Discover Samiland Finland

Lapland is the land of the Sami people. They are the largest group of indigenous people in Europe. There are less than 140,000 of them remaining, including 6,400 in Finland. In the heights of the resort of Levi, Samiland is a museum that retraces the history and ways of life of this very particular people. It presents a display of images and video archives. Mannequins are dressed in traditional costumes. Outside, along a hilly trail you can discover the different types of housing the Sami live in and you can even meet the reindeer that live here. It is an interesting circuit to be discovered on your own, with a group or as a family!

    The taiga as surroundings

    Taiga-type forests are very common in Lapland. It is in this harsh environment that the Sami live.
