Siida, Inari

#1 of 13 in Things to do in Inari
The historic pasture of the Siida feeds herds of Sami reindeer native to the area. The Sami are an ancient community of people who maintain the tradition of nomadic reindeer herding through the pastureland. Their practices are protected by law and so are the lands through which they move the reindeer herds. The attraction serves as a meeting place to learn about the arctic cultures whose way of life depends of the migrating herds. The National Museum of the Finnish Sámi and the Nature Centre of Metsähallitu work together to preserve the natural surroundings and culture at the site. An open-air museum as well as indoor exhibits display the artifacts of everyday life, such as textiles, clothing, and cooking utensils. At the on-site restaurant, sample the local mountain berries and reindeer meat--staples of the Sami diet.

  • The centre of Sami culture, to visit without fail. The Museum is not very large but well present, enriching, exciting. The souvenir shop artisans Sami products.

  • A good place with plenty information of Sami culture and Arctic cycle. Admission fee is not expensive. The restaurant is always busy since the food is nice. If you were here around, this is a place worth to visit.
  • A great Sapmi and Natural Museum in Inari Lapland. Worth to visit. Entrance fee is 10Euro per Adult.
  • Fantastic museum! A must see if you are around the Inari area, food served daily which always goes down very nicely. Staff are very helpful and friendly.
  • The museum is nice if you are not going to spend a lot of time there or is also good if you plan to have lunch there. But is a small place and you can also buy some artistic things from Sami culture.
  • Small but very nice culture center / museum, relatively near the main road. I recommend a visit for any one that's passing by - then again I am a bit biased. So the rating might depend on your personal interest. =)
