Not to be confused with a different walpipe, a bagless instrument made from a cow's horn.

The walpipe is a type of bagpipe found historically in Lapland[1][2] (now known by its native name, Sápmi), a region of northern Scandinavia inhabited by the Sami people.

Late 18th century researchers noted two bagpipes in Lapland:[3] the sak-pipe and the wal-pipe.[4]
