Meeting of two local cultures
The Homestead Kafé will be closed until 8:th december because of the pandemic. We follow advice from the Swedish Public Health Agency.
WELCOME TO OUR BEAUTIFUL HEMBYGDSGÅRD/OLD HOMESTEAD on the banks of the TORNE RIVER
Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with home-made bread or a cinnamon bun, baked in the traditional way, using the stone oven in our cottage bakery.
Be inspired by our wonderful handicraft made by local craftspeople, using materials gathered from nature: a thousand-year-old craft that has been passed down throughout the ages, from the old to the young, generation to generation.
Join a guided tour of our museum and learn the story of our local cultures, the Sami and the Tornedalian – a story that takes you back to the Ice Age. You will learn about the year-round challenges of outdoor life in the arctic climate, and how we humans in Lapland learned to forage, taking advantage of nature’s offerings. A coexistence between man and nature over thousands of years.
