The best of Sàpmi – winter

Join us for a special day at Sami Siida and get to know more about our special way of living as a reindeer herder family.






2 hours

When you arrive at Sami Siida, you will be greeted by a reindeer herder family. They will give you an understanding about their life by telling you about their special way of living, and show you things they have made, and showing and telling about their traditional clothing.

One of the hosts will guide you through the Siida/Park and you will get narrations about Sami history, traditions and culture, and you will of course also meet reindeers. The host will tell you all about them, and invite you for on a reindeer sledding ride around a small track. After the sledding you can warm yourself by the fireplace in the lavvo.

The host serves you coffee made on the bonfire, and some siida cake. While you are sitting by the fireplace the host starts preparing to serve you their traditional soup- called bidus. This meal is made of reindeer meat, carrots and potatoes, and will be served with bread and juice/water.

After the food experience you will experience traditional entertainment. The host will joik for you and tell you about the traditional way of singing. After the joiking we will wrap the experience up, and the host will thank you for your visit.
