Árbi Suohpan – Sámi Culture & Reindeer
Visit a Sami village, feed the reindeer, throw the lasso and make a short ride with the reindeer sled. A great opportunity to get a glimpse of the traditional life of the Sami people.
In a little Sami village 20 km west of Kiruna, we will give you a glimpse of the traditional life of the reindeer people. Some of our reindeer are fed and cared for in a corral during the wintertime. You will get close to them and they will eat from your hand if you’re lucky. Do you know how to throw the lasso like a cowboy? Well, the reindeer herders do it the opposite way. Your guide will teach you how to do it! We’ll harness a few reindeer and take a short brisky ride around the corral. After the ride we’ll enjoy our lunch with reindeer meat and bread around the open fire in the lavvu (Sami tepee).
