Reindeer winter migration from Norway to Finland is the unique chance to observe nearly 3,500 Santa's helpers racing across the frozen Scandinavian plains accompanied by Sami herders during the whole way.

The animals resemble flocks of birds if you watch them from the height. Besides the landscapes are truly breathtaking, as the clouds turn pink in -15 to -20 °C.

The sunset breaks after a strenuous long trip are mesmerizing.

The migration starts after New Year and lasts for two months, virtually from January to February.
