Get inspired by Arctic lifestyle on a riverboat cruise and meet the reindeer on a farm visit
Travel through serene landscapes in a long wooden riverboat and experience the summer of the Arctic Circle. Continuing the journey, the boat will take you to the reindeer farm located by the river Ounasjoki. At the farm, you will become familiar with reindeer herding, learn how to use reindeer lasso ‘suopunki’ and take part in a ceremonial crossing of the Arctic Circle. Enjoy the Lappish hospitality in a hot cup of coffee and some traditional Finnish pastries before heading back to Rovaniemi city.
