Saami are the indigenous people of Norwegian Lapland. Today they settle mainly in the towns of Karasjok and Kautokeino. In Karasjok you will find Sapmi, a theme park of Saami culture, and Stalubakti magical theater. Apart from visiting the settlement, you can participate in salmon fishing, see a deer resting place and Engholm farm where they breed huskies. Go for a cruise to Finnish border. Take a look at Saami Parliament. In Kautokeino you may visit a silver workshop Juhls Sølvsmie.

One cannot leave Finnmark without being at Nordkapp! The North Cape rises 309 meters high above the sea level and is 500-600 million years old. Here you will feel endlessness and grandeur of Mother-nature. It is impossible to describe emotions when you realize that in front of you lie only the Arctic ocean and the North pole.
