Reindeers are a big part of the Lappish lifestyle and have a long history of living side by side with the locals in the north. With this in mind, a reindeer ride is a relaxing way to both explore Finnish nature and get in touch with these beautiful animals.

Following a peaceful pace, let the reindeer lead you through the forests. Enjoy the silence of the woods and the still atmosphere all around you and let these beautiful animals guide the way.

Afterward, relax with a hot drink. Return from your adventure knowing a lot more than before about the life of the reindeer and reindeer herders in Finnish Lapland.

    Amazing! Magical is the only way to describe this activity. I was the only single person there, but it didn't matter. the Reindeer were so sweet and the journey through the forest was splendid! After, while we were warming up, the guide answered all of our questions about Reindeer and we got to feed them. a wonderful experience

    The tour was very nice! The sleigh ride lasted about 1 hour and was really fun. We went through a snowy forest with the reindeer, then we went to the yurt, where a little fire was crackling. You could warm up with hot berry juice and listen to information about reindeer and working with them in Lapland. The guides were super friendly and knew an answer to all questions. You could also feed and pet the reindeer. An all-round beautiful experience!

    We participated in the Apukka Reindeer Journey activity last week. We were picked up from SCV just before 10am and taken the short journey to Apukka by coach. On arrival we were directed indoors to collect our overalls and boots for the activity. It took around 20 minutes to get our group organised. We were then taken to the reindeer area, about 10 minute walk from the main reception. The reindeers seemed to be well looked after. As our group was so large, we were split into two. We were in the second group. The first group went off on the reindeer ride and the rest of us stayed in the kota, with a fire, hot berry juice and biscuits. Our guide gave us some background information on the reindeers and answered questions. After an hour or so, it was our turn for the reindeer ride. We had woollen blankets on the sleighs to keep ourselves warm. The guides took us through the forest and out onto a frozen lake. The scenery was stunning. It was long enough for us not to get too cold!
