Sami culture

Ritsem is also a stay for the Sami people since long time. Nowadays most people who have their part-time living here belong to "Unna Tjerusj Sami association". During the year reindeer grooming is being conducted in the area, if you want to experience it, it is important to show the animals and the workers consideration. If you would like to know more just ask us.

Day Trip

About fifty kilometers before Ritsem along the road, "Stora Sjöfallet" is worth a visit, stretch your legs and visit "Naturum Laponia" as well.


A nice Day Trip is to take the boat M/S Storlule over the river Áhkkajaure and hike about seven kilometers between Änonjalme and Vaisaluokta, this area belongs to the "Sirge's Sami association". Take a look at the chapel in Vaisaluokta and take the boat back to Ritsem in the evening. Ask the STF-staff in Ritsem about the most appropriate route.
