What you will experience
During your visit, the Gaup family at Hillágurra will give you a glimpse of their reindeer herding lifestyle, which has provided a livelihood for countless generations of their kin. You will hear the stories about how the Sámi reindeer herders have always lived in harmony with nature.
When you arrive, we welcome you into our duodji workshop, where we make our traditional Sámi handicrafts. Here we’ll serve you coffee and sandwiches, while digging out warm winter clothes for you. We will also show you traditional Sámi clothing, explain how it is made and how eminently suitable to our environment it is. As soon as you have changed, we walk together to our goahti. On the way, you can meet and help feed the reindeer calves.
By the fire in our goahti, it’s always nice and warm – and you’re invited to a meal of steaming reindeer meat. We’ll also serve you cake and coffee prepared over the fire, and treat you to more stories.
This experience can be combined with visits to Sámi museums, and a guided tour by bus or car. (Museum visits and tours are booked as additional products.)
