About Reindeer Farm Porohaka - Rovaniemi
We are a small reindeer herding family in Rovaniemi, Lapland. Our main source of income comes almost entirely from reindeer herding, which our family has practiced for decades. Our name, Porohaka, has stayed the same from the start of the 20th century when our farm was established. This is our first time to open our reindeer farm for travellers as you. We at Porohaka wish to introduce you to the tradition of reindeer herding. We welcome you with open arms!

This family owned farm is small and full of generational knowledge. Unlike the tourist traps in Santa Claus Village, this was a true immersion into a reindeer farm where you are able to feed them in an open field and enjoy a sleigh ride through the beautiful forest. The hosts were super knowledgeable and welcomed us into their home for lunch, as well as their kota for hot chocolate and one of the best desserts I’ve ever had (homemade too!)

The owners could not have been kinder or more welcoming. I learned so much, their homemade reindeer stew and blueberry pie was delicious. It was such an authentic and lovely experience. 10/10 recommended

This trip is a MUST if you are traveling to Lapland. Katja has created a knowledgeable, homey and amazing experience. We learned about her family farm, the reindeer farm organization in Lapland. We spent time feeding the reindeer (which was beyond cool). She invited us into her cozy home to eat with her and her husband delicious homemade reindeer stew. We then were whisked away on a sleigh ride into the wintery forest. We returned to a warm fire with homemade blueberry cake (which was soooooo good) and hot chocolate! We even were taught how to build a fire from birch and iron/magnesium! It was a truly unforgettable experience and I'm glad we found her and her farm! The 6 hours flew by! Thank you Katja for all you did to make such a memorable adventure for us!

Had an amazing time with Katja and the reindeers. The whole tour was simply perfect, we were warmly welcomed, had all we needed to be warm and cosy on the snowmobile, and Katja took the time for us! She answered all our questions nicely, explained the history of her work, the reindeers and of Lapland too. We enjoyed eating her delicious blueberry pie with a hot chocolate by the fire afterwards, it was a unique moment. We recommend it 100% !

If you only go for one activity during your visit to Rovaniemi - you should choose this one! We got to spend a day with Katja, her family and coworkers in the winter wonderland at the farm and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We learnt a lot about the reindeers and it was so nice to be able to feed and pet them :) Katja served us a delicious lunch (including a very tasty vegetarian alternative to the reindeer soup) and answered all our questions about reindeers and life at the farm. An unforgettable experience that I would recommend to everyone!
