Holmenes Coastal Sami Farm

Date: Wednesday 11 jul 2018 - Sunday 12 Aug 2018 Show map

Holmenes Farm by the Lyngenfjord is a living example of a Coastal Sami farm in North Troms.

If you visit Holmenes farm, you can get an insight into how Coastal Sami families lived by the Lyngenfjord before the war. The farm dates to around 1850 and was settled until 1964. A visit here will provide an insight into the contrasts between then and now!

Did you know that the farm has been returned to its appearance around 1930 and consists of a farmhouse, woodshed, outhouse, stable and hay barn...? One of the boathouses down by the sea belongs to the farm.

Attend a market and festival
If you attend the market day in July each year, you can eat traditional food and the children can take part in old games. This event also features demonstrations of traditional handicraft techniques, such as dying wool with plant pigments, fulling and traditional weaving.
