Fascinating insight into Sami culture
Feb 2020
A warm welcome from the Sami people, with detailed instructions on how to drive the reindeer!
A short ride on the sledge, then a chance to meet the reindeer and a lesson in how to lassoo a set of antlers.
Coffee with delicious cake accompanied an interesting talk.

Short ride in a sleigh, opportunity to feed the reindeer and lasso a head of antlers. The Sami family team are friendly and informative. A lovely afternoon experience.

lovely reindeer ride and feeding reindeer ...
Feb 2020
This was a different experience, sitting back and being pulled along at a steady pace by a reindeer - a pleasant ride.

After the ride, it was fun to be up close to many reindeer to feed them - a lovely experience ...

Lovely realxing visit
Jan 2020
We visited as part of an organised excursion from our hotel.
The farm had a family feel to it and the staff gave us lots of information about the reindeer and the Sami way of life. We had a short ride on a sledge pull by one of the reindeer, which I wasn't expecting.
We were provided with hot tea and cake and a reindeer driving licence

Meet the reindeers
Jan 2020 • Family
We visited this reindeer farm on a snowy night. The pick up by Lapland Safaris was smoothly and easy. The lady of the farm, is s real Sami. She was very knowledgeable. At the farm we very divided in pairs for the sleighs. Every sleigh its own reindeer. The pace was slow, but so we could enjoy the beautiful nature. We had a lot of fun with the reindeer behind us. He was to quick, so his head was next to ours.

Wonderful first touch with the local reindeers and the Sami !
Dec 2019
Very interesting experience with the local Sami and also the pretty reindeers. We had 2.5 hours sled ride which includes story telling from the Sami, warm drinks and snacks were provided as well. We should have been provided sufficient time to take more photos during the sledding / feeding time. Nevertheless, it was a lifetime experience and definitely recommend this farm if you are visiting this place !

I had the most amazing time at the Reindeer Farm,to get so up and close to the reindeer, hand feed them and have a sleigh ride.This was a dream come true.
I learnt so much about the Samii people,and their culture.
We were made so welcome.
Also had lovely refreshments.
