Driving a reindeer through the wintery forest is a breathtaking experience. On this safari you have a chance to enjoy the nature and be amazed how reindeer go through the wilderness.
Before the safari the guide will give you a driving lesson and tell you how to handle the reindeer. After the lesson you will get your own reindeer and drive it yourself behind the guide. Driving a reindeer and sleigh is quite simple and very relaxing way to move in the wintery forest. Children will be seated with a parent in the same sleigh.
Along the way you will have couple stops. First the female and calf reindeer needs to be fed. On a photo stop you can have photos of you and reindeer and maybe take a pic for next Christmas card. You will also stop in Lappish hut and enjoy sausage, hot drinks and bun.
This evening, you will join a Northern Lights excursion by snow shoes. When the darkness falls over the Arctic Circle, put on the snowshoes and head out to the forest.
Even though polar night is on and the sun goes down early, the snowy forest is never completely dark. After a short walk,you will get out from the street lights, your eyes will get used to the darkness and you start to see without the lights. Normally you will walk without any headlights. Pure white snow, stars, moon and sometimes even the Auroras lights up the way.
The goal on the walk is to find a perfect, dark and quiet spot in the forest. Those are the few key things when chasing the Northern Lights.
