Sami Culture and Reindeer Experience

Learn about the rich cultural heritage and traditions of the indigenous Sami people as well as meeting and feeding the reindeer.

Embark on a journey to a traditional Sami reindeer farm and step into the world of the indigenous people of the Arctic. Upon arrival, you will be warmly greeted by a local Sami guide who will take you through the history, culture and traditions of their people, giving you an insight into their way of life.

Get ready to meet the true stars of the show, the reindeer! As you feed these majestic creatures, your guide will teach you about the herd’s behavior, how they work together and the unique relationship the Sami people have with their animals.

Each reindeer has its own personality, quirks and habits, and you will have the chance to experience this firsthand. After this magical interaction with the reindeer, you will then gather around a fire in a traditional lavvu tent for a hearty lunch.

Here, you will have the opportunity to ask your guide further questions about their experiences and way of life. Get ready to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of the Sami people and their reindeer companions.

Yes, there are toilet and restroom facilities at the reindeer farm.
