We are 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 tracks.
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 how important nature diversity is for the reindeer and for the local nature.
