Autumn experience with Sápmi Nature
We are proud to invite you to experience some of our favourite places during one of the best seasons of the year. Autumn in Sápmi is somewhat a secret for many travellers which makes this an ideal time to come. This is a time of year when nature provides so many colours to experience – in the mountains, in the primeval forest and even on the sky with the chance to experience the Northern Light.

Nature also provides so much food for us to forage – fresh caught fish, reindeer meat and berries are just some examples of flavours at its best this time of year. We invite you to learn more about our food traditions as we will prepare and eat the food together.

We only run 2 departures in September 2019, each with at most 6 participants/departure – read more and book here.

 

We are staying in award winning Sápmi Nature Camp
Our basecamp will be at award winning Sápmi Nature Camp – in the heart of Laponia. Here you will find the comfort of a tented camp located in unspoiled nature – all run by local Sámi from this area. The camp consists of newly build double rooms in the form of lavvu tents furnished with comfortable double beds and efficient stoves to keep warm no matter the outside temperatures. There is a wood heated sauna in the camp and a modern incineration toilet so there’s nothing missing despite the fact that there’s no electricity and/or sewer.

Sápmi Nature is featured by National Geographic 
Sápmi Nature Camp is featured by National Geographic as a sustainable place to stay if you care about the planet. One reason is course the comfortable accommodation but even more so, our commitment to sustainability. We stand alongside the reindeer herders, nature lovers and others in the fight to keep nature unspoiled. Our experiences should never create problems for the reindeer herding here. Tourism is our way to create a deeper understanding for the life environment here in Sápmi and to spread knowledge, understanding and respect but also to create local jobs and a local, sustainable economy.

Northern light season between end of August to beginning of April
