DESCRIPTION

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN LAPLAND’S HERITAGE WITH KATI!

Embark on an enriching journey through Lapland culture with Kati, a reindeer herder deeply rooted in the region. She’ll welcome you to her long-established reindeer farm, which has run in her family and the family of her husband for generations. You’ll have the opportunity to feed these emblematic Lappish animals and learn more about reindeer husbandry in Finland.

Afterwards, Kati will take you to a traditional wooden kota. Here, in the warmth of the open fire, Kati will share with you her knowledge about reindeer husbandry, and focusing on how to make simple jewelry from reindeer antlers or tanned leather. Kati indeed makes her own necklaces, wrist laces,  buttons, leather poaches and many other beautiful handicrafts.

Depending on the time of the year, she may also explain and show how she tans and cares for reindeer furs to create bags and other accessories.

While you immerse yourself in the creative process and create your own jewelry (that you can keep) from reindeer leather laces, antlers and wooden pearls, wood-fired pancakes will be prepared for you. You can enjoy them right afterwards with delicious homemade blueberry jam made directly by Kati’s family.

Join us for this enriching experience at the heart of Lapland’s simple artisan heritage, and share a special moment with Kati and her reindeers.
