Throughout November and December, the Sami people gather the reindeer from the mountains and forests, with the end goal of separating the reindeer out into their respective families. This then always each reindeer herder to collect their own reindeer from these events (this video) and transport them to an area of the forest which is specifically used by them. This ensures that each reindeer herder can theoretically monitor, and look after their reindeer incase of serious weather/food changes as the reindeer that they own are all in one place; rather than all over the mountains as they are during summer/autumn.

This video gives an insight into an average day when working at these ‘skiljning’ events (separating events).
