WE OFFER UNIQUE SÁMI ADVENTURES

In our adventures you will be a guest, not a tourist. You will share the experience with the local Sámi who will take you to the places that only few have seen. You have a chance to see the unspoiled Arctic nature far away from hotels and resorts in Lapland. With us you can truly immerse yourself and deep dive into the Sámi culture. The Sámi have developed rich sets of knowledge and livelihood about how to adapt to the Arctic wilderness. Take this unusual  opportunity to experience and participate in unique Sámi culture, feats and traditions. 

 

WE CREATE ONCE IN A LIFETIME MEMORIES

Our adventures are real and they are based on both modern and traditional Sámi culture. We don't build anything special or separate for our guests. Instead travellers will participate in the Sámi people's normal and everyday life. After a visit to us, you will have the experiences, but you will also have knowledge about reindeer herding and Sámi traditions. You will also have an understanding on how it is to live of the land - depending on nature. The Arctic is well known for the Northern Lights, the Aurora Borealis. That makes your trip extra magic!

 

OUR GROUP SIZES ARE ALWAYS SMALL 

 We want you to experience the best adventure ever so we keep our group sizes small from 1 - 6 people so you can truly enjoy your stay with us. You will have time to know your hosts and fellow travelers. We believe in quality and new lifelong friendships. 

 

FOOD & CLOTHING TRADITIONS

Traditional Sámi food has been based on wild food, such as fish, game, reindeer, berries, and herbs which are derived straight from the Arctic nature. Reindeer graze freely in the cleanest environment in the Arctic. Reindeer get food from nature in every season by eating pastures like fresh leaves, berries, herbs, and lichen hidden beneath the snow. Reindeer meat is much healthier than red meat. It is high in omega 3 & 6 and vitamin B12. And what more, reindeer meat is very delicious! We like to call our experiences also slow travel as preparing food and fetching water is part of our Sámi experience in the Arctic. You are welcome to enjoy traditional Sámi dishes that feature local Arctic ingredients and traditional Sámi cooking methods. 

 The Sámi people have lived in the Arctic for a long time and our traditional outwear clothing is probably the most warmest as we use reindeer skin and fur for winter clothing. The Sámi people develop a very close relationship to the reindeer and always use as much of it as we can. All parts of the animal is used. The reindeer fur is uniquely thermal, keeping the body warm in subzero temperatures. A complete traditional Sámi outfit is a considerable expense in terms of materials and time used by making them. The knowledge of reindeer skin preparation for clothing is passed down through the generations.
