We will visit one of the most beautiful reindeer farms - Ounaskievari, which is located on the Ounsajoki rapids that don’t freeze even in the coldest winter.
Lying at the crossroads, the old barn of the farm has been serving as a guest house for travelers long time back in history. The owner Johanna respects nature and the traditional reindeer industry, and with twenty years of experience she offers her guests various authentic programs with reindeers.
Safari lasts for 20-45 min depending on driver’s skills and reindeer mind. The track lies thru the open planks and Lappish forest. Safari can be arranged as self-driven or driven by the herder as per your choice.
After the ride you will be able to get even closer to these arctic animals by entering a reindeer corral and feeding young calves with their favorite food - lichen – a fascinating symbiotic blend of fungus and algae that grows within the arctic circle, the reindeer eat it as if it’s candy! The reindeer herder will guide you thru this unique and safe experience.
Having done the outdoor program, you will be invited to visit the guesthouse, where in comfort and warmth, you can watch the presentation of reindeer life by the host and enjoy warm drinks with home-made pastry.
- Hot drink (berry juice/coffee/tea), home-made pastries, presentation about reindeer life

Reindeers are semi-wild animals and even being used to living next to people, they’re quite shy and can be unpredictable. Please always follow the instructions given by the guide and try to be calm and careful when close to the reindeers.
If you are pregnant please let us know beforehand.
We strongly recommend wearing warm winter clothing. Please provide shoe, trouser and jacket sizes in advance.
