Renskiljning in Nattavaara today

About 10kms outside Nattavaara today we had  the annual Renskiljning.

The Reindeer are herded into a handling facility and each Sami family removes their own animals from the herd to feed and care for during the winter.

Here are a few pictures from today;

  1. Very cool. When we were living in near the arctic circle in Alaska we had two different herds that would come around us at various time of the year. I miss that.
