Visit Norway Profile Information

  • Traditional Sami gávtii or gákti from Kautokeino worn by @nielsdunfjell ✅ Gákti is not static and frozen in the past. Even though some traditional elements are always present, gákti is a living costume, and its design follows the trends. ✅ Gákti (kofte in Norwegian) are worn for special occasions: weddings, christenings, funerals, festivals, on the Sami day (6th of February). ✅ Many gákti are hand made and it takes some time to finish one. As well as several meters of wool cloth and ribbons. This one was sewed for Niels by his mother.
✅ Gákti are different from region to region. It goes both for colours, jewelry, accessories and design. 
What is the name of your national costume?

  • A story of special type of attraction, the Svalbard attraction. Told and illustrated by  @emilien.gigandet
・・・
The first day I was in Svalbard, I met a couple from New Zealand. The were in Svalbard last summer and they did a 30 hours trip to come back there this winter. That day, I was a bit surprised someone could want to travel so long to come back on that small place... After 10 days there, I understand them 200% and I'll go back there too ;-) ⠀
