Easily accessible reconstructed Sámi camp on the old market place in the village of Jukkasjärvi.

Grazing reindeer, outdoor exhibitions about Sámi culture and livelihoods. Sápmi slow food lunch, refreshments and coffee served by the fire in Café Sápmi giant lávvu-tent; sale of genuine Sámi handicraft in adjacent handicraft shop. Guided tours. Ideal for day visitors with a limited amount of time, but still an interest to get an introduction to Sámi culture, food and reindeer.
