  • We were first home visit to the reindeer in the paddock and read some information about them. Then we walked about 15 min in the nature reserve to go to the meeting of a large herd of reindeer in freedom. We had the opportunity to see them up close, caress them, give them to eat and take great pictures. It was magical. Recommended for all friends of animals!

  • We were lucky to arrive just as a tour was leaving, as hadn't caked the schedule in advance. So check it! Short 5 min drive in convoy to the car park, then a great 15 minute hike through the wildernes...  more »

  • The reindeer are lovely and very friendly. Bit of a walk to get to them, mention that because it's proper off road, wear boots / Wellington boots. You get a great enthusiastic talk about the reindeer. The paddock by the centre is really small and probably not worth them effort. Get out onto the hills with expert guide if you can.
  • What a fabulous day out! Kids love it and adults feel like kids again. A nice little walk gets you to the Reindeer natural hilltop area where you get to feed and meet them. The paddock at the actual centre is a great feature and is fantastic for kids.
  • This was simply the best experience. Did the guided walk to feed the reindeer on a stunning October day. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. I could have stayed all day!
  • Amazing place! Totally amazing! Adorable reindeer, amazing views on the walk up to the Paddock, and feeding the reindeer is incredible! ^_^
  • We had a great time at the reindeer center. The staff was very helpful and answered all of questions with great authority. We did the Paddock visit, but I hear the hill walk is the best. The reindeer in the paddocks are well looked after and cared for; the kiddos had a great time learning about reindeer and the reindeer herders from around the world.
