    It was a great visit with a warm welcome and an unforgettable experience to be so close to the wild reindeers and that special family who still lives together with them.
    Even though I love animals and I hardly eat any meat, I had to taste the rendier meat and it was delicious, cooked on a fire in front of us. Back to basics, in nature with natives, A DREAM ❤️

      Hej Ann,
      so nice to hear that it was an unforgettable experience. I can imagine, since the reindeer are special to me also.
      Hope we meet again someday in Jokkmokk!
