Go on a 1-hour safari on reindeer sleighs through the beautiful winter forest at a relaxed pace.

For this excursion, we are using 2 reindeer farms, located within a 15-20 min drive from Rovaniemi city center. Both places have been traditionally owned by Lappish families who have been practicing reindeer husbandry for at least six generations. One lies on the bank of a river, another one on a lake, both are surrounded by taiga forest.


From the early morning the reindeer herder starts to prepare for the safari – harnesses the reindeer and sleds, puts out extra warm reindeer skins for the passengers, makes fresh tea and coffee, and bakes fresh sweet buns. You will go on an approximately 1-hour safari on reindeer sleighs through the beautiful winter forest at a relaxed pace.


After the ride you will be able to take pictures with the reindeer and feed them with their favorite food – reindeer lichen – a fascinating symbiotic blend of fungus and algae that grows within the Arctic Circle, the reindeer eat it as if it's candy! After that, make your way to a warm cafe with an open fireplace for a cup of hot tea or coffee and a homemade pastry we think tastes especially good.
