REINDEER FARM & SLEIGH RIDE
Private Reindeer Farm Visit in Rovaniemi
Seize the opportunity to meet a local family and their amazing reindeer!
The Reindeer is one of the most iconic symbols of Lapland and has played an important role in the indigenous Sámi Culture. The reindeer population in the Finnish Lapland is about 200 000, which makes it 20 000 more reindeer than people! The reindeer are a semi-wild animal, meaning that they are all tagged, but are free to wander around the wilderness.
On this private tour we will visit an authentic reindeer farm in Rovaniemi held by a lovely family. The farm usually has around 30 reindeer on site, while the rest are roaming freely in the wild. You will be introduced to the reindeer herder’s everyday life and learn about everything there is to know about reindeer.
You will be taken on a fun reindeer sleigh ride into the surrounding peaceful forest. After the ride you will get the chance to reward the reindeer with a little treat and take some pictures with these beautiful and friendly animals. Then it is time for a delicious homemade Lappish lunch, served in the warmth of the spacious Family Kota.
After lunch there will be some more time to spend and take pictures with all the reindeer and the little calves. You will hear more stories about the lives of the reindeer and get to feed them their favorite food! At the farm there is also a little souvenir shop where you can find all kinds of special handy crafts and other reindeer products.
