The best part of the visit was to see reindeer. Apart from that there was not a lot to see although there is a shop and a small cafe

Quite expensive for what it is, but at least you are supporting the local Sami people. Really enjoyed feeding the reindeer.

We went here after a reindeer trip at the ice hotel and it was very interesting but we were so cold after the trek we probably didn't look round it as much as we could have

Opened My Eyes And Mind To The Indigenous Sami People, These are the people who did not get mentioned U till we discovered the at the Reinder Ranch, born and bread not settlers but indigenous, original inhabitants , the museum opens their world and ways to us. A must visit 45 minutes well spent visit

Get close and personal to reindeers-once you've fed them, they'll be off!! Lady in the shop is very helpful and is knowledgeable about the Sami way of life.

I guess this might be more fun in summer. It being open air it was very cold. Interesting though. We didn't try the cafe. Enjoyed feeding the reindeer, but watch out for the antlers.

When you stay in a warm toerist hotel you should inform yourself how people managed to survive and enjoy their hard lives in the cold. Combine with a reindeer rally! They really want to run! You may easely fall off! Friendly people.

Nice and interesting but a bit small compared to the price for the entrance, it expleins rather well the husbandry of the reindeers in northern Sweden but there is not much to see

This is part of the excursions the hotel provides which you have to pay for. Sit about 10 people in a sleigh being pulled by a snowmobile. Little huts here. Informative.
