Spend some magical hours at Anna and Erik’s camp at the Arctic Circle. Meet Anna and some of her reindeer, learn about the Sami culture, listen to joik and enjoy a traditional meal from the Sami kitchen in the lávvu.
Anna and Erik are an indigenous Sámi couple who lives the indigenous lifestyle based on reindeer herding. Anna will share her passion for the culture and the reindeer with you.
You will meet some of her reindeer in a corral. Reindeers are curious friendly animals and you will be able to get really close and feed them.
In the lávvu (tipi, traditional Sami tent) you gather around the fire and Anna will tell stories and you will learn about the Sámi history and culture. Over the open fire a lunch will be prepared. The ingredients will depend on the season and what nature has to offer but it will be local specialties such as fish, moose or reindeer (options for special dietary requirements can be arranged).
You will also get to listen to joik. Joik is the traditional Sami way of singing and to musically tell a story and remember the old times.
