Full description
Meet your guide at the agreed pickup location and head to the local partner's office to get dressed (if necessary). Head off on a 20-minute drive into the Arctic to the reindeer farm deep in the woods. Upon arrival, the reindeer herders will introduce themselves to you and explain how the evening will go. Get acquainted with your reindeer before hopping aboard your sleigh and heading into the dark, mystical forests of Lapland. Darkness is what is important when trying to spot the northern lights; they appear best when the skies are clear and the moon not too bright. In case the northern lights are not seen on your tour, you'll still have a lovely reindeer ride as a fond memory of your trip to Rovaniemi. Once the ride is over, head into one of the wooden huts at the farm and get to know the herders properly. Here, they will tell you more about the reindeer's yearly cycle and how life is in Lapland. Sit around a fire with a hot drink and open a discussion with the friendly herders.
