Know More about this tour

Wrap up in cozy winter layers and start your experience with a pickup from Ylls. Settle into your minivan or coach with your guide and absorb the picturesque Arctic scenery as you travel to a reindeer farm located in the surrounding, pine-dotted fells.

Park at the farm and meet the welcoming herders along with their teams of gorgeous reindeers. Learn how these strong and obedient Arctic animals have been used to transport goods in Lapland through the ages, and have evolved wide, sharp hooves that give them traction in the snow, as well as narrow antlers that allow them to weave through dense woods.

After a safety briefing and instructions, climb onto your reindeer sleigh and enjoy a memorable ride in the surrounding forest. Snuggle up in the sleigh rugs, and enjoy the gentle pace and winter wonderland around you as the reindeer pull your sleigh through the snow.

When you return to the farm, warm up with coffee brewed on the campfire and enjoy some homemade cookies. Hear interesting facts about traditional reindeer husbandry, and feel free to ask any questions about the reindeers and how theyre cared for in winter and summer.

When the time comes, bid a reluctant goodbye and board your coach or minivan for your journey back. Your tour finishes with a drop-off in Ylls.
