On this tour you will visit authentic reindeer farm outside of Rovaniemi and meet these Arctic animals in very close distance. The tour is guided by professional photographer, who will take the most memorable photos from the visit and will send them to your email afterwards!
We have carefully chosen one of the most traditional reindeer farms for this 3-hour long tour with our photographer. You will meet the reindeer herder family who have been practising reindeer herding at least 5 generations in this traditional farm. During your visit you will explore everyday life in the farm, get to feed the reindeers and get familiar with life of the reindeer. You will hear some stories and facts about reindeer herding in Lapland and how it is an integral part of the nature and culture in Northern Finland. You can also test “suopunki” throwing which is one of the most important skills for herders to get reindeer under control.
We will depart from Rovaniemi by minibus and take a short 35 minute drive to our reindeer farm. On the farm you will hear stories of reindeer herding from local family and get to feed and meet the reindeers. You will also enjoy cup of coffee/tea/hot chocolate and freshly made crepes in traditional Lappish Kota building.
This tour is your number one choice in Rovaniemi if you want to get familiar with these iconic animals of Lapland away from crowds and exclusively in small groups. This is the only reindeer farm visit from which you will receive professional, edited pictures as a memory to highlight your wonderful journey here in Lapland.
