A trip into the heart of Lapland is a tour you will never forget! Here you can experience a genuine ethnic atmosphere with “samisk joik” (a Lapp song without music), traditional Lapp food, and a visit to a Reindeer herding family, tending their reindeer herds during the winter season.

Here we will over night in the pre heated sami tents.

Day 2
After breakfast we visit by car, a reindeer herding family, where we can get a first hand look at the Sami way of life.We will eat lunch outdoors, which will consist of bidos (a Lapp meat soup). Here it is important that we drive carefully as not to disturb the reindeer herds during winter grazing. After the visit we will return to base camp. The rest of the day will be spent ice-fishing on lakes near to the base camp. In the evening we can gladly fry trout or char, if we have caught any, but just in case we don’t, local dishes will be provided.

We will start with breakfast before our drive back to Kautokeino on our snowmobiles. After lunch we will visit the newly built film set, associated with the film Kautokeino 1852. When we are finished here, the bus will be waiting to drive us back to Alta airport. We can guarantee that a visit to Lappland will leave memories that you will never forget.
