Aernie means “hearth” and holds a central place in Sami culture. You can learn more about South Sami culture through storytelling and participating in cooking meals over a campfire.

Outdoor Lunch at Aernie

You can join in preparing your own lunch while learning about South Sami culture and history.

We make traditional Sami bread baked over a campfire. Bread plays a central role in the Sami meal and often served as a substitute for potatoes. Sami bread is different from the regular bread we know in Norwegian cuisine. During this lunch, you can choose from two options: served with butter and cheese or with fried, lightly smoked reindeer meat and accompaniments.

Great activity for the whole family, but also suitable for adults only.
There will be an opportunity to test your skills in lasso throwing.

Duration: 1 hour or more.
Must be booked one day in advance.

Stay in a Luxury Sami Hut

About the hosts

At Storli, you will meet the couple Toamma Bientie and Anne Berit Sætermo.

Toamma grew up in a South Sami reindeer herding family with a strong identity. His mother was an enthusiastic crafts person, and his grandfather was an excellent storyteller. This unique cultural heritage is carried by Toamma and conveyed through farm tourism at Storli.

Anne Berit brings with her the local farming culture that her family has preserved on the farm for 200 years. Her grandmother, in particular, has been a great source of inspiration and mentor for her interests in various traditions such as weaving and baking.

Both are trained educators and genuinely passionate about knowledge-based storytelling and cultural heritage.

Indulge in a culinary and cultural experience at Storli!
