Northern Norway Nordland VEFSN

An evening wilderness adventure with a taste of Sámi culture

  •  /  km From You

Come along for a wilderness adventure in Helgeland. With the moon and perhaps the glow of the Northern Lights illuminating our way, and equipped with headlights if needed, Hi North will guide you on a magical adventure!

Sjåmoen is a recreation area at the threshold of the wilderness, situated a short distance from the town of Mosjøen. This site has been used by many generations of Sámi reindeer herders for gathering and sorting their flocks. Grateful to be away from the noise and light disturbances of the city, visitors often speak of experiencing a deep tranquillity at Sjåmoen.

Your guide will equip you with snowshoes and then we’ll go on a short trek to our destination, a nearby lavvo. This tipi-shaped tent is a portable traditional dwelling that is used by the nomadic Sámi reindeer herders. Away from the lights of the city, you will be amazed at how many stars there are. If we’re lucky, we may even see the Northern Lights dancing across the skies above!

The brief snowshoe walk through easy terrain will keep you warm until we arrive at the lavvo. Inside, we’ll sit by the crackling fire and enjoy good conversation over a delicious meal prepared with reindeer meat and other local ingredients.

After our meal, we’ll hear about the ancient culture of the indigenous Sámi people, their reindeer herding, their language, their history, myths and beliefs. Theirs is a way of life that has been passed down through the generations since time immemorial. A reindeer herder has to really know and respect his or her animals, and be attuned to wind and weather, the life cycle of the reindeer, and the ever-changing wilderness. Here, life is not regulated by a wristwatch! Did you know that the Sámi people count eight seasons?

Our Sámi host will be happy to answer questions. We invite you to join us for an unforgettable wilderness evening. This is a unique opportunity to gain insights into an ancient Arctic culture.
