This was a bit of a disappointment, a small venue, with some interesting buildings but it won't take you more than 10-15 minutes to walk around. I don't understand why they don't make much more out of this, with their incredible heritage and with so...More

I've read about the Sammi people before my trip, and even had to write about Sammi shamans in one of my papers during college, so this visit had a lot of meaning to me. The multimedia presentation was really amazing, and I saw even some...More

The park is really small, within 15 minutes and nothing much to see. You can meet Sami experience more on the journey than this park. There is a small attraction that arranged on specific time, but you do not want to wait 1,5 hour sitting...More

Enjoyed visiting the traditional Sami houses, practicing lasso and feeding reindeer. Also seeing sound and light show on Sami culture. Plus the cafe, glassblowing studio and store.

A very artistic video tells the history of the Sami culture, with especial attention to those whose lives have centered around reindeer herding. Learn about how they integrate the reindeer into their story of creation and how they integrate the Aurora Borealis into their believe...More

Unfortunately there was no Sami family in the park, the restaurant was closed and it wasn't possible to do any activities in the park. You're through the park in less than 20min. The film is really good (approx. 30min). Under these circumstances, the price (170...More

Much to expensive (52 euros for family) and nothing to see. No activities in the park to watch, the small park seemed an abandoned place and the many souvenir shops aren't worth to visit. We saw much better(natural) Sami places in Finland. Maybe a little...More

Good place to see different types and construction of Sami lavo (tents), try lasso or see the reindeer being fed. Interesting movie included in the entrance fee. Well stocked shop next to the ticket counter.
