Visit reindeer herd
Pictures above by our lovely guest Samira Heimberg
Join us to see our reindeer herd.
We are a Sámi reindeer herder family of five. We live by a lake side surrounded by forest and hills 10 km from Inari. We are professional reindeer herders so you will learn genuine stories and facts about reindeer herding.
First we will dress you in warm overalls (s-xxl), shoes, gloves and safety helmets if you need to borrow our warm clothes.
Then 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.
Some of our reindeer are very friendly and you can get close to them. You have a good opportunity to photograph the reindeer. You will be served a cup of warm berry juice and home made berry cake. You can try also 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, history and believes. You will see genuine Sámi clothes and handcrafts.
The Visit is always for you. For your group, family or friends. There will not be other guests at the same time.
