If you love animals, this is the must have tour to you. We train new animals to work with people mainly as sleigh reindeer. For that we have our “Reindeer Sleigh School”. Visit our Reindeer Sleigh school, meet our lovely students, and learn about animal friendly training methods usable also with other animal species.
In the school we have grades for reindeer aged one to four. Some might need a bit more time and have an extra year before starting to work. When our students graduate, they’re ready and happy to work as professional sleigh reindeer.
Visiting the Reindeer Sleigh School you will meet our students, learn how they are trained, and what kind of animal training methods and issues are central in training reindeer, and also other animals.
Program: Getting familiar with the reindeer training methods and principles. Learning about animal welfare and animal-friendly training through reinforcement. Feeding the students and getting to know them. Short course of suopunki (lasso) throwing. Warm drinks and cookies.
If you don’t want to join a group tour, ask for a private visit via e-mail (email@example.com). The program of private visits can also be modified according to your wishes.

Please note that we do not have any attractions build specially for visitors. Instead we offer authentic and natural real-life experiences. But no fear, we’ll surely take good care of you and it’s completely safe, though.
In all our journeys, we respect nature and show how to behave respectfully in nature. All activities are planned carefully also according to this. We use as little and as eco-friendly products as possible, minimize the waste, and recycle everything. Anything you bring to nature, also bring it back with you. We also minimize our carbon footprint by conserving our own forests from heavy forestry.
