Learn all about Lappish culture and its wildlife with this visit to a local reindeer farm outside of Rovaniemi. Step into a sleigh and enjoy the snowy scenery as you travel down forest paths, pulled by these indigenous creatures. Meet the local reindeer herders and warm up around a fire with hot beverages as you hear about their way of life.
Picked up from your hotel and driving 30 minutes away from Rovaniemi city, you will meet the local reindeer herders and familiarize yourself with their culture and everyday life. Take your opportunity to feed the reindeer and take pictures with them. You will depart the farm in a comfy wooden sled for 700 m travel with reindeer in the forest, wrapped up in warm blankets.
After coming back, listen to the farmer share some interesting stories with you, while cuddling up in the cozy atmosphere in a Lappish traditional hut, also called a Kota. Taste some steaming beverages and cookies, the local's all-time favorite for warming up in the winter time.
