Sami activities – winter

The Sami are one of the world’s indigenous peoples and have lived in Sápmi since time immemorial, a region that today stretches from the Kola Peninsula in Russia, over the northern regions from Finland to Norway, and in Sweden from Treriksröset (Three-Country Cairn) to the north, down to Idre to the south. Kiruna is a part of Sápmi and has been home for many generations of Sami. Here there is a genuine living Sami culture, which we look forward to showing you as our guest by offering a variety of different Sami activities. Experience daily Sami life, learn about their customs and traditions, admire the breathtaking Sami handicrafts called ”Sámi doudji” and perhaps experience your first meeting with reindeer. A special experience is settling down to hear stories about Sami life in the past, present and visions for the future. Welcome to Kiruna, a part of Sápmi.
