Indigenous Arctic Life in Laponia
“This land is not wilderness. This is a cultural landscape where my ancestors have formed life throughout the centuries. This is reindeer herding land. This is Sápmi – the land of the Sámi people.” – Lennart Pittja
Sápmi Nature is a Sámi owned and operated nature-based tented camp close to Laponia World Heritage Area. The camp is located outside of Gällivare during the winter season and in the mountains during summer season.
There are 5 comfortable tented rooms located in a natural environment. Each lavvu-tent has a warm heater that keeps the room warm and cozy no matter the outside temperature. Washroom is located nearby your room. The home-cooked meals based on the Sámi culture and food traditions are served in the large lavvu-tent lounge. Sápmi Nature serve their own produced reindeer meat or moose, mountain caught fish (Arctic Char, Brown trout and Whitefish) and have picked most of the berries themselves.
