Helena Länta, Reindeer Herder & Speciality Reindeer Meat Producer
Helena is living her passion, right in the middle of the Sami reindeer husbandry life where the love for the animal is the hub.
Together with her family she’s also part of their business ”Sápmi Ren & Vilt” which enables them to process the meat, that has had almost free range in the forests and high mountains of Jokkmokk and the world heritage listed Laponia, in a very special way.
To follow the track of the reindeer from forest to mountain and to let the seasons decide the work to be done and what food to eat is what life is all about for many of the reindeer herders, as well as for Helena.
Eva Gunnare, Food Creator & Culture Guide
Eva’s passion is the wild flavours, primarily from wild herbs and berries.
As a food creator in her business ”Essense of Lapland” it is a joy to live in Jokkmokk with the clean nature right here, not just around the corner.
Eva picks, by hand, flavours from the forest, meadow, marsh and mountain in and around Jokkmokk and process them in her own unique and in different ways. Both traditionally and new by experimenting and developing new flavours and taste-combinations, which is a big part of Eva’s work.
