Observing reindeer herding


We all know what Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer does on Christmas time, but most people do not know how he and his colleagues live rest of the winter. In winter the they graze over a vast fell area, so the exact location of the herd is hard to know in advance. This tour takes you to a local reindeer farm or to the nearby mountains. Here we have an opportunity to observe reindeer herding and learn about Sami culture.
