Reindeer farm visit
Welcome to see how our reindeers are doing at the farm.
Excited young reindeers and experienced older reindeers are showing you their half-wild nature.
We will explain you the story of reindeers, while enjoying tasty traditional coffee made on fire, as well as berry juice & home made buns.
Driving a reindeer is traditional Lappish way of transportation. Back in time sledge was 1-seated and reindeers was directed with one rope. Nowadays reindeer rides are mostly hobby and experience for traveller. Instead of 1-seated sledge we use bigger sledge with two ropes for controlling. Normally driving reindeers are running in a line, when they follow each others.
Reindeer education is started when reindeer is on its second year. Practice begin at the farm where we are walking around the fields, next to the houses, next to children, to make them comfortable. Reward is always there, like with dogs food is always main priority.
When reindeer feels comfortable, we will put the harness on it which can be attached to a sledge. First times the sledge will be further away from the reindeer until he is comfy with human sounds and reactions. After that sledge is just meter away from reindeer.
Some reindeers can be trained by using wooden poles instead of ropes in the harness. It all depends on the nature of reindeer, some are calm and some are cranky. We teach how to follow each others, normally most calm and experienced reindeer is leading the line.
Way of education has to be planned well for every reindeer - other learns quicker than other. But with each reindeer it is interesting and rewarding journey to gain the trust of the reindeer. Personally i talk a lot to a reindeer, explain my days, talk about weather, what ever comes to mind. Its therapic!
