We had a really great day at the reindeerfarm, spendig the beginning of the tour feeding the animals and having coffee/tea and cookies at the campfire. The atmosphere was amazing & we loved listening to the interesting things the owner of the farm told us about! Afterwards the guide gave us instructions on how to canoe before we went out on the lake to discover the beautiful landscape. During the whole adventure our guide took care of taking snapshots with the camera and even with the drone - it was such a great day & we would highly recommend this daytrip to everyone!
