  • Description


    hello my name is Magnus and I am a reindeer herder. I learned herding reindeers when I was a little kid from my father. We are a family business.

    My father, Brother and me. We are Sami. I work with my reindeer all year long, and I move with my reindeer from the mountains to the winter pasture area, because there is food for them in the winter.

    In the beginning of april I start moving into the mountain again, of course everyone can come with me and follow the reindeer. I stay in the mountains until October.
