Genuine Sámi Culture Experience - Borrat
Visit a Sámi winter residence, come and meet and feed reindeer. Enjoy a couple of hours spent gathered around the fire, where you can listen to a 'joik', the traditional Sámi way to musically tell a story and to remember the old ways.
Untill recent years, the Sámi did not have a written language and so storytelling is an important part of their culture. You will listen to tales from ancient times untill today around the campfire. Stories about reindeer, the eight seasons and things you may sense only when you are able to live close to nature.
Guests will be invited to sample traditional meals from the Sámi kitchen. Local specialties like reindeer and moose will be prepared over an open fire in the lávvu. During the winter season, you will encounter reindeer at close quarters. To hand-feed them is a real adventure. You can learn basic skills how to throw the lasso.
