We fed the reindeer which was amazing! They are very sweet, like goats at a petting zoo. Learned about the Samis, and had the opportunity to eat reindeer, but decided against it. If you love animals, and like us, are missing your dog, this is...More

Nice little reserve within easy walking distance from the Ice Hotel, with a cosy cafe. Buy a bag of lichen to feed the reindeer: the kids will love it, and so do the adults.
