How to get dressed for 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. 


This page should help You to get dressed the right way for the experience of the Reindeer Herder´s Day. Once You are warm and comfortable You´ll get the most out of the journey. If there are any further question, please don´t hesitate to contact us.
