For a very affordable price you get to feed and pet the friendly reindeer. Also, the staff was very friendly and the lady knew a lot about the reindeer's personalities and behavior.

It's a great chance not only to feed the reindeers, but also learn about their daily life. The guide is eager to answer any questions about the reindeers, such as what they eat, where they live, and even their individual characters.

Thank you for your kind words. I find these animals so fascinating, there is no days that I wouldn't learn something new about them, if not as a species then as an individual.

Excellent feed, meet and greet the reindeer. We knew nothing about reindeer and our guide was very informative and enthusiastic. Great experience.

For just €5, you can feed the reindeers, pet them, take photos with them. The guides will provide you food to feed them. They are well behaved as well. Except for Polar Bear. He’s a little curious 😂

Thank you for your kind words :) Polar Bear (aka "Snow") is very social and he likes people, it was nice to see how he liked you and wanted to have all your attention.

We went in July and had the greatest experience. You get to feed and be up close to the reindeer. You can even pet them if you want and they let you. The best part is the education you can get from the staff. They...More

We really enjoyed our Reindeer ride. We opted for the longer ride and really enjoyed the trip. You are given a blanket to keep warm. The only thing I would suggest is be prepared for lots of Reindeer hair all over your clothing. If you...More

Thank you for your kind words. Reindeer hair is really something that you can not avoid. But then again, we don't charge extra for them ;) It's like sand from a beach holiday, you will find it even weeks later ;)

HI In November we start reindeer rides with sleight as soon as we have snow. Usually that time the 400m should be ok.
