Activities

Hiking Trails

There are many hiking trails. In the Sámi Country, there are numerous natural parks, in which it is possible to hike. You can choose a hike of your own preference, depending on the desired length and difficulty level. It is also possible to hike outside of the natural parks. Because the trails are often in wilderness areas, it is good to get to know the area and the corresponding rules in the area.

Fishing

The Sámi Country is particularly renowned for its fishing possibilities -- whether the fisherman prefers fishing on the sea or inland. Both the local population and visitors enjoy fishing on the sea, the lake or one of the many rivers in the Sámi Country.

Every fjord on the coasts of the Sámi Country is unique; there are many possibilities when fishing in the fjords. Usually, fishing is done from a boat, but it is also possible to fish from the shore. Many small companies organise fishing excursions. When fishing from the shore, only a casting rod with a reel is necessary, but when fishing from a boat, trolling and fishing with a jug are most common.

It is also possible to fish on the lakes and rivers. The Alta and Teno rivers are probably the most well known fishing rivers in the Sámi Country. When fishing inland it is necessary to have a fishing licence. Fish can be caught with flies or lures, and the necessary fishing instrument is a fishing rod with a reel.

Whether you are fishing inland or on the sea, the catch is more or less guaranteed! While waiting for the catch, you can enjoy the Sámi Country`s unique nature, for example. No matter what, the experiences offered by the rich nature will make your trip worth it!

Skiing

Winter and snow are plentiful in the Sámi Country. This makes the area an ideal destination for skiing. Whether you prefer unhurried cross-country skiing or faster-paced slalom, skiing excursions to the North always leave a long-lasting impression.
The conditions for skiing are excellent: ski tracks are kept in good condition and are found all around the region, and many friendly skiers can be encountered along these tracks. It is possible to choose whether you are going to ski from cottage to cottage hundreds of kilometres or whether you are just going to ski for a day. Good alternatives for accommodations can be found not far from the lit ski tracks.

Cave drawings demonstrate that the Sámi invented skiing. The Sámi used skis to get around a long time ago, but they only used one pole. Skiing is part of daily life here in the North, where there is no shortage of winter or snow.
