They weren't back in the olden days, of course. However, the Norwegian state forced the Sami to assimilate and become "proper" Norwegian citizens up until the first half of the 20th century - a process during which many Sami children were forced to attend boarding schools. Christian missionaries did theirs in attempting to achieve that goal and today, most Sami get baptized at least. The church generally doesn't play a big role in most peoples' life in Northern Norway, though, but some communities are more religious than others.

You're more than welcome and I totally understand! It's better to not jump on the tourist bandwagon and do something you might end up regretting later. Plus, these tours are quite pricey as well, so there really is no need if you're not feeling it 100%. Hope you'll have a lovely trip to Tromsø :)

Hi :) As I'm sure you've read, we didn't actually want to visit the purple beach but rather get to Hovden. As the weather was how it was, however, we only explored the area around the parking lot instead. According to Google Maps, it's still part of Mjelle but if the area has a different name than that, feel free to let me know :)

OMG, that's hilarious!!! I remember taking my Grandpa on a similar hike when I was much younger and although I had no idea that our destination would be that far away, my Grandma got so angry with him when we came home much later than she thought we would and she couldn't contact us :D Good thing it all turned out well for both of us :)
