Activity description

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allows you to visit Kiruna’s finest open-air museum which is dedicated to and run by the Sami, Swedish Lapland’s local indigenous people. This exciting day trip will give you firsthand access to Sami handicrafts and, to top it all off, you will get to experience the amazing lifestyle of the Sámi people and go inside an authentic corral with Lapland's most iconic creature: the reindeer. 

You'll learn about Sami culture in the open-air museum, focusing on how traditional buildings are created, as well as the Sami lifestyle, and how the Sami people interact with the local environment. You can even purchase a bag of Arctic moss and feed the reindeer which creates the perfect environment for a once-in-a-lifetime photograph with these majestic creatures!

All of this excitement will most certainly make you hungry! This unique experience also includes access to a lovely café which is located inside a cozy wooden teepee that is owned and operated by the local Sami community. Warm drinks, sandwiches, and classic Swedish Fika are available for purchase.

Nice museum for 25€ but the bus tour was too expensive!
