Enjoy a beautiful day trip to the Sámi village of Rávttas, 45 minutes east of Abisko and experience a glimpse of the traditional lifestyle of the reindeer people during the Autumn. This exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allows you to experience the amazing lifestyle of the Sámi people and to get up close and personal with Lapland’s most iconic creature – the reindeer.


During this exciting adventure you will have an opportunity to feed the reindeer and absorb the magical relationship between the Sámi and their most cherished resource. Learn how to identify different reindeer in the herd based on personal characteristics and behaviours. You will also have the choice of guiding one of the the reindeer around with a traditional lead, just as a Sámi reindeer herder would do. Why not offer your new friend a delicious handful of Arctic moss as a way of showing your gratitude for this once-in-a-lifetime experience? This will also be a great opportunity for those wanting to practice their cowboy skills on a set of authentic reindeer antlers. This glimpse into traditional Sámi life will surely be one of the many highlights of your visit to Abisko!
