Full description

Spend 3 hours with the animals that are truly the symbol of Lapland: the reindeer. After pickup, you’ll be driven to a traditional reindeer farm to get to know these beautiful beasts.   Help the reindeer prepare for a Lappish winter by feeding them delicious and nutritious food. The reindeer are happy to act as models, too, so take as many photos with the animals as you’d like.

Local reindeer herders and farmers will be there to explain the traditions of the reindeer herding lifestyle and answer any questions you may have about life on the Arctic Circle.

Learn as well about how the herders know which reindeer belong to them and how the families work together, as in the old times. You’ll also have the chance to experience a short reindeer ride in a sled before enjoying biscuits and warm tea.

    We got there early in the morning and we had to wait a little while for the sunlight to come out. We got a really nice tour, and the guide (from the farm) told us a lot about owning reindeer, the lifestyle and the farm. The reindeer-sleigh ride was very relaxing and unique, but too short.

    The service was provided by Arctic circle mobile park. The staff called Minna phoned me to confirm the pick time after I sent email to the address which GetYourGuide provided. We met Minna at hotel on time and knowing the tour only my wife and me, We were very appreciate for the company made the tour happened. When we arrived to the farm, we were having useful information how the reindeers farming in the country from the girl who working there and we had very funny experience to sledge ride even it was only several meters.

    Great experience and strongly recommended! Our guide - Minna was super helpful and made us feel exceptionally well! Ask for her when you book the tour! The farm is really interesting - you can get inside the closed area where they keep younger reindeer males. There you can watch reindeers eating their breakfast (we took the morning tour). Sadly it’s almost impossible to touch them as they are too shy but you are very close to them and you can take as many pics as you want. The highlight of the tour was a short ride on the sledge where you could feel that the reindeers are having fun as well!
