Chanel and Stevo saw the couple's imaginary Santa Claus reindeer in the wilderness where they belonged. In the end they realized their dreams and shared their stories.
It was always a dream for us to see a reindeer in the wild, and eventually we realized our dreams. For those living in the temperate climate of South Africa, it is quite unusual to stand at the summit of Norway at a temperature of -35 degrees Celsius.
Although the weather conditions are very extreme, the reindeer are vital for the Sami people living in the Arctic Region. They make their living entirely from the reindeer. While the clothes and cover are made from the post, the flesh also takes its place in different shapes.
The first thing that caught our attention when we met our Sami guide was the traditional reindeer suit he wore. In this extreme cold, it was warm with traditional costumes.
We start by riding the snow motor on the sun because this is really the only way to get around. We're looking for the reindeer's signature when we leave.
We passed through the frozen lakes and continued on our way, passing through the forests of the Arctic Region and finding the sign of the reindeer we dreamed about for years after 3 hours. A reindeer ...
This particular herd is quite large, we do not know how much it is in numbers. Because it seems rude to ask how many reindeer it is to Sam's. Imagine someone asking you how much money you have in your bank account.
Then the shepherds rolled a reindeer behind their snowmobile with their dogs and headed for Lavvu, the traditional Sami tent for dinner. We spent an hour on the road with Ren.
We arrived at your traditional Sami tent for dinner. In the center of the Sami tents the fire burns, the inside is warm ...
We made our traditional food and drank our coffee which perfectly complemented this experience.
