How to get dressed for the Reindeer Herder´s Day
You will travel to the reindeer herd in a sledge pulled by a snowmobile. You will snuggle on warm reindeer skins and under blankets, but the draft is still cold. The sledge ride will last 10-30 minutes depending on the location of the reindeer.
The temperature can vary from around zero to really cold temperatures like -30 °C. The colder it is the more layers of clothing you will need. We will equip you with overalls, helmets, boots, woolen mittens and socks. You should take care of the layers under the overall you self.
