Recently recognized by Natural Geographic, the Sapmi Nature Camp is the ideal place to interact with the environment while not disturbing or disrupting its natural order. Instead, you get to seamlessly slip amongst and experience living with reindeer, while gaining a better understanding of their herding tendencies and lifestyle habits.
The nature camp is owned and operated by Lennart Pittja, from the Unna Tjerusj Sami community in Gallivare. Lennart has been involved in the Sami tourism industry for over two decades and knows more about this part of the world than almost anyone else.
He personally describes this experience as a way to enjoy the culture of generations of reindeer herds in the region, while respecting and loving their habitat. This sense of compassion towards the animals is where the camp starts and that same level of care and attention is extended to their customers as well – hoping that each one walks away with a unique experience, filled with knowledge and awe.
