Unleash your inner child and join us for Snow Fun at Vasara Reindeer Ranch! Come alone, come as a couple, or take your kids, or a group of friends with you, to experience Winter Wonderland.
With or without kids, with previous or with no experience - you can now delight in a range of typical Finnish winter fun and games. Cross-country skiing, ice fishing , snowshoeing for starters. Move on to try your skills with the kick-sledge, a Finnish "man-powered" winter vehicle. Go for some pure sliding fun on the toboggan run. Take a swing ride on the Finnish sleigh-go-round, which is an old-fashioned carousel on ice. Challenge your travelling companions to a snowball fight. Test the reindeer herder's most important tool, the reindeer lasso which we call "suopunki", and take a test drive on his most important vehicle, the snowmobile.
Take a moment to explore the Bealljegoahti, the traditional dwelling of the Sámi people in the bygone days. Take a seat in the cozy Gáttegoahti on the lake shore, enjoy the glow of the open fire and feast your eyes on the surrounding winter scenery. Observe the reindeer as they roam and rest on the Ranch grounds.
The Stuorragoahti is the large hut where you can warm up and relax. Sámi "Joik" music plays in the background, and there are old Sámi artifacts and photographs of the Vasara family history to view, a hot beverage to sip and a tasty pastry to savor. (A hot meal is available upon advance notice.)
At the end of this excursion you are likely to agree that there's no fun like Snow Fun!
