indigenous people of the North. Your encounter with Mikkel and Solveig will be completed by exceptional traditional food like Bidus, a typical stew with reindeer meat or dried reindeer.

Did u ever fly a bike?


You didn’t? Well, then come to Hammerfest and get the best cycling experience ever. Our EL-Bikes carry you to wherever you want in a split second. Take a tour to Førsøl under the midnight sun or go to Seiland and dash along the scenic coastal road.
