Herd of reindeer in Swedish Lapland


We had a good time with him enjoying the spectacle of seeing hundreds of reindeer around us. The shepherd was depositing his food in a hole - basically lichen - and the animals flocked respecting the food rations and the turn for each one. They seemed to demonstrate their Swedish nationality because of their applied way of respecting their time and space so that everyone could enjoy their delicacy.

We were in the middle of the show enjoying the stage and taking thousands of photos. The sky with hardly any clouds and a sun worthy of Malaga welcomed us to a Lapland difficult to imagine before embarking on the trip.

When the reindeer feast ended, it was ours. The Sami shepherd offered us some blankets to rest on the snow and prepared to offer us our "fica" - the pica pica of the Sami of Lapland. He took out a small pan and began to fry reindeer meat. He offered us a kind of kebab with the meat of this animal that was delicious. Together with a coffee served in a wooden cup, he told us about the daily life of a Sami shepherd in Swedish Lapland in the 21st century. The sun was shining, it was barely cold and the reindeer sandwich and the talk came in wonderfully.
