Sámi Glamping

Overview

Glamping in Lavvo or Goahti.

Traditionally, the lavvo has been the Sámi dwelling and the focal point of much of our activity – and this tipi-like tent is still widely used during the intense period of the annual reindeer migration.

Comfort is ensured by putting down a layer of birch twigs, onto which reindeer pelts are placed. This provides insulation and serves as a mattress. Sleeping next to the fire keeps you warm, and you will find it also gives great peace of mind.

Enjoy the lovely Nordland night

You can choose whether you wish to sleep in a lavvo or a goahti. The latter is a traditional earth hut, called gamme in Norwegian, with comfortable beds placed around a warm and cosy woodstove. The beds are equipped with pillows, duvets and woollen blankets. If you get too hot, just open the door onto the lovely Nordland night; a second screen door keeps out the mosquitoes.

The goahti has five beds, making it ideal for families or a group of friends. Our lavvo is more intimate, with space for a couple, although one or two extra beds can be added if desired (the lavvo does not have a mosquito screen door).

Eat dinner around the bonfire

Next to the goahti there is a lean-to shelter under which you can light a fire and prepare your own dinner, if you wish. You can also order a delicious Sámi dinner from us.

Our overnight guests have access to our service facility, which has showers and toilets.

Breakfast may be ordered at additional cost.A baby cot is available on request.
