to enjoy your stay in our authentic and
reindeer farm in Rovaniemi, Lapland

Poro-Pekan Pirtti reindeer farm has a long history from the 19th century, a family-owned company started in 2004. 

Here is some authentic greetings from our guestbook.

As you can see Poro-Pekan Pirtti (translation in english: Reindeer Pekka`s House) is worth your time!

The old main house and our accommodation buildings are in the same yard and the area is classified as "A Culture Historical traditional landscape".

Poro-Pekan Pirtti and its old main house is situated in Rovaniemi, 40 minutes from the city centre in a small village called Patokoski near the river Ounasjoki.

In the old main house there is a very special atmosphere and Lappish items. During your visit to our reindeer farm we will tell you about the history of the house, reindeer herding and also about the life of the reindeer. 

Our old main house is usually open only on orders. That's why it is a very private place. It is possible to order some meals during your visit or stay. We organize different celebration events like birthdays and wedding parties. We also have catering.

Sometimes on Saturday evenings we have open Karaoke nights for local people but also for our guests. About these nights we inform in Facebook and Instagram.

Grandfather’s father already started our reindeer farm and our grandchildren are the 6th generation in the farm.

Our farm in the countryside is very peaceful, we have a lot of space and the landscape is very open . Nature is also very close.

Accommodation in the yard area with view to the river Ounasjoki.

Our location in the North of the Arctic Circle and our very open view and the open sky give very good possibilities to see the Northern lights, Aurora Borealis.

The sky is dark enough in the evenings and during the night time from the beginning of September to the end of March.

Peace and quiet

The campfire places in the riverbank for hunting the Northern Lights.

The visit to the reindeer farm

When you visit our reindeer farm we will visit the old main house. There we will tell about the history of the house and the reindeer farm. There are a lot of old items and old pictures. You also hear about reindeer herding. We will serve you dinner or hot berry juice with some cookies, depending on the order.

Then we go to the reindeer fence and you can feed the reindeer with lichen, which is the favorite food for the reindeer. You have time to watch them and see how nice and cute animals they are. You will get a lot of information about them.
