Reindeer / Attraction
Reindeer herder Sami and his family present today’s everyday life on a reindeer farm and the history. On your visit to the farm you will get close to the animals and also have the possibility to feed them. The reindeer eat the lichens and birch leaves out of your hand. You may even pet the tamer animals. You can warm up a in the hut or the lean-to shelter where we offer realcampfire coffee, cookies and reindeer sausages. We will also try to discover the secret of throwing a lasso. The visit to the reindeer farm includes also a ride in a sled. The 1 kilometer long trail takes you through snowy forest. The sleds will be drawn by formula reindeer but also the slower kind. To round up the outing we will visit the reindeer gallery, which is a museum as well as an art gallery. Sami’s oldest building is over 200 years old, an old wood heated log cabin, where old tools, furniture and clothes are displayed. The matron Marjut has decorated the walls with reindeer themed watercolor paintings. Souvenirs, made on site, made reindeer antlers and reindeer hides can be bought from the gallery.
