  • If I don't have time to join the tour can I come see the reindeer by myself?
    In order to come to our camp we require our guests to book one of our tours. We don’t have staff members at all times at the camp, therefore we can only receive visitors during the tours.

    Own pets are not allowed at the reindeer camp. We want to ensure the safety of our reindeer, as they might get scared of dogs at the camp.
  • Can I bring an assistance dog to the camp?
    Assistance dogs coming to the camp is not a problem. The dog should however stay out of the fence where the reindeer are, so they don't get scared.
