Some photos of reindeers I have met hiking in the mountians. These live in the vast areas next to the border to Sweden, in the central parts of Norway. That is, they will soon move further south to the winter pastures. Reindeers are nomadic animals. The Sámi people also used to be nomads, they followed the animals. The reindeers still have these instincts of course. These belong to the Sámi group Saanti Sijte. There is a fence between the two countries to prevent the Norwegian and the Swedish reindeers to mix. It can easily be crossed by hiking people. At least on some places. Here is a link to more photographs of reindeers.
