It is a normal winter day, twenty degrees celsius below zero, a beautiful spring day with wet snow melting by the first warmth from the sun or a cold autumn day with the first snow. We have just been talking about how Sami people get dressed for keeping warm the whole day. Now it is time to try our knowledge. We are alone out in the forest. Here is the only way to survive to keep warm. Food, way of moving, doing fire and keeping us dry is important.
We learn the Sami way of being in the nature, how to think, what to do and not do and we learn how to dress, make fire and find food. We search under the snow, look for animal tracks and learn ways to move in the forest. In Sami language there is more than 300 words to tell about the snow, the same with describing the weather and landscape.
We will be walking in the forest so we recommend that you wear good clothes for the season, mittens and a warm hat on the tour.
