The social programme for the accompanying persons on Thursday June 17 will include a trip to a Sámi village just outside of Tromsø. The village is a typical, although small Sámi village. The participants will have the possibility to experience a traditional Sámi meal, and try to catch a reindeer with a lasso.


The social programme for all participants on Friday June 19th will start after lunch with a city walk of down town Tromsø. The walk will end up at Polaria a knowledge-based adventure centre with themes from the Polar Regions, where there will be a possibility of feeding the seals. Tromsø is the largest city in the Nordic countries north of the Arctic Circle.
