Lapland Camp Björkträsk
In the rear area of the Sababurg Animal Park, amidst the northern Hessian Reinhardswald forest, lies the Lapplandlager Björkträsk. The rustic location of the authentically equipped Lavvo camp (Lavvo = tent) of the Sami people in the untouched birch forest (Birke = Swedish "Björk"), along with the integrated reindeer facility, creates an unforgettable Nordic experience.
Reindeer in the Lapland Camp "Björkträsk"
Our reindeer belong to the subspecies of Tundra reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus).
Even today, this species of deer remains an important part of the livelihood of the Sami people of Lapland. In addition to the thousands of reindeer living in the wild, the Sami people also keep some reindeer as domesticated animals (Tamrenar) for pulling sleds and as pack animals. Following this ancient Sami tradition, we also train the animals for stress-free interaction with humans and can thus offer our guests the opportunity for direct encounters with these Nordic nomads.
