We were with a tour group of 20 in late May, so no snow, no sleigh ride. Instead the reindeer were called in for feeding, and we were able to wander around with them eating out of our hands -it was so much fun! Then...More

Great trip. Very low key touristy trip. Taken out into the forests by sleigh where the reindeer are fed. Petri Mattus tells you about his life as a reindeer farmer, Great photo opportunities as you are surrounded by them.

The reindeer herd roams in the forest, they aren't fenced in. When the herder calls them for dinner, they emerge out of nowhere by the dozens. They aren't as big as cattle, but they aren't exactly tame, and are somewhat wary of strange people.
