Samiland is part of the worldwide UNESCO Observatory Cultural Village program. It is built at the Meetings & Events Centre Levi Summit at the Levi ski resort in Kittilä, Lapland.
Samiland includes an indoor exhibition (500m²) and an outdoor exhibition (10,000m²), which present the history and present day of the European Union’s only indigenous people, the Sami.
In the indoor exhibition, visitors can study the national costumes and everyday objects of the different Sami groups, which are described and illustrated with pictures. Our indoor exhibition introduces also reindeer herding in greater detail. Visitors can read stories about old reindeer herders and observe, in real time, the movements of a reindeer with a GPS transmitter collar.
In the outdoor exhibition visitors follow a 300-metre long path, along which different kinds of traditional Sami buildings have been erected. The original purpose of each building is described in detail. The buildings have been furnished in traditional styles, depicting how Sami people have lived during different periods. Visitors can get close to reindeers in the outdoor enclosure and feed them lichen (in winter only).
Samiland offers guided tours in Finnish and English, with traditional Sami joiku (yoik) singing as an optional extra. Samiland offers different kinds of seasonal workshops where visitors can learn about Sami handicraft or suopunki (reindeer lasso) throwing.
