  • We greatly appreciated the visit of the farm of Petri. Was very well received at the farm, starting point of the day. Petri generously lent us extra clothes so that we do not have cold in the sleigh. Then let's go to the meeting of his reindeer walking in freedom on its huge field. To do 10km; Petri takes us on a sled pulled by his snowmobile. On-site, in the middle of the forest, the rennes crowd to eat the sweets we brought them. This is an opportunity to see reindeer very closely; Some allow themselves to stroke the back but not too long, they remain still wary and wild. But they are not afraid of our presence. We share then (with the band) coffee / tea with cupcakes around the fire, and Petri talks about his farm, his profession of Sami culture. When we come back, made us visit his house, and last step: we tried the art of catching a reindeer with a lasso! It's a great experience, very human and exotic. It attaches quickly to this Sami culture when Petri tells it to us, and we almost want to have a farm of rennes at the end of the day!

  • This is not to perform a sled ride pulled by a reindeer like some safaris, but to visit a working farm. We went with a sled pulled by a snowmobile, across frozen lake, Woods to join a herd of hundreds of reindeer. Petri Mattus distributes food to the reindeer in a circle so that they isolate themselves from each other. He explains the story of his farm and its exploitation. We drink to taste tea, coffee with biscuits. Return visitors make their cold outfits and the hostess explains the Sami history and their location in Lapland within 3 countries.

  • On the 11/3 our car got stuck in the snow near the entrance of his farm. He was so kind when we asked him to help us. Thanks a lot.
  • Unforgettable and authentic Sami/Finnish experience. Petri was a welcoming and wonderful guide/host that loved sharing his animals and way of life with us. The small group atmosphere made it even more special. Despite a cold day, his winter gear and hot drinks kept us warm. Well worth every penny.
  • Sámi reindeer herder Petri Mattus invites you to be his guest. Experience a few hours with him in the wilderness with his reindeer. During the winter months you may join the herder to feed the herd. Serves only on Reservation.
  • On a pristine place, in a snow-white world, is a beautiful human being you. This Sami still lives close to nature. On extremely sympathetic way he tells about his life with the reindeer. Makes delicious coffee over a wood fire, and knispert, while the snow under your feet, do you believe that the good comes with this world. You will receive afterwards in his house, and is proud of what he has. Nice man, on a beautiful, lonely place in nature.
