We can be found near Gilevuotna/Kjøllefjord, ringed by ridges covered with Alpine birch, downy willow bushes and pussywillow. Our place lies down by Store Finngamvannet, a lake filled with fish whose name is a reminder that our people have existed here for hundreds of years. Inside the yurt you’ll feel the warmth and the smell of a crackling fire of birchwood with a hint of willow. Pussywillow is Ailu’s favourite. The smell of the fire mingles with the aroma of reindeer hide, birchwood and reindeer-meat soup.

From time immemorial, whenever the Sami folk built up a fire of bark kindling and dry logs, they would sing the folk music known as ‘joik’. In a traditional turf-roofed hut you can get the feel of a roaring fire, good food, tales of Sami life, taste our history and of course the joik itself,
