Unique Video of Reindeer Herding in Norway

The video taken by Jan Helmer Olsen and Roald Solbakken using a drone camera shows reindeer herding done in Kautokeino in Northern Norway.

Reindeer have been herded for centuries by several Arctic and Subarctic people including the Sami and the Nenets. They are raised for their meat, hides, and antlers and, to a lesser extent, for milk and transportation. Reindeer are not considered fully domesticated, as they generally roam free on pasture grounds. In traditional nomadic herding, reindeer herders migrate with their herds between coast and inland areas according to an annual migration route and herds are keenly tended.
