Reindeer are part of the landscape in Enontekiö and form a key source of livelihood in the region. They are part of everyday life throughout the seasons.
The companies that provide farm visits usually make their livelihood with reindeer herding, but they are also happy to tell you about their work, annual cycle of life and reindeer herding in the past and today.
Depending on the farm, you might get to see life on the farm, feed the reindeer and go on a sleigh ride.
If the time is right, you can also get to join the herders in the wilderness and see the demands of their work place. This gives you a chance to see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.
Respect for the animals and nature is always a must.
