Come and meet the most iconic animal of Lapland! Your guide will drive you in a very small group (max. 8 people) to one of the most traditional reindeer farms in Lapland. The safari is based just outside of Rovaniemi, Finland, on the lovely shores of a peaceful lake.
The Reindeer herders will show you around the traditional farm, and you will be given a chance to feed them their favourite food, lichen, which to reindeer is like chocolate! During this visit, you will also experience a 2.5-kilometres reindeer sleigh ride, where you will go through the snowy forest and white scenery, and maybe even spot some other arctic animals!
When you come back from the safari, a warm cup of coffee or tea and traditional snacks will wait for you on the farm. The herder will explain you about their lifestyle and reindeer husbandry; this is the best time to ask questions and feed your curiosity! Before leaving and heading back to Rovaniemi, you may ask your guide to spend a bit more time in the farm if you would like to.

Your Local Host:
After serving in the Royal Marine Commando's for 5 years and working as a professional sailing & outdoor instructor, I was looking for a place to fulfill my vision and dreams. I found it here in the Finnish Lapland, where I can share the natural phenomena, opportunities, and beauty this amazing place has to offer. Lapland is also a great place for me to raise my family. Local nature connects people as you can share beautiful moments with strangers in very peaceful environments. Winters here are long, and without doubt this is the hardest job I have ever done. But I love it and I can promise the warmest of welcomes and an amazing time!
