IN A REINDEER CARAVAN
In Lapland, life is in harmony with harsh nature - including the animals. Without this harmony, Lapland would not be Lapland. You can experience this richly and uniquely in many different ways. A reindeer caravan has been harnessed for you in the LuontoLoma yard garden ready for your journey into the silent wilderness. Guided by a Sami reindeer herder, you can harness your reindeer yourself... and drive it along the journey. .
The reindeer will take you and your guests across the enchanting snowy white scenery. The frost glistens like diamonds on the shoulders of the pine trees. Somewhere, a raven caws. You sit warmly and comfortably on reindeer skins in a sleigh. Reindeer bells gently ring as their hooves crunch through the snow. When the reindeer caravan returns to the yard, the experience of a warm "kota" awaits you. Enjoy some crowberry juice while a reindeer herder happily tells you stories of his life in the wilds of Lapland.
Duration: 2 hours
AN EVENING OF LAPPISH MAGIC IN A "KOTA"
The atmosphere created by stories and a campfire in a Lappish "kota" affect even the busiest traveller. You can relax and totally forget the worries of everyday life. Build up your experiences with a meal served by LuontoLoma - all year round. We have something for every taste.

Four winds soup and unleavened bread
We serve mineral water with your meal. If you wish for something stronger alcoholic drinks, we can arrange that by prior arrangements. Special diets by prior arrangement.
