Sámi Siida – Márkanbáiki
”The outdoor museum is sweet and informative, but the shining star is the interaction with the reindeer.”
– Maria, 2018
Márkanbáiki is an easily accessible, vibrant meeting place in Jukkasjärvi for day visitors who want to engage their senses to experience Sápmi.
Get up close and personal with reindeer and stroll through the outdoor exhibition area. There is plenty of open spaces and the playground Mini-Sápmi invites the young generation to play and learn.
Try traditional Sámi food and enjoy ’fika’ in charming Café Sápmi or the outdoor serving area.
As a reminder of your visit you surely find some special item in our on-site handicraft shop.
