Top Image: 1439

The bus and local guide will meet the guests at the pier. During a short tour of the city centre the guide will inform about Alta, its history, economy, culture and day-to-day live. Then the bus continues towards Eiby and the Boazo Sami Siida. Boazo Sami Siida is situated near the Alta river. Here you get to experience a real sami siida (settlement of reindeer herders). The siida is run by a reindeer herding family that is still active in this profession. Inside the siida entertainment and activities are based on the sami culture, as for example joik, the traditional sami way of singing. Of course there will also be reindeer that you can watch and photograph from close range. You can try your luck at throwing a lasso. Furthermore there is a small exhibition of sami handicraft, made by the women running the siida. Inside the lavvo the guests get a chance to ask all their questions while they will be served coffee. And maybe you want to try to drive reindeer in a sledge or on skis. Afterwards we return with the bus, back to the pier.
