Even with people there, the calmness of the place stands out. Geunja Sami Eco Lodge stands there, carefully tucked in between the shores of a crystal clear lake and the foot of a high mountain.
On the other side of the lake, there’s a mountain wall looking like a gorilla seen from the side, overlooking the passage to Lake Lill-Tjulträsket, its eyebrows frowning deeply over the eyes. Had we arrived there a day later, a person or two would’ve been sprawled over the grass resting or contemplating life sitting on a warm shale stone by the water. However, on this particular day, we are the first guests to arrive and are the ones sitting by the water when our host Mikael Vinka moors the boat.
