Sjøsamisk Tun is located in the litlle village of Smørfjord, only 300 metres down from E69, the road to the North Cape, approximately 70 km north of Lakselv. Here you may visit our open-air museum which shows how the Coastal Sami lived around 1900. Sjøsamisk Tun is open to tourists throughout the summer and you are welcome to have a look around or to shop, to stay overnight or just for a welcome break.  

The museum consists of several traditional Sami constructions and items which together show the daily life of the Coastal Sami and their close relation to the nature. The buildings were traditionally constructed by use of trunks and turf (peat).

We can offer accomodation in a traditional Sami tent - lavvo - and it is also possible to put up tents on our ground. In our kiosk you can buy refreshments, souvenirs, locally produced handicraft and fishing gear and also have a taste of traditional food. Smørfjord is centrally located in the Finnmark county and many of our guests choose to use Sjøsamisk Tun as a base camp to visit other destinations in the area. The surrounding nature offers splendid opportunities to hike and there are many good sites for angling and fishing near by.
