Sami culture

Lessons in Sami
Learn about the only indigenous people in Scandinavia, the Arctic reindeer herders

We start our day at Levinportti and leave for Sami Museum Siida in Inari.


To get there, we travel across the fells on an unpaved road. We will have a coffee break in the Lapp village Pokka. We might spot reindeer and other wildlife on our way. During the drive the guide tells us facts and folklore about the Sami culture. In Siida, we familiarise ourselves with the Sami history and culture.

After lunch we will head home. On the way back, we will visit the Samis' holy site for sacrifice, the Taatsin seita. We will reach Levi in the evening.
