On this adventure, we’ll make a small hike on to the old forests and hills, viewing an listening the nature. You’ll learn about local flora and fauna: to recognize the voices and tracks of the wild animals, the plants and their traditional use as natural medicines, spices and food.
We’ll walk on peaceful pace outside the roads and trails. We head up to a forest goahti, a traditional tepee-like hut. There we’ll make a bonfire, enjoy a traditional Lapland snacks, learn about reindeer herding and the local traditions, and also visit a real-life reindeer round-up fence area.
The duration, and the walking distance, varies according to your wishes. This adventure is suitable for everyone, also for children and elderly, because it
can be adjusted to your own wishes. If you don’t want to hike, it’s not necessary, we can take you to the goahti by other means too.
