Reindeer Farm & Safari, Lapland
At Star Vacations, every journey is a personal discovery that leads you to great friendships in distant lands along uncharted territories.
Reindeer husbandry is a major source of income for many in Northern Lapland. There are around 200,000 reindeer in Finland and about 6,500 reindeer owners in Lapland. Reindeer are semi-domesticated animals and owned by herders. Reindeer herding as a way of life – in its current form – is at least 500 years old. Reindeer are somewhat obedient animals, if one is able to train them first with right skills. Reindeer are an inseparable part of Lapland’s nature.
Since the start of the Common Era, reindeer have been used for carrying and pulling burdens. Reindeer are extremely strong as these can carry heavy loads. Their sharp hooves enable them to walk on snow and ice. They tend to shed their antlers during the winter and new antlers grow in their place.
Reindeer Farm Rovaniemi is a fun opportunity to visit a local reindeer farm and meet people living at the farm where both wild and trained safari reindeer live. Every visitor gets to know about the reindeer herding as a profession and gets introduced to reindeer driving. Thereon, by sitting on a sleigh, one can participate in a reindeer safari for one hour and adore beautiful snowy landscape of Rovaniemi on the way.
Coffee, tea and sweet bread is presented as refreshments at Reindeer Farm Rovaniemi. For an additional price, one may also have a lunch at the farm. However, the lunch should be ordered in advance. Guiding, transfers to farm and back and all equipment, winter clothes and shoes are included. To commemorate one’s visit to Reindeer Farm & Safari, a reindeer driving license is given as a memory.
