We visited as a group and it was great getting up close to the reindeer and feeding them. We heard all about reindeer in Finland and also the history and culture of the Sami, presented in a very interesting way. We were served coffee, tea and homemade biscuits in a traditional Sami building. There is a small shop selling local handicrafts where we bought antlers and horn buttons. The farm is situated on the edge of the wilderness and the winter landscape was stunning. Altogether a fascinating and educational couple of hours.

Amazing experience! Petri will bring you in the forest and you will see the reindeers in their natural environment. Petri and his wife will tell you a lot about reindeer's farming and sami culture. This experience felt very "real" and not only for turist.

Petri and his Kirsi were very welcoming. Following Petri to feed his reindeers was instructive as he openly shares his knowledge and stories about life as a herder. The shirt journey from his house to the herd in a sleigh was very beautiful. Seeing the reindeers up close is also really nice. He made a fire and offered us coffee and snack. We were also glad that we could purchase pelts directly from him.
A brilliant activity.

Loved learning about the Sami culture here. Wonderful people. Best crafts in the area. Very authentic. The money goes directly to the people. The reindeer seems happy too.
