Reindeer Farm Visit
Over Christmas we spent a week in Inari, a small town in Lapland, northern Finland, about 250km north of the arctic circle. The Finnish capital of the Sami (the indigenous Reindeer herders of nothern Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia) Inari is a perfect place to try out a few winter activities and marvel at the amazing landscapes.
Given the location (Lapland has more Reindeer than people) it seems appropriate that the photos for my first post come from our visit to a local Reindeer Farm where we learnt all about these wonderful animals and the culture of the Sami people:

This is awesome!
Thank you very much 😊
Fantastic images, Mark. This grouping tells a great story. Love the black and whites and the color images just pop in the snowy background.
Thanks Jane 😊
Beautiful images!!! And you were lucky! I spent 10 days travelling around Lapland (three days near Inari and Saariselkä) and I didn’t see any local wearing the traditional sami clothes!
Well we only saw them at the Reindeer Farm 😊
