REINDEER FARM VISIT TOUR 2,5 h – ROVANIEMI
We at Porohaka wish to introduce you to the tradition of reindeer herding. The group size of the travellers arriving to us is small, so we can offer you personal service and tell you in detail what reindeer herding is. If you don’t find availability you can still ask us in chat. We don’t put all availability on internet.
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.

If you like to have Reindeer Sleigh Ride safari also, please check this tour.
The tour 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 two hours in the reindeer enclosure.
After arriving back to our home, we will enjoy hot beverages and home baked cakes in our Laplanders hut by the open fire. You will have the chance to ask questions and share your thoughts about the day.
