This tour gives you the opportunity to enjoy an authentic native experience at a traditional Sami Camp.

Meeting your coach at the pier, it's a short drive to Mount Salen where you are treated to breathtaking panoramic views over the town and the surrounding islands. If you're lucky, you may even spot small herds of reindeer, the domestic animals of the Sami people that are brought out to the coast to graze during the summer months.

From here, you will continue on to the Mikkelgammen Sami camp, where you will learn more about the Sami history and culture while seated on reindeer skins that are placed upon springy birch twigs, directly on the ground around an open fire. During your visit, enjoy a special native performance by the Sami, with Joiks, or chants, especially dedicated to each member of the Sami population. The Joik has no actual words and can describe for instance; a particular mood, nature, character or a person. Each Joik is personal and unique to each member. The Sami people at the camp will be wearing their colorful national costumes, which will be explained in detail. Afterwards, savor a tasty sampling of cloudberries, smoked or dried reindeer meat, polar bread, and coffee or tea.

Following this truly remarkable experience, you will rejoin your coach for the transfer back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes a minimal amount of walking, although a portion is over a gravel surface. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, can make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Weather appropriate clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.
