Meals

Day 2 - Reindeer Feeding and Sledding

Meet your guide this morning and walk together (or toboggan slide) to the Reindeer island. Your reindeer sleigh is awaiting and will take you on a peaceful winter adventure in a traditional ‘raito’ where the reindeer walk one after another each pulling a sleigh.

Sit back and enjoy the 800m sleigh ride through the snowy forest. Coffee is served by campfire in front of a traditional Laavu-shelter at the finishing point.

Afterwards, get a nice bag of lichen to feed to the reindeer. They come close and with a little patience they will eat from your hand. This is a good time to take close-up photos with reindeer too.

Dinner at the hotel.

Day 3 - Husky Safari and Snow Shoeing

After breakfast, your husky musher will pick you up and take you to a family owned husky farm nearby. You will be given instructions on how to control the sleds, which you will ride in pairs. One sitting in the sleigh and the other one mushing. At the half point, you’ll be served hot drinks and you may swap places before heading back.

After lunch, return outdoors, puttin on a pair of snowshoes and following the guide on the wintry forest paths. If you are lucky you might observe some animal tracks in the forest and maybe even see some arctic animals. This activity fits perfectly for those who are willing to explore the nearby nature by using their own muscle power. Snowshoeing might look easy but it's actually a great exercise!
