SHALL WE GO AND PACK?
Sami Reindeer Herder Ear-Marking Break
Each summer the Sami reindeer herders of Northern Scandinavia face the challenge of ear-marking each of the new calves born to their herd. Using the ancient mark of their family, the small carvings made in the ears allow the herders to recognise their herd whilst they graze. It’s a daunting task given the number of reindeer they are responsible for and the vast distances they cover as they graze across the mountain pastures north of the Arctic Circle. You can join reindeer herder Johan Aslak Logje and his wife in the mountains to help with the task of ear-marking their calves in an unforgettable trip. The working holiday is suitable for families and adventurers looking for a hands-on and genuine insight into how the Sami people live and work with their reindeer.
Available between 10 August - 5 September
