Here you learn more about the Sami’s life before and now, learning to throw a lasso and to drive with reindeer and sleigh. Aslak also invites you in their lavvu where freshly cooked reindeer broth (boiled reindeer meat), joik and stories stand for it. If desired Aslak also arranges a “Widdekamp” where
the participants compete in various Sami activities (pre-ordered). Guests are picked up by snowmobile at the Thon hotel.
