Story of Uksakka

In Sámi belief traditions, Uksakka, the doorkeeper, is one of the three daughters of Máttaráhkká, the mother of the land. Uksakka’s duties include guarding newborn children and protecting them from bumps and falls. Café Uksakka is Jaakkola reindeer farm’s youngest addition – the hoped for and long-awaited evening star, born somewhat unexpectedly, but fueled by strong intuition and passion.

Delicious Reindeer Food and Local Ingredients

Uksakka’s focus is on tasty reindeer food and other local, high-quality ingredients. The reindeer meat comes from our own herd, berries and mushrooms from nearby forests, and fish from local professional fishermen. In Uksakka’s small shop you can find, for example, berry products from local producers, turnip jam and natural herbs.

Atmospheric Milieu and Personalized Service

In Uksakka’s atmospheric milieu, attention is paid to hospitality and a relaxed, but friendly service as well as the comfort of our customers. Authentic candles create a cozy table atmosphere, the walls are decorated with the handiwork of local artists, and the large windows are decorated with natural wreaths made by a local master florist. Exactly the same interesting eye-catching decoration delights in the wonderful 52-seater kota restaurant at the reindeer farm in Alakitinen – the place where the world’s most famous TV chef, Mr. Gordon Ramsay, was moved to tears.
