Full description

Immerse yourself in truly authentic Lappish culture with the country’s magical, gentle reindeer. Experience the tranquillity of the local forests as you travel along the glittering snowy trail on a sleigh pulled by a reindeer. After being picked up from your hotel, you will meet the local reindeer herders and familiarize yourself with their culture and everyday life. Take the opportunity to feed the reindeer and take pictures with them.

Then, depart the farm in a storybook wooden sled, wrapped up in warm blankets, for a short journey with the reindeer into the forest. To show all your friends back home, you’ll receive a certified reindeer sleigh driving license. After returning from your mystical ride, cuddle up in the cozy traditional Lappish hut while listening to the farmer as they share stories of the local history and culture. Taste some steaming beverages and snacks, the all-time favorite for locals to warm up in the wintertime.

    The bus was on time and got us safely to our destination. The people there were very open and friendly and answered all questions. We had the chance to get incredibly close to the reindeer and some of them we could even pet. We really enjoyed the sleigh ride! At the end there was a sweet tea and delicious biscuits. The dogs of the farm accompanied us all morning and were happy to be petted! An incredibly great experience!

    We met our guide at the Nordic Unique Travel Office in the morning and drove straight to a reindeer farm outside of Rovaniemi. There we were warmly welcomed by the farm owner. He explained a lot to us about feeding, husbandry and social interaction. We were always able to pet the reindeer. We were allowed to go on a sleigh ride and were given drinks and snacks by the cozy fire. Overall, the event was very authentic, informative and a lot of fun. In addition, the cold weather with snowfall has all the atmosphere! We would love to do it again!
