Discover Fermes de rennes Finland

The reindeer is the most common animal in Finnish Lapland. There are literally thousands of them. They can be seen in nature, in the middle of the forests or on the edge of the roads, but some Laplanders use them to earn a living. For Laplanders, breeding reindeer is an ancestral activity. When alive, reindeer can be used to pull sleighs on hunting safaris. When their antlers fall off, they are used to create pieces of art. Once dead, the reindeer is used as meat. Their hide is also used to make decorations and warm clothes. It is possible to meet breeders on reindeer farms that are often isolated in nature. A unique experience!
