  • Pick-up
  • We offer you unique experience of walking in the shoes of a local reindeer herders’, finding the reindeer in the wilderness and acquire important skills of the reindeer taming to be one-on-one with these gracious animals. Take advantage of the exclusive private experience just for our small group. Avoid the tourist buzz and crowds at the reindeer farms.

    First, we will get you dressed in warm winter clothing. Then you will be seated in a snowmobile sled and will go for a sled ride pulled by a snowmobile. First part of our route will go on public snowmobile tracks, but then we will make a turn to the private lands and continue riding thru the untouched nature, gliding on the open bog and then entering the private forest making curves around the pine trees. Our reindeer host will be looking for the reindeer family. Suddenly we will stop in the middle of the forest and as the animals slowly approach us. Our host will help you to get a closer look into the reindeer husbandry culture. You will learn how to catch a reindeer with a lasso and to put a harness and feed them and will learn a lot of interesting facts about the reindeer. You will have good chances to take many nice photos of the reindeer in nature. You will spend about 2 hours outside with these arctic animals, get to know them closer and experience what’s called “a reindeer therapy”.

    As you start to feel chilly, we will invite you inside the traditional Lappish tepee. Get yourself comfortable close to the fire and we will offer you a warm drink of your choice: herbal tea (naturally decaffeinated), coffee or hot chocolate. Participation in the reindeer work outside naturally increases your appetite, and we offer you locally made reindeer sausages to grill in the fire and will fry pancakes. While you’re enjoying the snacks, the reindeer host will continue with storytelling about the reindeer and arctic way of living. You can ask him more questions if you feel like it. You will return to Levi the same way in a snowmobile sled.
