What travelers say:

When you arrive in Rovaniemi, the hometown of Santa Claus in the Arctic Circle, how can you not meet the reindeer, Santa’s closest friend, and experience the fun of reindeer pulling a sleigh? After lunch, we went to the reindeer farm together to get close to this docile animal, and get a deep understanding of the life of Finnish Laplandians and various ecology in the Arctic Circle.
