Reindeer Farm Visit and Safari

Pick up: 09:30

Travel back in time with a reindeer sleigh ride, a traditional Lappish method of transportation!

With the reindeers’ steady pace, you can get the most out of the pristine scenery. For photograph enthusiasts, there are many ideal photo opportunities along the ride and while on the reindeer farm. Begin the trip by encountering living history on the reindeer farm. Reindeer herding is among the oldest professions held by the native people of Lapland and much of their way of life perseveres today. The best way to meet the locals in Lapland is to meet a reindeer—they outnumber the humans! Reindeer have been the staple animal in Lapland for thousands of years, a primary means of transportation, milk, and meat. Reindeer herding began with the nomadic indigenous people of Lapland, the Sami, who lived in reindeer herding communities.

Our guests have the chance to meet the reindeer farmers themselves who can regale us with stories of their life and livelihood together with nature. Kids (and grown-ups) will enjoy the chance to feed the reindeer some tasty lichen, their favourite treat. Indoors you can enjoy something hot to drink and Finnish pulla (buns).

Husky Safari and Farm Visit

Pick up time: Morning

A short transfer takes you to the husky farm, where the enthusiastic arctic sled dogs greet you with barking and jumping - as if they were saying, come on, let's go. Huskies are passionate about running and that is why they are eager to take off with you in their sledge. But first things first: instructions on safety and driving. You and a friend are sharing a team of huskies and can take turns in mushing (driving) and being a passenger.

The route takes you through an enchanted winter landscape. There will be stops when you can change places as musher and passenger. You will also have some photogenic moments midst the stunning nature and with the beautiful dogs. Once they have ran off some energy, they are calmer and let you enjoy the silent drive.

Back at the farm we will gather around the campfire to hear the mushers tell about life with huskies. You will of course also have time to cuddle and pat your newfound friends before it is time to leave the husky farm. Duration 2 hours
