Sápmi Nature Camp is featured by National Geographic as a sustainable place to stay if you care about the planet. One reason is course the comfortable accommodation but even more so, our commitment to sustainability. We stand alongside the reindeer herders, nature lovers and others in the fight to keep our little corner of the world unspoiled and protected. Tourism is our way to create a deeper understanding for the life environment here in Sápmi and to spread knowledge, understanding and respect. We also create local jobs and a local, sustainable economy.
Learning the Sápmi way
At Sápmi 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 Sápmi Nature Camp on the land of my own Sami community. This Sami experience is a way to create awareness for 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!

Experience the true Sápmi way of life
You will experience much of the unspoiled nature here during this experience. Many people would call this land wilderness, but from the local Sami perspective this land is not wilderness – this is a cultural landscape where people have lived for thousands of years – but their lives have been so closely connected to nature that it’s almost impossible to see the hidden signs from the past generations life here. A stay here will give you a real and genuine experience of life in the Sami way.
