About 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.
