The Laponian Area, Sweden


Located in northern Sweden's Arctic Circle region, home of the Saami people, this is the largest and one of the last areas of the world supporting a semi-nomadic lifestyle revolving around the seasonal movement of livestock. The Saami lead their herds of reindeer into the mountains every summer, in addition to coastal fishing, fur trapping, and sheep herding.
