Reindeer herding For thousands of years reindeer have been the mainstay of the Saami people. In the olden days the Saami followed their animals from the mountains to the coast in a seasonal ow. From the reindeer they got food, milk, clothing and materials to make the tools they needed. Even today almost the whole animal is used. But the way the Saami perform their tasks nowadays is dierent. Today helicopters, snow-mobiles, quads, motorbikes and trucks are used. Instead of having to walk the 200-300 kilometres from mountain to coast twice a year the reindeer are now transported by truck. To gather the reindeer together in enclosed areas for branding, slaughtering and sorting, the Saami use helicopters as well as snow-mobiles in the winter. 14

The Saami often use snow-mobiles in the winter to herd the reindeer.

If you want to know more about the Saami, visit the Silver Museum in Arjeplog, where you can see the

development of reindeer herding and the Saami people. Winter 2011

Contact Johan Fjellström LiLAB, Storgatan 12, Arjeplog Tel 0961 - 616 88 Email: Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights has fascinated people for thousands of years.

The Saami (Lapps) thought that the lights in the sky had something to do with the weather. In Finland they imagined that the Northern Lights were a reflection of the Saami following their reindeer with lanterns. Many cultures talk of the Northern Lights in terms of dancers in the sky. In the 17th century these lights received the Latin name, Aurora Borealis. The poetic meaning of the word ‘aurora’ is the red sky at dawn. The Northern Lights appear in the Arctic sky in an oval around the North Pole and in the Antarctic around the South Pole. The Northern Lights appear in shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet but our eyes are most sensitive to green. They can be seen in a variety of forms, such as patches of light, in the form of streamers, arcs, banks, rays, or as hanging draperies. 20

Don’t miss the Northern Lights!

The Northern Lights and full moon over Lake Hornavan and Galtispouda Mountain at the end of September this year.

They can be there for a few minutes or an hour and you never know, each time is as exciting as the first. The Northern Lights can only be seen when the night skies are dark enough, from about mid-September to early April. If the weather is good and there are

no clouds, go outside away from the lights of the town and look up into the sky. It is amazing to see the lights moving in the heavens.You might even hear the sounds that are associated: atmospherics and tweeks. The lights can be seen usually between 21.00 and midnight. Enjoy! Winter 2011

Drive to Norway The Norwegian border is only two hours by car (139 km) from Arjeplog, 225 km from Arvidsjaur. Choose a day when the weather is clear and you will experience the magnificent scenery, along the Silver Road, of the unspoilt countryside and the mountains into Norway. On the way, you pass the Arctic Circle where there is a large sign. There is a petrol station and shop as well as a ski-slope in Jäckvik which is a beautiful village on the Silver Road, 80 km from the Norwegian border. This whole area is very popular in the winter with people who ride snow-mobiles because of the wide open spaces and good snow-mobile trails.

Make sure the road is open Before you leave Arjeplog, make sure that the road at the border is open and not blocked with snow. Two large signs show this information: one sign is situated one kilometre from the town of Arjeplog along the Silver Road, and the other is at the Laisvall turn-off, 26 kilometres from Arjeplog. Most things are more expensive in Norway than in Sweden and many Norwegians come over the border to Arjeplog and Arvidsjaur to shop.
