Geunja Samisk Fjällgård – Lapplandsafari

Ted Logart

On the Geunja mountain farm, every guest is welcomed as a family member. The farm is run by Mikael and Ann-Kristine Vinka through Lapplandsafari AB, and it is located in the middle of the wilderness which makes up the Vindelfjällen nature reserve.

According to the seasons, activities vary between hiking, canoe excursions, fly-fishing, cross-country skiing, grouse-snaring and ice-fishing.

Lapland safari is based on safeguarding Sami culture, and the Vinka family is actively involved in protecting the local natural environment. They support the Mountain Fox Project, for example, whereas they strongly oppose the plan to build a road through the nature reserve. The number of groups per year is no more than 25 and a maximum of 12 guests are received at a time. For a total experience of Sami culture, good food and warm hospitality in majestic surroundings, Lapland safari and Geunja won the “Grand Travel Awards Ecotourism Prize” in 1999 and the WWF’s “Arctic Award” in 2001.
