Where to stay?
If you don’t want to go back to town, we’ll figure something out. There are several guest houses near our reindeer yard

Will there be Northern Lights?
Unfortunately, we have no control over nature. Sometimes it happens that despite all good predictions the Northern Lights hide. If the weather is bad, we will warn you in advance. We have no goal just to make money. We want you to be satisfied
03
What age can you visit the reindeer yard?
No age limit
Do you have discounts?
Yes, all children under 5 visit free excursions. 10% discount for pensioners when presenting a document
What should I take?
Dress warmly. For the local Sami, the frost of -30 ° is not a reason to take out a winter coat, but guests from the midland cities are freezing. Camera and tripod. The Northern Lights look incredibly beautiful, but if you want to capture this beauty in a photo, you need a long exposure camera and a tripod, then the photo will turn out like on a promotional poster. Sometimes a smartphone isn’t enough
Do I need to pay extra money on the spot?
There’s no extra money on the spot
