Adventures in Sápmi

Sápmi is the Sámi name for Arctic areas where these indigenous people live. This website is an invitation to you, the reader, to learn more about the Sámi and their culture.

Naturally, the best way to learn about Sámi culture is to experience it yourself. Visiting the Sámi in the respectful way they themselves suggest will provide you with unique insights into the local communities and an exciting indigenous culture. Being open-minded and having a willingness to share are the two key requirements for gaining an insider’s experience into the Sámi way of life.

Be prepared for new friendships and a life-changing adventure!

 

THE SÁMI ARE NORWAY’S INDIGENOUS PEOPLE.
HERE IS THE EXPERIENCE THEY OFFER YOU.

On our website, 20 Sámi-operated businesses offer you a broad range of activities and adventures. Represented are operators from each of the Sámi regions – and Sámi who traditionally fish the rivers and coast, as well as those who have a long heritage as reindeer herders. 

Some activities are directly linked to the traditional way of life, while others reflect modern Sámi society. On our activities menu are genuine cultural experiences, as well as intense outdoor adventures. Our aim is to provide something for everybody. And please check back with us regularly, as our menu expands.

We are grateful for your feedback. How did you experience your activities and adventures? What was satisfying? Where is there room for improvement? Please also let us know your interests and suggestions, and feel free to make requests. Email us at post@nordnorge.com

Thank you for your comments – and for your help in making the world of adventures available in the Sápmi region better known!
