Do you want to get an insight of Sami culture and history and also want to experience the mighty mountain plateau winter time? We will take you to the Sami town of Kautokeino a 1 hour and 45 min drive from Alta. We start in the morning and heading south towards the town of Kautokeino where you will have history telling on the way. In Kautokeino the first stop is Juhls silver gallery, which was established in 1959 and was the first silversmith in Finnmark. Juhls bases its work on Sami culture. After Juhls Silvergallery we will have a lunch of local produced commodities, a baguette with the taste of Finnmark, before we drive to a reindeer herd. Here we will meet up close to the reindeers and you will be able to feed them. Now only your home trip remains, and you will now see the mountain landscape in a completely different light. Groups are small with max 6 guests + guide.
