The excursion starts with a drive through the fishing village of Kjollefjord. Afterwards you continue into the mountains to the Nordkyn peninsula. Here you will meet one of the families whose reindeer are at summer pasture. They invite you to a close and evocative encounter around the fire in their Sami tent (lavvu), while reindeer graze outside.
The family are reindeer herders, artisans and heralds of Sami traditions. They will give you an insight into the challenges that reindeer herders and Sami culture are facing today. Through stories, chanting (joik), handicrafts and the serving of reindeer broth you will get a taste of Sami culture.
The trip continues up to the Finnmark plateau, 300 m above sea level, where you might also see reindeer in their natural habitat.
