Description - What to expect

Start your Rovaniemi reindeer safari with a convenient pick-up from your hotel and then take a short 25-minutes drive to meet your day-trip partner, a gentle and loving reindeer. Take a chance to get a reindeer sled driving license for your exceptional trip in the Arctic, as the reindeer herder gives you the basic instructions.

After the introductions, it is now the time for you to go on a one-hour sled ride in the arctic forests pulled by reindeer. Climb onboard a wooden sled, wrap yourself in blankets, and venture into the Arctic forest. The reindeer will take you to the forests covered in sparkling white, and you can enjoy the spectacular sights of the Lappish untouched wilderness as you snuggle on the warm sled.

Listen to the soothing, gentle sound of your reindeer softly stepping on the powdery snow as your sled glides across the fairy-tale-like landscapes. Take an opportunity to try leading the reindeer, and obtain a reindeer sled driving license for the memory of your trip. After returning from the journey, the reindeer herder will tell you everything about reindeer and their life as you refresh and warm yourself with some steaming drink and gingerbread.
