Reindeer sleigh ride and lunch in a traditional tent

kotaporokuva_lehteen_01

Sami people, Northern indigenous people, still carry on reindeer herding. Sami got everything they needed in life from reindeer herding. Meat and milk as food, clothes and footwear from hide and horns were used to build tools and housekeeping items. Sami lived nomadic life and reindeers were stubborn but reliable form of transport, and tradition of reindeer sleighing was born.

To see and meet these Nordic animals, you don’t need to go to Lapland. Now herders bring these wonderful animals in region for winter season. From December till April you can participate on a reindeer ride, meet reindeers and feed them lichen, reindeer’s favorite food!

After reindeer sleigh ride we serve lunch in a traditional tent where you can enjoy some salmon prepared over a fire and pot tea, and hear stories and traditions of reindeers.
