An introduction to Sami activities in Lapland

The indigenous people of Lapland, the Sami, still maintain many of the traditions and values, myths and lifestyles that have been upheld for thousands of years. For many, an insight into this fascinating indigenous culture is a big highlight of their visit.

Our Sami adventures are in collaboration with the local Sami people in each destination, and are designed in a way that give you an insight to their fascinating culture all while showing a high level of respect. Whether you are looking for a short trip with a reindeer herder or an overnight expedition into the wilderness with your Sami guide, Visit Lapland has you covered. 

A guide to Arctic Sami activities

The Sámi are the only indigenous people of the European Union, residing in the Northern parts of Finland, Norway and Sweden as well as in parts of North-Eastern Russia.

Sámi people believe in a connection with the land and the seasons; the nature and the animals; the midnight sun and the Northern Lights; the heat from the fire on a sparkling winter’s day and the coolness of a mountain stream after a long day’s hike.

The culture is defined by their relationship with reindeer which traditionally provides food and clothing to survive the cold winters and mild summer of the region.

Today you can still experience Sámi culture through Duodji (handicraft), fishing, food and produce and by experiencing Sámi activities in Lapland.
