Excursions to the reindeer farm and the northern sled dog breeding kennel

We have got a small reindeer farm and a sled dog breeding kennel at our Tourism Centre.

The reindeer is a nice pet that has been living next to people for many centuries. Reindeer are hardy and unpretentious, amiable and obedient. We have got five animals at our farm now.

Northern sled dogs are amazing creatures: both agility and love for people are characteristic for them, they are intelligent and very friendly, and their soft fur and funny "smiles" leave no one indifferent! Visitors of the "Arctic Circle" kennel will meet fine representatives of such northern breeds as alascan malamute (four dogs), alascan husky (two dogs), and three lovely puppies of yakut husky.
