About this adventure

Kautokeino or Guovdageaidnu as it is called in North Sami have a strong bond to nature and the reindeer herding culture, this is also reflected in the local community.

Arriving at the Sami camp, Aslak will greet us and give you a real experience about how the Sami culture is today and how it has changed over the years. Warm up your throwing arm and try catching a reindeer with a lasso and reindeer driving – but do not worry you will get a full training before you get to try on your own.

After working up an appetite you will be served a traditional Sami meal around the fire in the lavvo accompanied by a Joik.

The tour

With our guide you will set out from Alta in the morning, heading south towards the town of Kautokeino. Here you will be introduced to a life in balance with nature where events depend on the reindeer, not on modern times.

In Kautokeino we will change our means of transportation to snowmobiles, while we head to the reindeer herder Aslak, who will introduce you to the reindeer and the sami culture.

Here you will get to try lasso throwing and reindeer driving before lunch – that will be served around the fire in the lavvo accompanied by a Joik (a  traditional Sami song).

Before we return to Alta there will be possible stop by the impressive Juhl’s silver gallery, where they make silverjewlery for the traditional Sami Kofte.
