Our lovely guide picked us up from our hotel. First we visited a reindeer farm and got to learn a lot about them, while feeding them in the paddock and afterwards in kota having a hot drink. Then we jumped in the canoes at the same farm and paddled for an hour or so. It was stunning. Then it was time to head back home.

We had a really great day at the reindeerfarm, spendig the beginning of the tour feeding the animals and having coffee/tea and cookies at the campfire. The atmosphere was amazing & we loved listening to the interesting things the owner of the farm told us about! Afterwards the guide gave us instructions on how to canoe before we went out on the lake to discover the beautiful landscape. During the whole adventure our guide took care of taking snapshots with the camera and even with the drone - it was such a great day & we would highly recommend this daytrip to everyone!
