I really enjoyed my trip up the mountain to feed and see the reindeer. I found the guide to be passionate and knowledgeable and I learned a lot. Feeding the reindeer was a fab experience - very tickly though! Highly recommend.

Fantastic place to meet and hand-feed reindeer. Short walk up a beautiful woodland trail with knowledgeable reindeer herders. Wonderful experience for children and adults.

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip, as did our children aged 9 and 6. A short car journey is required from the ticket office to the start point, so allow a few minutes extra for that. After you’ve met your guide (Hen was excellent by the...More
