Experience the life of a Sámi reindeer herder and have a taste of reindeer herder’s working day. First you will have a transfer from Hotel Korpikartano to the home of the reindeer herder and after that he will drive you to the forest with a snowmobile and sledge. Reindeer are wandering freely in the forest and you have to find them first.
You can help your host feeding the reindeer and after work sit down by the open fire and just relax. Enjoy coffee made traditionally on open fire and feel free to ask more questions about the life of the reindeer herder. During the visit you will learn facts about the reindeer herding, sámi culture and a life style in Lapland.
Come and experience the luxury of silence!
TASTE NATURE AND MEET THE SILENCE!
Hotel Korpikartano is located in a small reindeer herding village called Menesjärvi. Inari village, the centre of Sami culture in Lapland is only 30 minutes drive away.
Korpikartano was once a Sami village school, but since 2009 it has opened its doors to guests. In Hotel Korpikartano (name meaning the mansion in the wilderness) you can experience the luxury of silence in beautiful natural surroundings and cosy rustic accommodation.
Our nature hotel is situated by Lake Menesjärvi and surrounded by beautiful landscapes which change throughout the year! The National Park Lemmenjoki, the largest in Finland is very close by.
Hotel Korpikartano is ideal for outdoor and nature minded guests and for those who are looking for peace and relaxation and the chance to enjoy some outdoor adventures!
Hotel Korpikartano is an ideal place to see the Northern Lights, since there are no light pollution. You are able to see them already from the hotel yard. You can also eg. join for a husky safari, reindeer farm visit, try winter fishing or learn more about Sami culture.
