Why visit the Jaakkola farm?

Jaakkola's Reindeer Farm is a perfect destination for both FIT-customers and fixed groups. We've got over 20 years of experience in running our business in reindeer tourism, and we have lived alongside reindeer since we were children. We have a real reindeer farm, so during the visit people not only get to acquaint with our reindeer but also the everyday life of us as a reindeer farmers and not to mention the Sámi way of life. During the snow-free period we arrange guided farm visits, kota meals, cooking course programmes, reindeer trekkings and tailor-made programmes for groups. In the winter we arrange different sorts of reindeer safaris of varying lengths, along with sleigh ride excursions and ice-fishing safaris by reindeer.

We're full of ideas and creativity as well - capable of easily planning the sort of programme that offers history and folklore in just the right proportion, with entertainment thrown in - and all in the same package. Over the years, we've designed and realized the most interesting programmes for corporate groups, for example, or special programmes for small groups looking for unique experiences. Some of these have left a permanent impression on us as well, and it is still a pleasure to recall them today, long after the fact.   

 
 

For us, it's important to meet customers as individuals and serve them with real Lapp hospitality. We always strive not only to fulfil all expectations but to exceed them. Thousands of people visit us annually, some of whom return as our guests year after year. We're flexible, and it's easy to do cooperation if our partners appreciate it, too.  We collaborate with dozens of various travel operators and some of our customer relationships are as old as the enterprise we run. Our local partnership network is comprehensive, so we're able to serve even large groups with their various wishes. If something's missing on our website, it doesn't mean we can't arrange it. For instance, we recently arranged, through our collaborative network, a tailor-made theme dinner for 250 guests - all arriving at the same time. We also cooperate with local transport enterprises, so we can also include coach transportation in your program package in order to ease your work.

The safety of our services has first-priority importance for us. We are developing our know-how continuously and ensuring that we have excellent readiness to act with our customers and animals, both under challenging circumstances and in varying weather conditions. We maintain our first-aid skills by means of courses each year, including safety training for our staff.

We also want to point out that we have an ideal location to stop by for a lunch or short visit the groups heading from Rovaniemi to North and other way around. Our farm is located only 10 minute´s drive from E75 (in a half way of Rovaniemi and Saariselkä or Levi). Feel free to contact us. We are glad to tell more about our services.
