Sami Life

Join Ida-Maria in her warm Lávvu (teepee) to experience the life and culture of the indigenous people of the north, the Sámi. Listen to her stories of the Sámi lifestyle and how the herders follow the reindeer through the 8 seasons of the Sámi year. 

During this incredible experience you will get the chance to bake traditional Sámi flatbread on an open fire, whilst enjoying warming freshly brewed coffee. Outside the Lávvu you will have an opportunity to meet a lovely, calm reindeer and feed him some tasty lichen whilst learning more about these amazing animals and how they are still a crucial part of the very fabric of life for many Sámi people.

Finally you will visit the Sámi museum for a historical journey through the Sámi culture.

We recommend bringing a packed lunch although a short stop will be made at a shop on departure to allow you to buy basic food items.
