The footage was captured by a Norwegian photographer about two miles south of Kautokeino, a municipality in Finnmark county, Norway.

The reindeer herders can be seen carrying huge pieces of netting or cloth to guide the animals into the center pen, where dozens of people are waiting. (Image source: YouTube)

Jan Helmer Olsen used aerial camera drones to capture the amazing reindeer footage, which he posted on YouTube Wednesday.

Olsen’s website says his “hobby and passion is photography and filming.” The majority of his aerial footage is captured with a hexacopter drone.

“This is only a small part of the reindeer that are on film. They have now had many thousands of deer inside the fence before this was filmed,” Olsen told TheBlaze in an email.
