It might be difficult to learn to understand reindeer by just seeing them in the traffic. However, every reindeer is an individual with their own character and preferences. Actually, we have 10 000 of these individuals in Utsjoki.
When you encounter reindeer in the wilderness, it is recommended to keep your distance as they’re easily scared. Therefore, it is best to get to know the reindeer by visiting a reindeer farm, where the reindeer are used to people. Just to spend time close to the reindeer is relaxing. How about feeding the reindeer or taking a reindeer sleigh ride to watch the Northern Lights?
