Your guide will drive you in a very small group (never more than 8 people) to one of the most traditional reindeer farms in Lapland. Those family herders are based just outside of Rovaniemi on the lovely shores of a peaceful lake. From our perspective, they provide the best experience possible when it comes to both knowledge and service.
As you will be taken in the surroundings, you will learn about the reindeer from the herders. They will show you around the traditional farm and, because it is the first visit of the day, you will be given a chance to feed them their favourite food, lichen, which to reindeer is like chocolate! The visit will end with a very friendly time around the fire in the company of a herder who will answer all your questions and share their passion with you.
After this great time with the reindeer, your guide will take you to the husky kennel to meet the excited dogs. The mushers will greet you at their farm, so will the barking of their lovely huskies. The mushers will take time to share their lifestyle, explain to you what the job of a musher consists of, how they train their dogs and answer all your questions. All the dogs are very photo enthusiasts, so do not forget to bring your camera with you!
At the end of this combination activity, you will get back to Rovaniemi with a great insight into two very iconic arctic animals!
