We arrived at the farm (4 adults and 4 children age 8, 6, 6 and 3) just as the sun was setting. Mika greeted us and explained what he had planned for us. First we rode the reindeer. We all had a fabulous time, the kids thoughrouly enjoyed it. Then we spent some time feeding the baby reindeers, fabulous experience. Mika then lit the barbecue where we gathered around the fire to learn more about the history of the farm and the local culture. Mika was very knowledgeable and patient with the kids, specially with the 3 yrs old, who was always asking "why?" We visited the farm shop, where all products were produced locally by their family, and we got our reindeer driving licence. We all had a great time and would definitely recommend the experience!

We had a very good time with Mika the owner of the farm. We fed the reindeer and he told us all about them. Then he showed us his old house explaining how they used to live in the past. Mika was very nice and interesting.

We visited the Palosaari Reindeer and Fishing Farm to see some reindeer's. The current owner of the farm greeted us and took us to see the reindeer's. There were four domesticated ones whom we were able to feed and pet; it was fun. The owner told us about the reindeer's and why they aren't among the others in the forest. We were offered juice and campfire coffee and some home made biscuits in a goahti. The campfire coffee always tastes so good. We were told more about reinseer's and reindeer herding as a profession. The visit to the Palosaari Reindeer and Fishing Farm was very educating. There is a small shop from where one can buy some herb and reindeer products.

Visited the farm as our first stop during a weekend to Ruka. Mika met us in the arrivals lounge at the airport and then drove us to the farm. Spent a couple of hours riding reindeer sleds, feeding reindeer and learning about reindeers and reindeer farming followed by time in a traditional reindeer farmers house drinking hot drinks and eating cookies and sausages. Received our reindeer driving licences and then Mika took us onward to our hotel in Ruka. Mika is an excellent guide - he is really friendly & knowledgeable about the reindeers and patiently answered questions from the kids (where is Rudolph etc.) We booked directly and it was significantly better value than going via one of the tour operators - we had a private visit for the same price as group trips to other farms!
