through Sámi eyes
Everything is connected
During your stay, you will experience nature with all your five senses. And we will guide you to slow down with mindfulness and forest bathing and to go beyond what you know with Sámi spirituality.
TIME FOR A BREAK?
What we can offer
Forest bathing is about allowing ourselves to be drawn into, and surrounded by, nature in a relaxed state. About bathing with all our minds in what we feel, see, hear, taste and smell in nature. Research shows that with regular forest bathing and / or mindfulness, we can achieve many health benefits such as reducing stress, boosting the immune system, better mental health and strengthening of our cognitive abilities. And Sámi Safari Camp is perfect for peace, harmony, and thoughtfulness.
Mindfulness is when, through various exercises, we help ourselves become present to the “here and now”. When we practice mindfulness in nature, we observe nature within and outside ourselves. It gives us mental rest, calms us while we become more receptive to the beauty of nature. What characterizes mindfulness in nature, and how it differs from forest bathing, is that in addition to what we experience with our minds, we also make ourselves aware of what is going on inside our body. Research shows that with regular forest bathing and/ or mindfulness, we can achieve many health benefits such as reducing stress, boosting the immune system, better mental health and strengthening of our cognitive abilities.

The circle of life is a term for indigenous peoples’ view of life. Translated into Lule Sámi language, it becomes – Iellema gærdda – Life’s reindeer garden.
Indigenous peoples’ spirituality has traditionally been ecocentric. This means that nature has always been at the center of our spiritual traditions. In our understanding of the world, man is an integral part of nature, with a personal relationship to everything that lives and is there. All our relationships should be characterized by balance and reciprocity. And like other indigenous peoples, we Sámi also have a spiritual language – stories and rituals – for personal interaction with nature and to remind us on our values.
Through our Sami stories – from pre-Christian times to today – we guide you into the circle of life. You get to visit the places for the stories and experience how the stories inspire and guides us in all our relationships today.

Tranquility is not the absence of the storm, tranquility is rather to find peace in the midst of the storm.
