The five senses of Sámi life
Welcome to my warm Lávvu in Jukkasjärvi!
Follow my family and I on a journey through eight seasons of the Sámi as we walk with the reindeer from the forest to the mountain.
Experience of our Sámi life with your senses.
We start with a step into the Sámi culture and a visit to the Sámi museum. Travelling back thousands of years to take a look at the traditional clothes and tools that were, and are vital, to living in the cold of daily life in the Arctic.
Next we gather around the sparkling fire in the Lávvu, the traditional Sámi place to live within nature. Here the journey begins around eight seasons, our life. To be together, young and old, working together and learning from our elders. We are helping each other.
