Join us to see our reindeer herd and learn about Sámi culture at our home. 4-18 km tour in the nature depending on where our herd is.
We are a Sámi reindeer herder family of five. We live by a lake side surrounded by forest and hills 10 km from Inari.
For this trip we have warm overalls (s-xxl), warm jackets (xxxl), shoes, gloves and safety helmets if you need to borrow our warm clothes.
You can sit back in the sledge and enjoy the wintry scenery of Inari while the reindeer herder drives the snowmobile. On the way we can spot wild animal track's.
We herd the reindeer to keep them in a certain area. Our winter herding area. You get to see how we do it.
Some of our reindeer are very friendly and you can get close to them. You have a good opportunity to photograph the reindeer. We will tell you stories about reindeer and how important nature diversity is for reindeer and for the local nature.
You will be served a cup of warm berry juice and home made berry cake. You can try our traditionally made smoked reindeer meat snacks. Then we will leave the reindeer in peace and head back to the farm.
At the farm you can visit our charming home and experience a local home visit. We will tell you about Sámi culture and history. You will see our genuine Sámi clothes and handcrafts.
We have a small handcraft shop at our home.
You can also meet our friendly reindeer herder dog´s Riggee, Risku and Tivgâ.
At our reindeer farm it is possible to see Siberian Jay and Siberian Tit and some other wild bird´s that overwinter in Inari. Some of them eat from our hand. You can try your luck.
