It's a 'must see'. Among other things you can admire the gakti (traditional costume) of the Sami from various areas and buy reindeer products in the small market.
Local knowledge: the wildest reindeers prove to be the best in races.
In the spring of 2005, the entrance was 65 NOK.
The racing area is quite a distance from the centre, so it's best to get a ride by car.
