Know More about this tour

Wrap up warmly against the cold and start your experience with a pickup from your centrally located hotel in Levi. Board your air-conditioned coach with your guide and admire the frozen countryside as you drive to a reindeer farm nestled in the forest.

When you arrive, take a moment to absorb the traditional atmosphere of the farm and then, meet the friendly herders, Get close up to the gentle reindeers and learn how the Sami people have used these plucky animals to carry goods for thousands of years.

Following a safety briefing, hop aboard your traditional wooden sleigh and take an unforgettable ride around the surrounding woodlands. Cozy up in the sleigh rugs, and savor the magical setting of snow-clad pine trees as your reindeer pull you gently through the snow. As you travel, enjoy the all-enveloping silence, broken only by the swoosh of your sleigh runners.

After a roughly half-mile (1-kilometer) ride, leave your sleigh and warm up with a hot coffee in one of the farm huts or cottages. Learn more about reindeer husbandry, and discover how reindeers have evolved to cope in the Arctic, with sharp, wide hooves for walking in snow, and narrow antlers to fit between densely packed trees.
