VisitSápmi is the Swedish Sámi initiative to create indigenous tourism in Sápmi. Sápmi is the land of the Sámi, often called Lapland. The Sámi have long been used for marketing tourism without benefit to the indigenous community. Sámi traditions have been exploited and an untrue picture of Europe’s only indigenous people has been created. VisitSápmi is working towards changing this. We have created a quality label for sustainable ethical Sámi service providers called Sápmi Experience. The criteria are inspired by Aboriginal tourism in Australia and the Swedish Ecotourism label Nature’s Best. Sápmi Experience will help you find indigenous tourism that is ethical, sustainable and respectful to all involved.
