Visiting Sápmi-Lapland (Fennoscandia)

Saami is spoken in Sápmi-Lapland region of Fennoscandia (a geographical region comprising four countries namely: Russia, Finland, Norway and Sweden). There are approximately 30,000 speakers of the Uralic language of Saami.

Visiting Lapland will almost guarantee you a one-way ticket into fascination. While it isn’t likely to see polar bears or rocky fjords, there is something that makes this land so precious. The combination of the midnight sun, the Sámi peoples, the aurora borealis, along with the residence of Jolly Old Saint Nick himself, makes Lapland what it is today. Even ask the locals how magical it really is!

Here are some of the basic Saami phrases that you will use often:

  • Mu namma lea... (My name is...)
  • Oaidnaleapmai! (See you later!)
  • Man boaris don leat? (How old are you?)
