Admire the barren yet beautiful scenery through the eyes of a reindeer. This agile, long-legged animal sheds its antlers and grows new, larger ones every year. It is well adapted to the northern environment. The information boards tell you about reindeer, the original inhabitants of the northern wilderness, which people domesticated from the Eurasian tundra reindeer.
