Have you or someone you know dreamt of an own reindeer?
Are you looking for real-life experiences and authentic adventures in Lapland?
Together we can make those dreams come true!

Reindeer Journey is a small scale family company and a real-life reindeer farm in 

Rovaniemi, Lapland, Finland. 

You are warmly welcome to join our everyday life with reindeer by adopting one of our beloved animals or joining on our unique adventures!

We do not have any attractions build specially for visitors. Instead we offer authentic real-life experiences in wilderness, with our free ranging semi-wild reindeer herd, and beloved sleigh reindeer.  

We have paid careful attention to the safety issues, due to the Covid pandemic: At the moment, we offer only outdoor activities for small groups and private visitors. We keep safe distances in all our activities. In cars, we use face masks, and also ask you to do the same (we offer the masks). We wash and clean the equipment and all places carefully after every group. We also test our people immediately, if there is any symptoms or known risks of infection, and use the contact tracing app, developed by the Finnish Institute of Health and Welfare, to alert us if we have been exposed to corona virus. 

   

In all our journeys, we respect nature and animals. We show how to behave respectfully in nature, and make sure there is no harm or stress caused to animals.
 
All activities are planned carefully according to this. We use as little and as eco-friendly products as possible, minimize the waste, and recycle everything. Anything you bring to nature, also bring it back with you. We minimize our carbon footprint by conserving our own forests from heavy forestry. Our reindeer are free to come and go as they choose. Trained sleigh reindeer are handled with care and trained only using positive reinforcement, no force.  
    
Sights to our everyday life with reindeer are also available through reindeer adoption. By adopting a reindeer from our herd, you can follow its life year around from your home. 
Keep in touch with Lapland, and it’s beloved iconic reindeer.
