This journey begins at a local reindeer farm right on the outskirts of the city of Rovaniemi, but deep enough to be entrenched in the forest. Meet many reindeers including the cute little ones and have many opportunities for fantastic pictures. Experience the old-school way to travel by sled in the Arctic Circle and imagine what it must feel like for Santa to be pulled by reindeers. A safe trail will be followed which has been built and maintained by the reindeer herders themselves. You as the riding guests will be laid down in the sleigh and covered by warm blankets. Enjoy the Arctic Lapland’s beautiful scenery by reindeer sledding. Afterwards, be welcomed to the farmer’s house for snacks and warm drinks understanding why most Northern men have full facial hair just like good ol’ Mr. Santa Claus!
