Reindeer Sleigh Ride

  • English English
  • 1 hour

Have you ever wanted to feel like Santa Claus? Now’s your chance with this reindeer sleigh ride through the Ranua forests, one of the most beautiful destinations in Finnish Lapland.

Reindeer Sleigh Ride

We’ll start this activity at the main entrance to the Hotel Holiday Village Gulo Gulo, where we’ll gear ourselves up with special thermal clothes. Next, an instructor will give you some basic instructions so you know how to drive the sleigh. 

Once you’re ready, it’ll be time to climb onto the sleighs and let the reindeers pull you along for 1.6 miles (3 kilometres). On the journey, which will take around 40 minutes, you’ll drive your own sleigh! There is no doubt that this is an unforgettable experience like no other. Don’t worry though, an English speaking guide will be alongside you in their sleigh, helping you and giving you advice if you need it. 

After this incredible route through the picturesque forests of Ranua, we’ll end back at the initial meeting point. We you finish, you’ll be able to stroke the reindeers and ask the guides about these incredible animals. Then, we’ll have to leave them to rest: we don’t want to wear them out before Christmas, otherwise, Santa won’t be able to deliver all the presents!
