“The main reason to come here is to learn about Sami culture and the nature here. You will get great insight into the culture of the old days and until today,” says Åsa Sundqvist, marketing officer at Ájtte in north Sweden. With ten permanent and three temporary exhibitions, an alpine garden, a restaurant and a shop, this is a complete destination for diving into the local culture and history. Ájtte is located ten kilometres north of the Arctic Circle and is the gateway to Laponia, the UNESCO World Heritage site that has been the home of nomadic hunters and reindeer keepers since time immemorial. One of the oldest exhibitions at the museum, exploring the region, is called Laponia.
