Reindeer Half Day

What You'll Do

Experience the beautiful, snow-covered Lapland landscape in a truly unique way, as you cruise along in your reindeer-drawn sleigh.

Before the internal combustion engine, you had four cloven hooves. Sit back in your wooden sleigh, give your reindeer the signal, and glide effortlessly across the pure white snow.

This is your chance to find out how the ancient Laplanders moved about the northern wilderness before the snowmobile, on this once-in-a-lifetime ride through a stunning setting.

Get about the tranquility of the silent pine forest, as your gentle giant meanders its way through the trees and over the magnificent fells.

Spend time at the reindeer farm and get up close and personal with these hugely laid back creatures. Learn about their connection with the Sámi people and try your hand at feeding them, then set off on your adventure through the woods.

Markku

I was born and raised in Finland and for the last twenty years now I've been offering authentic, immersive experiences in the region of Lapland. Originally, I worked with my sister as operations manager for her tour company. So, finding,  sourcing and planning trips and excursions and this equipped me with a vast knowledge of the area and the tours that were being offered.
