Sámiland is the core region inhabited by the Sámi, extending across vast areas in Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Kola Peninsula in Russia. Sámiland is Sápmi in North Sámi, Säämi In Inari Sámi and Sääʹmm in Skolt Sámi, in the three Sámi languages spoken in Finland.
In Finland, Sámiland covers the area of Sámi Homeland which is situated in Northern parts of County of Lapland including Municipalities of Enontekiö, Inari and Utsjoki and the northern part of the Municipality of Sodankylä, that is, the area around Vuotso village. In Inari Municipality, there is also Skolt Sámi Area. Hence, unlike often presumed, the region better known as the Finnish Lapland or County of Lapland is not all part of Sámiland, only its northernmost municipalities mentioned above.
