Snufkin – Nomaden

Snusmumrikken og Mummitroll er bestevenner. Det ser ut til at hvis Mummi-fansen kunne velge en venn å tilbringe tid med fra Mummidalen – ville de fleste av oss også valgt Snufkin som vår venn.

Når den første snøen treffer Mummidalen, kommer Snufkin på veien. Han drar hver vinter og kommer tilbake når snøen begynner å smelte om våren. Men hvor tilbringer han vintrene sine?

Snufkin’s outfit

Our favorite Moomin is known from his green clothing. He is almost always wearing his cone shaped hat. The story goes he has had it since birth! Snufkin often has either his pipe or flute on his lips and might be carrying a fishing rod whether he is fishing or not. Sometimes Snufkin’s hat has flowers, often just a single feather though. He is often wearing a scarf, even during summer.

Besides the outfit, Snufkin can be recognized from orange or brownish hair and brown eyes. 

He must be the most laid back Moomin character. Snufkin lives alone, but does not mind to be around the others either. He is calm, yet gets things done when needed. 


Det finnes for tiden tre forskjellige Arabia Mumin-krus, hvor Snufkin er hovedpersonen. Han er også omtalt i flere forskjellige mummikrus.  Disse krusene er:

Det finnes også andre Snufkin Mummiprodukter, som glass, boller, tallerkener og så videre.

Background: The character is said to be based on Atos Wirtanen, who had some controversial views.

He is also known to be quite a philosopher and a free spirit, some could describe him as a hippie. He is a wanderer and reminds me about mountain and rock climbers.
