On our way to the Polar Museum we drive past the Catholic church and the square with the monument of all fishermen lost at sea. Lunch in one of the local restaurants. After lunch – departure for Saami adventure – we drive to the wilderness, to an uninhabited area. Here we welcome you to our wilderness camp that is the starting ending point for excursions out in the wilderness. The camp consists of a rough timber cabin, several big lavvos (Sami tents), a sauna, hot tub, and wardrobe and toilet facilities. The afternoon and night you will stay in the wilderness. The adventure starts with a Sami experience. Reindeer sledding is the oldest form of transport in the north, and an ancient part of Sami culture.

Enjoy the open fire in the tent, a hot meal and coffee or tea. In the period of November-March, you have the opportunity to experience the Northern lights.
