We were lucky to have a lot of snow during the christmas holidays but Janyary-February has been very warm and now there is not enough snow on the snowmobile routes to make snowmobile safaris. We have enough snow for the short mini snowmobile route for children. Also the reindeer programs are running every day regardless of the weather.

Now we are waiting for enough snow and ice so that we can start the winter activities. The reindeers are moving back to Porokylä artound christmas time.
Ther reindeers are moving to their summer place tomorrow. This summer we will have new summer guests: sheep. We will write more about about this later. The reindeer are returning to Porosalmi next winter season.
It will most likely be possible to drive with snowmobiles for a couple of day more. The weather is warm during the day but the weather forecast predicts cold nights next week. There is still quite a lot of snow in the forest.
The cafeteria is open today for everyone 10-15 without previous booking. For children mini snowmobile ride 10 e/child. Toboggan slide and navel sled next to the cafeteria. Welcome! PS Leave your car in Järvisydän parking and walk to the reindeer village.
It has been snowing a lot the past days and now the snowmobile routes are ready . You can book a snowmobilse safari starting from tomorrow, January 2nd.
On the winter holiday weeks we have guided excursions daily. You can also visit Porokylä just to feed the reindeer. Please buy a bag of Reindeer moss from the Reindeer hut. (Reindeer can not be fed with anything else since their stomachs are very sensitive.)
The lake is free of ice and Summer has started in Porokylä, finally!
