When entering the enclosure it is very impressive but little by little the reindeer tame us and vice versa. We had to do the sled dogs canceled due to lack of snow but it was really no regrets. The Sami guide, his culture, his experience and the meal just at the top.

We had a great time! We can feed the reindeer directly in the pen, they come to see us like gluttonous and it was really great to be able to see them so close. The reception of the Sami is very warm, and for once the food was good. The reindeer meat is very tender, we all eat together in a sort of large traditional round wooden house with tables around the stove, it is very convivial. It was also great to be able to chat with them, and we had a detailed explanation of their way of life, their history and their culture. Not to be missed, I fully recommend!

The experience was amazing. The only downside was that there were some toddlers involved. The children cried and made it difficult to listen when the guide told about the Sami. The experience should perhaps be limited to including slightly older children who can sit still for just over an hour.
