Abisko - Guided tour to a Sami Camp

The fire is lit and starts to crackle under the coffee pot while the guide tells stories, anecdotes and myths about the Sámi. Coffee tastes extraordinary with a twist of dried reindeer meat in your cup. A sense of genuine simplicity aries when you sit inside a Dárfegoahti (traditional Sámi hut) cuddled on a reindeer skin.

Join our visit to a Sámi Camp and see how Sámi in the Abisko area lived in the late 1800's. The Sámi are a indigenous people who lived by hunting, fishing and herding reindeer. They moved from inland winter pastures to summer grazing in the mountains, everything governed by the seasons and the natural migration of reindeer. Thanks to a contribution from SJ, a Swedish train company, the Swedish Tourist Association could erect a reconstruction of a Sámi Autumn- and Spring camp at this location.

During the guided tour, we will look at traditional Sámi construction techniques and see other objects from the time when the Sámi lived a nomadic life. After a tour of the camp, you will have learnt more about the unique way of life that belongs to Sámi history. It is now time to light the fire in the traditional Sámi hut.
