Welcome to Kautokeino

The town is, frankly, dull in summer, since so many of its people are up and away with the reindeer in their warm-weather pastures (in winter, by contrast, around 100,000 reindeer live hereabouts). What makes a visit well worthwhile is Juhls' Sølvsmie (Juhls' Silver Gallery), just out of town and housing a magnificent example of the best of Scandinavian jewellery design. It's also a rather pretty place when seen from the surrounding hills.
