What Ukkohalla has to offer for vacationers

In autumn in Lapland and elsewhere in Northern Finland, reindeer are typically fed and prepared for the upcoming reindeer herding. Reindeer mustering, also known as reindeer herding, involves the collection and management of reindeer herds by their owners.

The autumn feeding period is important for reindeer, as it helps them accumulate their fat reserves before the harsh winter months. During this time, reindeer usually have access to natural grazing areas such as meadows and forests, as well as supplementary feed such as hay, grain and mineral supplements. This helps ensure that they are healthy and strong enough to withstand the cold temperatures and lack of food during the winter.

When the feeding period is over, the reindeer rounds begin. During the collections, the reindeer are collected and sorted according to their owners, and some can be sold or sent to be slaughtered. Roundups are an important part of the traditional Sami culture and way of life, and are still practiced by many reindeer herders in Lapland and other northern regions.
