Jukkasjärvi - Reindeer encounter (Raidu)


When you visit Jukkasjärvi, you also visit Sápmi – the Sámi people’s own name of their land.

Your guide will pick you up at the Ice Hotel and together you will travel to a Sami reindeer farm. Here you will learn about the Sami people’s customs and the practical importance about reindeer throughout the various seasons. You can try to drive a reindeer sled and hand-feed the curious reindeer. In a traditional Sami hut you will drink coffee and taste suovas, the Sámi national dish, served around the open fire.
