Your Sámi guide is a trained archaeologist and the day will start with an excursion around Årrenjarka’s forests where you will get to see many different types of subtile, ancient remains like old hearths, cooking pits and hunting pits. Some dates as far back as the Stone Age.

You will hear and learn about the lifestyle of the people who lived here in the north, thousands of years ago and all the way up to modern times. Your guide will tell you about the culture, language and history of the Sámi people.

After the archaeological walk, you will go to a typical Sámi tent, a lávvu, to make coffee over the open fire and try some traditional Sámi food and reindeer meat. The storytelling continues inside the lávvu and your guide will also perform some different joiks, traditional Sámi chants.
