Reindeer

Our reindeer live in the wild in summer, therefore we wait until they come back home in December. They agree to work for us as long as they get enough food to survive the tough winter. Formula is our mascot reindeer who is loved by all children, because they can pet him or feed him with bread even mouth to mouth. Pusku, another of our reindeer, needs to be given a lot of weight to pull to be slowed down. Jallu, on the other hand, pretends to be a relaxed pensioner, who has seen it all, but you never know. Tahra (Stain), is almost white, like a prince. Tynnyri (Barrel), is a hard worker who does not try to trick you. Kömmönokka knows the routine too. Velho (Wizzard) and Tornado have their career in front of them.

Reindeer are semi-wild animals therefore dress warmly, you never know what kind of trip they have planned for you.

Rounding up of reindeer

This is where you can see hundreds of reindeer on the same spot and take pictures of them. We will drive from Levi to the round up fence; the return trip will be between 100 and 150 km. We will spend the whole day outdoors, although in some places there is a reindeer herders` hut. We will witness how reindeer are driven first into the holding pen, then to the churn in several goes and finally they are caught either by hand or lasso and placed into offices depending on whether they will be released or utilized. As many may have idealized reindeer we may avoid situations where they are slaughtered although that is ultimately their destiny. During the day we will find some time to have a break to grill sausages, eat sandwiches and enjoy some hot drinks. When all of the reindeer have been caught, you have taken photos and tried out what we do, we will head back. You will be given a small present to remind you the experience.
