It is impressive to enjoy the peace and tranquility of a reindeer sleigh ride. While searching for the northern lights we peacefully move through the arctic forests, wrapped up warm in our sleighs, far away enough from Rovaniemi so the city lights don’t disturb us. You will meet reindeer herders who share their experiences of life hand-in-hand with nature. The reindeer sleigh ride takes about 45 minutes, after which we head back indoors for warm snacks and stories of reindeer herding, northern lights and wilderness life. There are plenty of opportunities throughout the safari to take photos.

Please note: Winter thermal overalls are compulsory for all the tours. Please book your outfit rental at the same time when reserving the program.
