This is a real Sami experience, for anyone who wants to. The animals, the buildings and also the people, all truly Sami, and they make the most of it for you. Well worth it if you are in the area. Need to book first to make sure they are there and willing.

We received a brief yet detailed summary of Sami... More

We (two adults, to boys aged 12 and 9) visited this spot twice. Very interesting guiding, possible to buy good food, great hospitality, exciting to come close to the reindeer and get a glimpse af saami culture and everyday life. Highly recommended.

Excellent visit hosted by the Sami family. Very informative guided visit followed by time with the reindeer and coffee in the Lavvu round an open fire. We were privileged to hear several yoiks and were invited to join in.

In order to see reindeer, we had to visit the Sami. The establishment we visited is called Boazi Sami Siida and here, Håkon Kristian Haldorsen, his wife and his sister show us the traditional costumes, and demonstrate the Sami reindeer herders' way of life. I think what struck me most was the brightness of their clothing, all obtained from natural... More
