On our third day we visited a ‘Sami homestead museum’. Here we learnt a little more about the Sami way of life, specifically reindeer herding throughout the year, and got to have a look at, and in, some traditional Sami housing….
Plus we got to see some beautiful Sami articles…
But of course the experience wouldn’t be complete without a few reindeer….
Richard and the kids even tried their hand at lassoing some ‘reindeer’ – should the need ever arise…!
After lunch sitting on reindeer skins by an open fire, we headed off to look at the 16th century church next door – with some outstanding paintings inside….
Can you spot the people in Sami dress? Perhaps this was painted at a time when Christian pilgrims tried to convert the Sami people to Christianity?
