Visit of Kopara reindeer farm

  Reindeer and people have a connection that is thousands of years old in what is today called Finland. First by hunting, then through domestication and herding. Today, reindeer herding is still an important economical asset for Finnish Lapland, but has also a big cultural and historical value.  Most of the techniques and the year routines of reindeer herding are the same today and more than 300 years ago.

I pick you from your accomodation in Luosto, and we head for Kopara reindeer farm (15 min drive). During the visit, we will get closer to the reindeers and the reindeer herders, learn about reindeer ecology and reindeer husbandry, and enjoy a nice relaxing leisure ride in reindeer sled. If you want, the reindeer herders can drop us in the forest, so we can come back to the farm by skis or snowshoes, and get the chance to see the reindeers in the nature, or then, we just finish the trip by sled. In any case, we will have a break around the fire, were we will enjoy a hot drink and some surprising reindeer meat snacks... (NB : you can combine this program and the visit of the national park the visitor center. see below)

DURATION : 2h30

WALKING DISTANCE : 300m (and optionally around 2km snowshoeing/skiing)

PRICE : 120€ + 50 €/person ( 110€/person for 2 participants, 90€/person for 3 participants, 80€/person for 4)

INCLUDES : private guide service, car transport, reindeer farm visit, snowshoeing/skiing gear (optional), reindeer sled ride, hot drink and reindeer meat snack around the fire.

Visit of Pyhä-Luosto national park visitor centre

The visitor center of the Pyhä-Luosto national park is located in Pyhä, 30km away from Luosto. It is relatively small, but is providing a lot of very interesting information about the local geology and ecosystems, and give you knowledge about some the most typical elements of the arctic fauna and flora.

I pick you from your accommodation in Luosto, and we drive to the visitor center.  The visit lasts around 45 min. after this, we have lunch in the cafeteria of the visitor centre. If you decide so, before returning to Luosto, you have the possibility to do some shopping. Pyhä is little bit bigger than Luosto, and there can be little bit more choice for finding souvenirs and so on... (note that you can combine this program and the visit of the reindeer farm)
