  6. 6. 26 December 2013 The reindeer is an icon of Finnish Lapland. A reindeer sleigh ride is worth combining with a visit to a nearby reindeer farm in Rovaniemi, Lapland. An essential part of a true Lappish holiday experience and we really enjoy this experience. An ideal experience for those wishing to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the Lapland scenery and the interaction with these beautiful animals.
  7. 7. 26 December 2013 Lappish ceremony before enjoying reindeer sleigh ride, as a confirmation of this ceremony the Spirit of Fire marks each attendant with a protecting sign.
  8. 8. Reindeer are naturally timid animals but prior to the arrival of the snowmobile have been the main mode of transport for centuries. Although most reindeer roam freely around Lapland, some are kept trained for sleigh rides.
