Make your trip to Rovaniemi unforgettable with this reindeer sleigh ride experience. The capital of Lapland is the perfect place to meet Santa's helpers!
Reindeer Sleigh Ride
At the appointed time, we'll pick you up from your hotel and drive to the northern part of Rovaniemi, where we'll find one of the most famous reindeer farms in the capital of Lapland. Here, Finnish shepherds care for and train these polar animals, the only deer that allow themselves to be domesticated.
During the visit, their caretakers will tell us all about daily life at a reindeer farm and some curiosities about Santa's famous helpers. Did you know that their herds can be more than a hundred members?
After meeting the reindeer, it'll be time for a sleigh ride through the snowy forests around the farm. At the time of booking, you'll be able to choose the length of the ride (700 meters or 4 kilometers). The wintry trails and frosted trees will make for a magical experience!
At the end of the ride, we'll be served a snack and a traditional drink from this region of Finland while we continue getting to know our new four-legged friends. Then, we'll take you back to Rovaniemi.
At the time of booking, you can choose between two options:
- 700-meter ride: only takes place in the morning
- 4-kilometer ride: takes place in the afternoon
Hotel pickup is from hotels located within an 18 km radius of the center of Rovaniemi. After making your reservation, the local provider will contact you to arrange the exact time.
