Tour operator Off the Map Travel offers travelers an immersive itinerary in Sweden. The new Sápmi Experience brings travelers to northern Sweden for a cultural experience with the indigenous Sami people.
The three-night, four-day tour takes place in Sápmi Nature Camp on the Sjavnja Nature Reserve in Laponia, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Guests will enjoy a glamping experience in a newly built Sami lavvu, or teepee. The upgraded lavvus are built for maximum coziness while still maintaining the design of the traditional Sami structures. Each lavvu sleeps two people and features a double bed, stove, furnishings and en-suite bathroom.
Tour participants will join the Sami people for hands-on experiences including cooking, reindeer herding, fishing and foraging for berries and herbs. Take part in a wildlife safari to spot moose. Sport traditional wooden skis for a Sami-led ski tour and bonfire on the ice of a frozen river.
Arrive in Kiruna, Sweden, and depart by train to Gallivare in Laponia. Make your home here for the trip at the Sápmi Nature Camp in your lavvu. Time permitting, explore the iconic ICEHOTEL before departing for Laponia.
