Wouldn´t it be great to surprise your loved one(s) with a special dinner in the Lávvu? Maybe you have something to celebrate, If you are very lucky you might even see the Northern Lights.
Come and meet Anna, a young Sámi woman. Together with her family they are still living the traditional native lifestyle based on reindeer herding.
Enjoy a couple of hours spent gathered around the fire, where you can listen to joik, the traditional Sámi way to musically tell a story and to remember the old ways.
Until recent years, the Sami did not have a written language, and so storytelling is an important part of their culture; you will listen to tales from ancient times until today around the campfire. Stories about reindeer, the eight seasons, and spirituality you may sense only when you are able to live close to nature.
Authentic Sámi food is something that both Anna and Erik heartily embrace. Guests will be invited to cook and taste traditional meals from the Sámi kitchen. The menu will depend on the season and what nature’s pantry will have on offer. All food will be prepared over an open fire in the lávvu (tent house). The ingredients will be local specialties, such as reindeer, moose and fish.
Off course you will get to meet and feed the reindeer we have in the village. If you like you can also try to throw the lasso!
This tour is offered during the Wintermarket, but you can always send us a request if you wish other dates!
