REINDEER FARM VISIT TOUR IN ROVANIEMI
We at Porohaka wish to introduce you to the tradition of reindeer herding. The group size of the travelers arriving to us is small. So we can offer you personal service and tell you in detail what reindeer herding is.
FEED REINDEER DURING REINDEER FARM VISIT
We welcome you with open arms! During the reindeer farm visit we will visit and feed our reindeer herd of as much as 100 reindeer! During the feeding the reindeer come very close so you will notice just how charming and wise they are.
ACTIVITIES AND LUNCH INCLUDED THE REINDEER FARM VISIT TOUR
In addition to feeding the reindeer, you are also warmly welcomed to our house! There we will enjoy a traditional Finnish meat soup for lunch. After the lunch we will continue to get a reindeer sleigh ride. At the end of the day we will enjoy warm beverages and local pastries by the fire in our Laplander´s hut.

The day begins with a visit to our reindeer farm. To get there, we will take a short snowmobile ride from our home with you sitting comfortably in a sleigh pulled by the snowmobile. After arriving to the reindeer farm, it is time to feed the reindeer. We will take the reindeer food with us on the sleigh and move inside the enclosure where the reindeer stay. In the enclosure the moving happens with a sleigh pulled by a snowmobile. You will get to sit on the sleigh and watch as the reindeer come close as we feed them. We will take a short stop halfway through the feeding, so that you have enough time to observe. Reindeer are friendly but naturally shy, so remember that our actions should be calm. We will spend about an hour in the reindeer enclosure.
After arriving back to our home, we will enjoy a traditional Finnish reindeer meat soup. We kindly ask you to inform us in advance if you have any allergies or if you wish to enjoy a vegetarian option. During the lunch we will also tell you more about reindeer herding.
After enjoying the lunch, we will have a reindeer sleigh ride! After preparing the reindeer, the ride can begin. You will get to sit warmly in a sleigh pulled by the reindeer as we travel through the beautiful forest. Our ride is as long as 2 kilometers long and takes about an hour!
The ride is held by an experienced and trustworthy reindeer herder. During the ride you will also have an opportunity to take pictures with the reindeer.
At the end of the day we will enjoy warm beverages by the fire in our Laplander´s hut. You will have the chance to ask questions and share your thoughts about the day.
