Ráidu – Encounter with reindeer
Join our Sámi guide to the reindeer camp outside Jukkasjärvi. Meet, greet and feed our reindeer herd that will regard and approach you with curiosity. Have a short reindeer sled drive around a circuit where you can compete with other drivers or just have a peaceful and quiet reindeer drive. You learn about the work as a reindeer herder and gain insight into the Sámi lifestyle, from nomadic history until today. The Sámi signature dish suovas will be prepared over open flames and eaten in a lávvu-tent with a hot drink around the fireside.
