Sami Tour – a historic tour of the Native People of Gällivare

Make a unique journey with a guide of Sami heritage, the indigenous people in the area since ancient time living on reindeer herding, hunting, picking herbs and berries.

In the early 1700s, the first settlers came to build on Sami owned land, in 1747 the church was built at Váhtjerjåhkå with the purpose of Christian Sami in Jiellevárree and Kaitom.

The Sami religion is different from Christianity and the massive influx of  Swedish miners from the 1800s onwards had an effect on the culture and the language. We’ll visit a wooded area in the countryside with traces of old Sami settlements affected by both mining and settlers.
