Sami Experience
2017-02-2721:06 Cathrine Wallstad Myhre

Our guests are welcome to experience the exotic native Sami culture. We tell you the stories about our Sami culture, myths and magic, herding reindeers, and the daily life of the arctic reindeers and their exciting properties. You will experience Joik (The traditional song of the Sami people) while seated around the warm, cosy fireplace inside our lavvu, enjoying the special atmosphere.

Outside you might want to try lassoing. Our guests are invited to meet the reindeer for an exciting experience! Guests get to feed the reindeers, they are tame and will eat food straight from your hand. While you are feeding the reindeer, it’s an excellent opportunity to shoot wonderful pictures. If you have booked in advance, it might be possible to have a short sledding trip with the reindeers.  

See our exhibition of the sami costumes and photographs from a year of working with the reindeer. Sit by the fire in one of our Lavvo’s and enjoy a taste of Sami food, based on local traditions and raw materials. Listen to a yoik, the story of the Sami people, our culture and history.  At night, you can experience the Northern Lights and the “Sami sky”, a fascinating history of whaling which takes place on the North Norwegian sky!
We have sales of some handicrafts (Sami handicrafts), the sami knives, postcards, antlers, hides and meat.
