Sápmi Park information
Sami culture is big business here, and this impressive theme park includes a wistful, high-tech multimedia introduction to the Sami in the 'Magic Theatre', plus Sami winter and summer camps and other dwellings to explore in the grounds. There's also, of course, a gift shop and cafe – and Boble Glasshytte , Finnmark's only glass-blowing workshop and gallery.
