Top Image: 1337

Nils M. Somby’s “siida” (Sami camp) is situated 22 km from Honningsvåg, nearby Nordkapp. A visit to the camp and the traditional “lavvu” (tent) belonging to the family, gives a firsthand view into the life and culture of the Sami people. For generations the family has had its summer camp on Magerøya, just a short walk from the road to Nordkapp. You can be served “bidos” (a Sami banquet) or just snacks and coffee. There will be “joik” (traditional Sami song) and other entertainment. A guide will also tell about Sami traditions, lifestyle and their history. There are reindeer close by the camp, offering an excellent opportunity to take photographs.
