Sami Siida's story started in Bossekop (in Alta) in the late 90's.

 Every summer the reindeer herding Sami came there with their reindeer and the guests who came there got to meet the reindeer and talk to the reindeer herding Sami. The reindeer herding Sami experienced getting lots of questions from tourists about the Sami, the reindeer, the Sami culture and about Sami traditions. Therefore, they decided to start a permanent place in Alta where you can get to know the Sami.

 Sami Siida was started in Øvre Alta in 2002 by Berit Anne and Johan together with Kristine Nina and Nils Henrik.

In the winter they are with the reindeer on the Finnmarksvidda and in the summer they come down to the coast with the reindeer herd. The family has roots from Maze and Kautokeino and originates from reindeer herders in several generations. They live and work in a traditional Sami way this day today and provide this experience for their guests.

A visit to Sami Siida is an exceptional experience and something you`ll never forget.
An attractive meeting place for a good conversation and traditional dining experience in Alta. Here you will come in close contact with reindeer.
