Ever wondered what is like for reindeer herders during the summer? What do they do when they are not working? Have you ever dreamed of joining them, even for a day? Well now it’s possible!

What to expect?

Hey, you Rovaniemi traveler! We’re a local reindeer herder family from Rovaniemi, Lapland, Finland. With us, you’ll get to know the tradition of Lappish reindeer herding at our family farm. Reindeer herding is our lifestyle, and with us, you’ll experience the traditional, calm, but modern reindeer herding culture. Our farm is located in a remote location at the furthest corner of Rovaniemi, far beyond the street lights and the facilities of modern life.

Fishing day program:

  • Day starts with a pickup, usually at 10 am
  • Driving trip to our home is 90 km and takes about 1.5 hours
  • We start hiking from our place with the reindeer and our backpacks to a nearby river. Hiking is about 5 km and takes 1.5 hours
  • At the river, we set up a camp, and start fishing, later on, we cook a soup lunch (hopefully from fresh fish)
  • We start the hike back to our place at about 3:30 pm
  • After a good meal, we head back to Rovaniemi, where we usually arrive at about 7 pm
