Reindeer Girls

Far from ordinary teenagers.


Elle and Inga 17-year-old cousins from the north of Norway are far from ordinary teenagers.

They are reindeer herders equally at home helping reindeer swim fjords or ice fishing as playing with the internet and mobile phones. We follow the girls and their families as they accompany the reindeer herds on the annual migration across the Arctic tundra gaining a unique insight into the lives of the girls and the reindeer on which they depend in this bleak and beautiful world.
