Idjastállu – Northern lights and reindeer
“Sámi storytelling is deeply connected to nature and a cultural expression we are willing to share with our guests.”
– Nils Torbjörn Nutti, company owner Nutti Sámi Siida, 2020
A silent night. Sparkling stars, creaking snow and flaming northern lights dancing across the sky. A guide who softly tells legends from the past. This tour offers an easily accessible evening meeting with reindeer, aurora borealis and traditional Sámi storytelling – within walking distance from Reindeer Lodge and Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi village.
