Learning the Sami way
At Sapmi Nature Camp, I wanted to bring people into our Sami land to enjoy our world and learn about our way of life. So I created Sapmi Nature Camp on the land of my own Sami community. This Sami experience is a way to create awareness of the needs of our reindeer and our sustainable way of life here, North of the Arctic Circle. Nature is our culture and this place has been our home for generations – welcome to my home!

A stay here will give you a real and genuine experience of life in the Sami way.
