Reindeer calf ear 

marking experience

The Sami reindeer herders have always followed the natural rhythm when herding reindeer. The reindeer year starts in May when reindeer calves are born. From midsummer, the reindeer are gathered into corrals, where the new calves are marked by cutting a pattern into their ear with a knife. All the Sami reindeer herders have their own unique earmark for their reindeer. The Sami family welcomes you to join them in this unique period and to experience this old tradition.
