It is a very nice but very small farm situated in front of the Husky Park, in the Santa Clauss Village.

You can visit the farm itself in 15/20mn.

We selected the 1h00 walk with Alpagas as the Reindeer is accessible only form +10 years old and Alpagas +8 years.

It was a very nice walk and great thing is that you can ask as well a guide in your language before the visit. It was in French for us and it's very important to know more about Lapland and the animals if you are not comfortable in English.

For Alapagas, the only thing is that they have only 3 Alpagas available so if you book for 4 people as an example, you will need to switch guide at mid-trip. It is not a big deal but important to know as the cost is the same : 45€/P. even if you walk only half way with an Alpaga...

It is definitely a Must Visit if you come with Kids :-)

We booked the private tour and it was so worth it. We had about 90 minutes where we were shown around, we could feed and pet all animals (chickens, rabbits, alpacas, sheep, reindeers). The farm guardians explained a lot about the animals and we learned plenty. They had prepared an open fire where we could roast sausages and warm up at the end of the tour. They also served us mulled wine (glögi).

The farm can be visited also without a tour, yet I think those were money well spent to really enjoy the place. I recommend the tour. The guardians were very kind and nice, we built a fantastic memory of this trip!

We happen to saw some flyers of The Elf Farm Yard while we were exploring sta claus village and i am glad we did. With just €15 we were able to spend time with their animals and pet them. We are all adults in our group but we really enjoyed being up close with the reindeers. The elves are knowledgeable and happy to share fun facts and answer even our weirdest questions. We also had the chance to try the traditional ski and despite several slips we still had so much fun. Personally my favourite was the fact that they have a hut (kota) where we were able to have a campfire. We had a good time roasting sausages and marshmallows over the fire.

The staff are incredibly accommodating and friendly and helpful and kind. Thank you dear elves!

We went here to have a break from driving and it was perfect. It is a small place run by a family with alpacas, rabbits, sheeps, a goat and reindeers. Sounds like little, but added to that a great personel and the fact that the animals are really kind made the visit special. We were able to feed and scratch the animals, which was fun for an adult too. My personal favorite was the goat that liked people and attention a lot.

We had so much fun walking the reindeer! The staff were super friendly and kind. We got there for the last tour and they didn't rush us at all! After our reindeer walk they let us look around the rest of the farm even though it was closing time. We would definitely recommend this farm!!

This place is super nice with some animals. Activities can be organized with them, including walks and feeding. We walked the alpacas for an hour and we fed both alpacas and reindeer. We grilled marshmallows and you can grill sausages as well. A great activity when it is minus 17.

We really enjoyed our time there. We saw the animals and fed the reindeers and alpacas. We had fun sliding in the snow and on the second time we tried the cross country skiing. It is a great place for families.

Best value for money and very fun, even for adults! We could get up close, pet and feed the reindeers and meet other kind and calm domestic animals such as alpacas, bunnies and goats. Later, we got to do a small session of cross-country skiing and sledding. The staffs were so kind and friendly too. Highly recommend a short visit if you’re visiting Santa Claus Village!

Our family of 4 with 2 small kids loved this place. It is just a small area but the perfect size for kids. There was a little scavenger hunt that they could do on stick horses and get a candy cane when they finished, a teepee that had a fire in the middle where you could buy marshmallows and sausages to roast too. It was perfect for lunch. All the animals had food nearby that you could feed them and all the animals were friendly. There was an adorable baby reindeer too! There was also a small play area with swings and a sand box for kids. I don't know that families without kids or older kids would enjoy this as much, but our kids loved it ages 1.5 and 4.
