Santa reindeers home is definitely one of the best places we’ve visited. They are so adorable and friendly. They bring positive energy. If you come to Santa Village , reindeers are must see. People are so kind there and treat all reindeers like their children...More

For a very affordable price you get to feed and pet the friendly reindeer. Also, the staff was very friendly and the lady knew a lot about the reindeer's personalities and behavior.

It's a great chance not only to feed the reindeers, but also learn about their daily life. The guide is eager to answer any questions about the reindeers, such as what they eat, where they live, and even their individual characters.

Thank you for your kind words. I find these animals so fascinating, there is no days that I wouldn't learn something new about them, if not as a species then as an individual.

Excellent feed, meet and greet the reindeer. We knew nothing about reindeer and our guide was very informative and enthusiastic. Great experience.

For just €5, you can feed the reindeers, pet them, take photos with them. The guides will provide you food to feed them. They are well behaved as well. Except for Polar Bear. He’s a little curious 😂
