Welcome to a fascinating and exotic adventure in the heart of Sápmi – Kárášjohka/Karasjok. Around 90% of the local population speak Sami, and the area is home to approx. 60,000 reindeer on autumn and winter grazing.
Pay a visit to an authentic Sami family, see the reindeer and listen to the stories of past and present Sami culture. Taste Sami food such as bidos, a traditional reindeer stew, and listen to the fascinating joik, the Sami chant. We can also recommend a trip up onto the mountain plain in the winter, by ski, on a sled pulled by reindeer or huskies, or on a snowmobile. You will never forget the sight of the Northern Lights dancing over the winter skies, and the fascinating diversity of Sami culture and activities.
Population: approx. 2,900. Area, municipality: 5,464 km².
