Full description

Reindeers are a big part of the Lappish lifestyle and have a long history of living side by side with the locals in the north. With this in mind, a reindeer ride is a relaxing way to both explore Finnish nature and get in touch with these beautiful animals.

Following a peaceful pace, let the reindeer lead you through the forests. Enjoy the silence of the woods and the still atmosphere all around you and let these beautiful animals guide the way.

Afterward, relax with a hot drink. Return from your adventure knowing a lot more than before about the life of the reindeer and reindeer herders in Finnish Lapland.

    Parmi toutes les activités que nous avons fait à Rovaniemi, celle-ci était pour nous la meilleure. Les animaux sont très bien traités, les paysages étaient magnifiques et la balade était bien relaxante. La pause déjeuner à mi-chemin était la bienvenue avec de bonnes saucisses et des explications intéressantes sur les rennes.

    This is the third time I have come to Rovaniemi and the two previous times I took a “Rennes walk” type activity with another operator, it was good but too short the walk was only a few meters. With Apukka it's a real ride! It's just great and fun, you really get what you pay for, the little campfire in the teepee, grilling sausages and everything is really great; and then we are equipped from head to toe we are not cold at all! I highly recommend ! And then the support with the transfer is great, you don't have to stress about how to get there!

    The transport was uncomplicated, we arrived on time and were picked up again on time. There was winter clothing included (socks, shoes, snow suits, gloves). Sleigh ride was generous and half way there was hot drinks, pastries and sausages. If you would like a vegan alternative, you must indicate this when booking! The guides (one was the owner of the animals) were very nice and spoke very good English. They patiently answered all questions about the animals. Accommodation of the animals seemed species-appropriate.
