Sami Experience with lunch
Experience the everyday life of a reindeer owning family at the Sámi village of Rensjön.
Meet reindeer owner Marja Kuhmunen and feed a group of her curious and gentle reindeer. In the corral you will become better acquainted with these wonderful creatures as they carefully approach you. After feeding the reindeer lichen by hand we will warm up in the Sámi kåta around a crackling open fire, settle down on soft reindeer hides and enjoy a lunch prepared with our own reindeer meat.
During you stay at Rensjön Marja will introduce you to Sámi culture, telling stories of traditions, folklore and ancient religion. You’ll learn about contemporary Sámi life and how mining and the moving of Kiruna town have impacted traditional reindeer ownership and culture. Our aim is to ensure guests enjoy meeting Sámi reindeer owning hosts in an authentic and intimate setting.
