Lip Lip – Aurora Borealis
“Have you heard about the mysterious white reindeer, whispering winds and northern lights saving lives?”
– Nils Torbjörn Nutti, owner and guide, 2018
Lip Lip is a northern light activity with focus on traditional Sámi storytelling. We walk with a reindeer and sled in torchlight to the best places to see the aurora borealis in Jukkasjärvi and Kiruna. So follow our guide and tamed reindeer out for an educational, mysterious and peaceful walk to the best northern light locations in our forest near Reindeer Lodge. This activity suits everyone as our reindeer will assist us as they did back in the nomadic time, by pulling our packing-sleds where kids can sit too.
The focus of this tour is on storytelling, since the oral tradition is the only way Sámi knowledge has been passed on through history. Sadly, Sámi myths and tales about the old religion, nature and northern lights are disappearing among the younger generations. This makes the Lip Lip tour a great opportunity to take part in hearing rarely told stories and learning first hand about the Sámi culture.
