- At the farm we meet local Lapps dressed in their traditional costumes. They have worked at the farm over many generations. We start our day by practising catching a reindeer using Lappish lasso “suopunki”. Once you have proved yours skills we proceed to harnessing.
Next we harness our reindeer ourselves and prepare for a long ride across the wild forest. Two persons travel per sleigh, taking turns to steer the reindeer. Depending on the snow level you may drive yourself or sit as a passenger on the sleigh.
Enjoy a break at the wilderness camp; we heat something warm to drink, barbeque sausages ourselves and follow the reindeer host frying pancakes over the open fire. After the break, we return to the farm taking an alternative route if possible. When the reindeer know we are returning home, they run for joy! All you have to do is enjoy the ride across snowscape and through the forests. Back at the farm we will get our reindeer driving licenses. It is also possible to buy souvenirs there.
Duration 5-6 hours, including return transfers from your hotel. Experience the greatest reindeer safari in Lapland!
